Foal
Please Please Critique My Horse - I fixed it!!

This is my yearling stallion Radar. I baught him about a month ago at 11 months old. This picture was taken at around 8 months old. He is a grand baby out of paint horses leading sire Awesome Mr Conclusion and Barlink Macho Man. Let me know what you think. I am trying to decide if I should geld him. He looks even better after a couple months of owning him. Also if you could let me know what you think of my two year old mare (bay). Thank you!

Foal
The first one looks downhill and gooserumped, but might fill out nicely.

The second one looks downhill and has a flat back. Maybe cow hocked? It's hard to tell.

Horse #1:
Very downhill - will probably grow out of it. Very long backed. Straight pasterns.
Nice color and pattern though!

Horse #2:
Very hard pic to critique. Straight pasterns.


As for gelding, ask yourself these questions:
- Are you willing to promote a stallion? (i.e. Take it to shows and increase his value)?
- Does he have impeccable conformation, temperament and breeding?
- Will he improve the breed?
- Do you have stallion handling experience?

If you said yes to all of the above, then I have no problem with him being kept a stallion; however, if you answered no to any of them, I'd geld him.
There are a TON of stallions out there, so only if he's an impeccable specimen should he be kept intact... :)

Typically I don't like critiqueing foals because their confirmation is so odd and uneven that's its hard to tell what is really what.

Number one is downhill because its a baby, all babies are down hill most likely it will remain downhill because its a common confirmation flaw. Pigeon toed, posty legged, goose rumped. Im not going to go any further into it because again, he is a baby.


Number two: Flat backed, and cow hocked, that's all I am really going to point out.
