Kind Critique plz.

This is Dhom he is my new boy. He is 6-7 yrs old and 15h. I am not sure his breed, any ideas? Any opinions confo. wise? I only ride western, what do you think hed be good for based on his confo? I know his toes are long in these pics, i trimmed them after i took the pics but didnt take more... I was pretty pressed for time, so i didnt get any good ones, but if you could go based off of these id appreciate it!



new7.jpg He normally doesnt stand with his legs together like this, just decided to this shot.. you can see in the last pic that he is naturally pretty square with his hind legs...

new6.jpg He looks uncomfortable in this pic, He had nipped at Joe so he got a tug... Thanks!

Are you sure he is 15hh? Did you stick him?
He looks alot shorter than that. Maybe an arabian cross? Some traits look arabianish to me.
He looks like his head is quite a bit too big for his body.
But I gotta tell you, he is one of the cutest little guy Ive ever seen! xD

He knows when you're happy He knows when you're comfortable He knows when you're confident And he always knows when you have carrots.

i wouldn't say arab with a head like that- he looks welshy to me- as horseluver said he doesn't look 15.... he's got lovely markings- i think rugged and stabled he could be a very pretty boy.. his forelegs seem a bit laid back. how does he move? to me it seems he would have a short stride

hes adorable! i love his color! haha Horseluver50, i think he looks a little outta proportion because of the way the pics are taking so close to him :P

he looks like he has a nice confo! nicely put together. i dont really see anything really wrong with him, (im nto an expert! lol) but i think he would do well in any disciplne. he looks like soemthing cob-ish to me... lol right now i cant think of any breed, but the name of the breed i want to say is on the tip of my tongue!!! urgh he looks exactly like one little horse ive seen....... i will remember the breed sometime!! lol

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

HorseLover-I sure did stick him, i was like no way when i was told he was 15h when i got him but sure enough, right at! He and joe are on an incline in the pics and Joe is further up.. maybe thats why he looks sooo small in these pics? Idk, but i am 5'4" and his withers are right at my nose. Thanks, he is a cutie but such a groucher!
XivoShowJumper- Actually he is really smooth, like butta! lol Not a choppy gait at all...
ridergirl23- Ya he is out of prop(sorry guys not enough time!), his head aint really that big!! lol unless you are talkin ego wise...hehe
Thanks guys keep em comin!

Er, I really like him. ^__^; Sorry not to be of much help!

Agreed, he resembles a breed I know but I can't for the life of me think of the name...

His head is a little big but not terribly. I think he's reasonably put together and has lovely markings and color. He is stocky and I would guess he's a mustang cross of some type. There is one here at the barn that is built just like him.

I agree - he looks like a welsh cross. Probably quarter horse, too. Going off of looks alone.

He does have a big head, but that's not such a bad thing ;)
He's adorable!!!
