Looking at a few of those pictures... do you have problems with his feet? They look sort of small, and have a very "soft" appearance... if that makes sense.. I've had a horrendous time with the pink feet on Paint horses, they tend to hold weird shapes and angles =/ He appears to have a very steep build too (looking at his pasterns and shoulders). Is he due for another trim? His toes seem a hair long, and in the 3rd picture it looks like he is rocked back on his heels because of it. It may just be me over-analyzing though ^^

To keep Jasmine and Skippy! from buckling over, they both had to have their toes chopped. It looked so ouchie x_x!!!

I noticed in the first and last picture he holds his back right leg funny.. is that just how he rests? it just stood out to me =)

What is it with mostly white paints and mud? They just love it dont they?!! And I LOVE his neck! Especially in that second picture. <3

Beautiful horse!!

Thank you for your comments. :o)

Nope,i have not had any problems with his feet. Its been 6 weeks since he was last done for shoes.

Why do you love his neck?

Ive owned my paint horse for 5 months. :)

I really like the way it meets with his throatlatch, as well as the general shape/thickness of it. He seems to have a good natural low headcarriage =) I'd love to see how nice it looks without the wooly-booly hair on it!

His chest also looks really nice, from the pictures i see, it looks really broad =)

He is a little on the thin side for what I like to see. I can't give a good conformation critique with these pictures, hes a really cute boy anyways :)

I have to agree. His feet seem abit small. Perhaps putting jello powder in his feed. I know it sounds crazy but it does help make the feet grow and it keeps the feet strong.
