It's finally time to Critique my BLU!! Yay!

Finally! Alright, now you guys can critique my Blu. All comments welcome: good and bad.
Notes: Everything about Blu is real. Even his tail. Blu is cow-hocked, has a little bit of a dish in his face, etc. Tell me everything anyways! :-D

This IS a video. So click on it and let's get started!

you have a handsome horse. He looks so sweet. I'm not the best at conformations so I'll leave it to the experts.

Blu has such a sweet face I just want to give him a hug :) He looks really good though, well muscled.

Now remember you told me to critique your horse, and that is what I am going to do. First off your horse- in my opinion- has a not so attractive face, now I'm just saying that because I'm not one for pink around the eyes. Secondly, I don't know why but it appears to me that his front legs are a little swollen it may just be because he looks slightly pigeon-toed. But other then that his conformation looks decent , he could be better muscled, just needs worked a little more I would say, but he looks nice.

I understand. He isn't pigeon-toed that I know of. He wouldn't square long enough for a picture lol so I had to move his feet. He has a little dish in his face. And an arched tail. That's the Arab showing. When I checked his legs they felt bigger than usual. I didn't understand why. Then were solid. Not tender or swollen. Any ideas? I think for the Reservation horse he is...he looks pretty darn good!
THANKS!!!

I have been told that Blu is a Fewspot Appaloosa. He has the creamy mane and tail but he is white with the Appaloosa coloring on his skin...pink and blue. Most people are not fond of the color. It took me a little while to get used to. I have had Appys all my life. He is just a little prettier to me.

THANKS!

I think he has progressed so much in those little months! He needs an attitude adjustment :roll: but otherwise he is great.

THANKS!
