    What do you think of Painter? I just bought him Monday! I know his head is too wide, but other than that I know nothing about horse conformation. Sorry for the bad picture, I just took a quick one for his insurance.

    He's built downhill. I do like his color though.

    Sorry to sound stupid, but whaty does being built downhill mean? Like I said I know nothing about conformation

    His butt is higher than his withers.
    Basically like his hind end is higher than his front end. But that's just what it seems.

    He is definitely built downhill from what I can see
    There's something about his neck that I do not like, but I can't see what

    He's really pretty though!!! I love his markings...and his face

    I actually think he looks nice and I don't see much wrong with his head at all. Beautiful boy!

    Thanks! I think his neck looks off because of the way he's looking at the camera. He's got a great trot and canter when he does it right. I just started him over crosspoles, and he jumps HUGE ! I think he'll be great with training though

    Head too wide?? Just means he has a bigger brain

    Do you feel awkward when you ride him? Other then his head, he looks OK to me.

    What a cutie! I don't think his head is too wide! I love big heads.

    I'm guessing by his name that he's a Paint, correct? How old is he?

    At first glance, I thought he was a little downhill too. But then, look at the white beam (on ceiling) above's also "downhill." I think the camera angle is just a little off. If you were to rotate the whole photo 1 degree counter-clockwise, I'm sure Painter would look level/balanced.

    I really like him a lot...maybe work on that tail though, it's a little scraggly.
