    Please critique Starsky

    He is a 10 year old QH gelding 16.1hh. We ride him western. Any critiques would be appreciated. I am not very good at determining conformation.

    I actually think he looks REALLY nice. Just one thing you might want to get checked out by a vet if you haven't already is that his front left leg seems to be turned to the inside a little bit. Atleast that is how it looks in the pictures.

    Yes, I had to take quite a few pictures of him (trying) to stand square, and every one ended up with his feet looking weird. He wanted to know what the camera was and was trying to inspect it. I will get another picture of that angle tomorrow.

    Nice boy ya got there!!
    Well here are some things I see: long back, round topline, his left front hoof is faceing inward. So you should build up his topline a little more.
    Oh, and he could use some conditioning. If you have any questions about anything on starsky feel free to PM me!!!!!!!!

    He has nice straight legs. He has a tad of a long back and maybe almost butt high. I'd like to see more toning on his hindquarters. Other than me being a little picky he looks nice.

    Aww, he is really cute. He looks slightly downhill, he has good, even legs, long neck- he's well built. :) I like him!

    He is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Like a few people said building up his topline would help a little, but I really like him

    He looks like this horse that used to be at my barn. His name was RIO.

    He needs a friend named Hutch.

    Haha, I know. When we got him, the people had named him Star, and I am a big believer about not changing a horse's name because of bad luck, so I tried to give him a more masculine name, hence Starsky. Although written out, it looks pretty feminine. Haha. But we do need another horse.
