    Ok wanting some critique, and just for fun, guess how much?

    Looking to get some critique on my boys conformation and movement. Sorry these probably arent the most suitable pics, I tried to get him on the flattest ground I could find. He is only a yearling yet but maybe we can work out some expectations? His details are ( at time of photos ) 1 year, 3 months, about 15hh at withers. He is a percheron/thoroughbred, and Im hoping to so hunter over fences with him when he's older. His first year under saddle will be basics, 2nd year will be the harder stuff like leg yeilding and side passing. Third year we'kk start some small courses.

    Just for fun!! Does anyone want to guess how much I paid for him? He is un reg obviously, uncut yearling.

    *Sorry the pics aren't the best*

    Just like to add he is reaaaallllyyyy butt high in the 2nd pic. And it looksliek he's leaning?? Sorry I didnt realize the pic was so bad. Just do your best and Ill try to get better confo shots of him soon. Also Ill repost some when he's 2 and evened out a bit. I think he's going to end up uphill built

    I <3 hot vampires, haha that shirt is crackin me up. :)

    He looks over at the knee, real straight shouldered, and his croup is too steep. He has a thick throatlatch (and neck) and his pasterns may be a bit weak. He looks kinda cow-hocked, and like the above post, I think he's going to be uphill. But in a way that's good, cause it's better than downhill for your purpose for him. He needs more muscle in his rump, and he looks a bit skinny in some of the photos.

    Cute boy, interesting cross :)
    Are you going to geld him?

    He's a big boy already! Haha! Hope you get him gelded soon, because that's going to be alot of stallion to deal with.

    I don't like his hoof\pastern angles...in some of the pics they really are kittywompus...like the farrier has mess up his feet really good...a good farrier can refix that, seeing as he is so young, it's just better to avoid it altogether, especially when they go through so many growth spurts.

    He's got a decent shoulder, but he has a really short thick neck. He is slightly over at the knee on his front legs, and is a bit cowhocked in the rear. He is really downhill, but at his age, that's not too much of a concern at this point. He seems to have decent movement, and hopefully he will make a really nice all around type horse when he grows into his legs!

    He's going to be one powerful horse, and will be really a nice looking one at that; he's just really gangly right now...I bet in another 6 months he will look entirely different, and hopefully more balanced!

    I definetly saw the thick throatlatch, and thick short neck thing right away ha ha. Also spotted the over at the knee. He is quite skinny in some pics because when I got him the only belly he had was fully of worms. I will post some pics. You'll also see why his feet look that way :( My farrier is correcting them. These pics are from July and I think a couple early August, I only got him in June but he does look a heck of a lot better now. Ill post the pics. Also Im hoping he makes 17hh ha ha

    Here is what I mean, you'll see a big change from when I got him to now condition wise. Alot of wormer, feed, and farrier work has gone into him since I got him. Also some light exercise on the lunge line, but I don't want to over work him, he's only a baby. These are kind of in stages since I've had him. I don't have any recent ones of him with his winter coat though :( You'll get the idea.

    Yeh that's the most recent, I wanted the to post on order but my boyfriend saw it and said I really only needed to post those 2 ha ha. He looks kind of ratty and gangly at the moment with his winter coat and butt highness.
