Please critique my two year old.

Kaliif is 2 and a half and I would like your oppinion about him.
I will start training him in November so I have some time to think about what he would be best at. So far I have had some people think that he would do better in dressage.
Since I'm awfully bad when it comes to critique my own horses you can be as harsh as you want :)

No critique, but man he is gorgeous! I love all of the jumping pictures! You sure lucked out with a stunning horse like that!

I agree, looks underweight though! I love his color, he's absolutely gorgeous.. definitely a looker for the show ring .

EDIT : something weird about his walk in the third picture.

Thanks :) I'm the only one who thinks he's a total devil!
I also thought that he might be a bit underweight so I had a vet check him before the first trials. He said that he's perfectly normal. He had a hughe spurt in growth at that time. Vet said that it's perfectly normal for young sport tipes to look a BIT underweight, but not much.
I try to take some pictures at the end of the week. He was in summer pasture for 2 months. And we always have a fresh clover pasture for newly gelded horses where he is now. He look like a pregnant mare. I'm devastated :)

And about the third picture (you ment the lunging one I suppose?).
Imagine lungign 2 year old stallion beside a mare pasture. Fun!
The decision to geld him was hard but right thing to do. He would have grown ower me eventually.

Good job on deciding to geld him. I know that's its not always the easiest thing to do, especially if you have others telling you that you shouldn't, but I think that he'll make an awesome gelding. He has a cute little jump, and to me he looks more like he just isn't finished developing, so he isn't filled out yet, nor does he have a lot of muscling going on. His butt does look a little bit flatter that I'd like to see, but not bad, and I love how much bone he has. His neck looks well placed, and connects to his body pretty nicely. I would love to see him as he grows and fills out more as he gets older. He looks cute over fences, I think that he might make a cute hunter, but I'd wait until he fills out more and grows more before deciding exactly where you want to head him. The basics of training should be the same anyways no matter where you decide to head him, so focus on that first, and see how he moves, and responds as you put more work into him, and then decide, or heck, do both lol.

Wait my bad. I meant the 5th picture, where he's walking .. lol
    09-27-2010, 07:43 PM
Yeah, that picture is weird, he's dragging his back foot...
    09-27-2010, 09:52 PM
Isn't that just the sign of a lazy horse? Lol Won't pick his feet up all the way?
    09-27-2010, 09:56 PM
He does have nice bone pretty good looking boy.

Dressagebelle: He's deffenitly not filled out yet. That's why I think the land work is going to last longer than I expected. I might be starting to do somthing in the saddle in spring but it might turn out in summer instead. I so much afraid to do somthing wrong with him. He learns everything really quickly and that includes bad habits. And thank you for the oppinion

Oh he can be laizy while working. He is able to jump and run around all the time but when he is asked to do somthing he makes a face that says 'I'm too tired to work!'
