please critique - sport horse yearling

Hello... Valenti is a colt, Romanian sport Horse breed, 1 year and 5 months old. He currently stands at 16 - 16.2 hands height so I guess that he will be very tall. He was gelded at one year old. I know that it's hard to critique an yearling but I just want to see if he has some major flaws.

And sorry for his weight. He had hernia so he was operated 2 months ago so in that period he lost weight. Now he began to put some weight back on him. Soon he will be just fine .

I really hope that the first photos are good for critiques. Those are the only photos when Valenti stood really squared. I couldn't took photos of his front and back legs because he follows me everywhere.



This one is just cute.

16-16.2 hands? Is that with a stick?
Just wondering because my warmblood yearling (May '09) is only 14.3ish. (Don't have a usable stick right now to know for sure.)

I didn't measured him with a stick, it's just an approximation. For a comparison, the girl next him in the picture is 5'9'' tall. Valenti seems to be 160 - 163 cm tall so this mean he is near 16 hands or 16 hands tall.

I'd estimate him closer to 15 - the height at his withers, where you would be measuring his height, looks to be at or even a bit below her shoulder.

I'm not really loving the way his neck looks, something about it is sitting off to me.

I would rather comment when he is in good condition. He is very unappealing as of now.

Ps. His left rear hock looks very odd

@ churumbeque : You must take into consideration that this horse is a rescue. He was sent to slaughter with another one that had an old fracture at the leg. He is from a stud farm. They sent him to slaughter only because he had hernia.

I asked the question about his conformation because it seems to be something wrong with his conformation and I couldn't tell what. We don't want to use him at jumps or other things like this. He will be used only for riding at an equitation center.

The horse is now at a horse shelter were I'm volunteering, so it's not my horse. I only try to know all I can about the cases were I have doubts.

And thank you all for the inputs.

@themacpack It seems that I'm not very good at approximations . Thank you for telling me his height more accurately. And yes, his neck seems to be odd. He seems to be ewe necked but I'm not really sure.

I think his neck will change with weight and excercise so I didn't think it was a fair assessment in his current condition but his hock will not change.

Hes camped out in the back :P AND HAS LONG PASTURNS, but he's pretty level at his age. Good luck with him
