My Appaloosa Colt

This is my appaloosa colt Spud (again). I think these are the best pictures of him so far, so I wanted to see if I would get a few more citiques on him other than the 'Hes Cute' (but I do like to hear that too! And so does Spud)... good or bad.

A few food's for thought:
His pedigree: Myspotsundetectable Appaloosa

He does need a trim, I am aware but long story short the farrier at this barn isnt going near him, he moves to the new barn Friday (fingers crosses) so within the next two weeks he will get his feet done, sadly I can't get it done any sooner.

He was given to me; I didnt buy him; I didnt breed him; he is NOT my ideal choice, saddly.
I wasnt really looking to get him or keep him but I just couldnt walk away, so hear we are! I just got to attached I guess and I felt sorry for him.

I am moving him to an Appaloosa barn, thye show at Appy shows in everything and anything. I would really like to show him eventually, but I'm not sure he is 'quality' enough.
If I could do ANYTHING with him that I wanted (conformation aside) I would go for (in this order) Western Pleasure, Reining, Hunter Under Saddle... and then go from there!

Ok, let me hear it... I really need to know what I got myself into .

Ps, Dad is 14.3 (but small for his breeding, his babys always out grow him)
Mom is 15.2 ish.

(lol, he is very cute!) I don't see too much wrong with his confo. His toes go out a bit in the rear and, overall, his legs are not amazing. However, he does look very muscular/ athletic and his markings are very pretty! (I LOVE bay with black points!)

I think he's adorable and I love the whole story behind his name ;) I can't get over his lil pot belly. I know you were worming him but still it's so cute and ticklable. Can't wait to watch him grow up.

I totally passed up the comment on "other than he's cute" ROFL. I think if he grows into himself he'll make a nice looking horse. Well put together for a youngster. I'm not really good with confirmation. The only thing I notice is that he has his back legs tucked under him but it could be just the way he is standing.

He's adorable. The only thing that really catches my eye is that he's a little cow-hocked in back (not too bad) and I think he could use more muscle in the butt, but that will come with age. Adorable. You should be proud of your baby!

His confo is typical for a baby... most are pretty cow hocked for a while. I think he is adorable!
