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 thats 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!

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

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!

Ride more, worry less.

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! :)

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

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!
