    After much thought, I've decided to put Montana up to be critiqued.
    Please don't be overly harsh, as he is my baby :)

    15 years old
    Stands about 15-15.2ish
    Registered QH
    He's been out of work for a couple years so he lost muscles in his top line and has gained cubbiness.

    These are the best pictures I have ATM. This if when he first arrived.
    Left side. *The ground is not perfectly flat.

    Right side *sorry his head is turned. He is also standing on a bit of an inclide.

    And a butt shot *not the best, but that's what I have at the moment.

    OK, starting from the top ..... hmmm, nothing wrong there
    Oh, I know, his legs ..... hmmm those are pretty good too.
    I like his head and neck, he's short coupled, I like that too.
    Color? No that's not it.

    I KNOW WHAT IT IS THAT I DON'T LIKE - he's not in my barn.

    I like him a good deal, I hope he handles as nice as he looks. Good luck with him!

    He is gorgeous. :) Nice long legs, nice croup, he has a lot of muscles in his front end it looks like (around his shoulder & neck area), love that color!

    There is nothing that I don't like about him. He's a fantastic looking boy...

    Iridehores, you cracked me up!

    Thanks Iride, unfortunately, I don't plan on selling him. :) But thank you for the complements :)

    Thanks Pop!
    He defintely has a lot of muscling in the front end... I plan on working on the back end with a lot of trot transitions and pole work.

    Thanks Tiffanny! :)

    He's well built boy. I'm sure you'll have lots of fun with him!

    You're hunting really paid off this time!!!!

    I've been doing a bit of riding. My saddle doesn't fit him properly so I don't ride with my saddle, but I did ride him the other night bareback. We did very well :) Now we just have to start getting back into shape. Well him back into shape and me recovering.

    Thanks Amy. I'm really glad I was really picky and didn't settle on the first horse I saw. I'm sorry, but you can't have him. You can come visit him though :)

    His croup is a bit steep but that can be from a lack of muscle like you originally stated. Excellent color....shows me he's well fed and healthy!
