Smile Pls critique confo - 2yr old SE Arab gelding

I finally have some decent pictures of Bakkir to critique. I am hopelessly in love with him so i dont see much to fault - lol

Bakkir is a 2 yr old Straight Egyptian Arabian gelding

By MB Ibn Sehnab (Imperial Madheen x Sehnab by Jamil) out of ESA Carina Express (RZA Orient Express)

He is only pasture fit at the moment, 14.3hh and growing of course.









And this one shows his personality - lol!



So tell me what you think of him.

No critique, but I think he's gorgeous. I love the way he is graying.

He's soso pretty! I don't see any confirmation faults that stand out or anything, so if there are any, then they are probably very minor.

Thanks guys.

Anyone want to take a stab at his conformation? I know he is long through the loin and gaskin.

I am an Arab fanatic and I am unable to find anything seriously wrong with him. He's absolutely breathtaking, and he has a fantastic build for distance riding.

He reminds me much more of the older style Arabs moreso then the newer style ones, which I vastly prefer. A slender face with enough dish to let you know he's probably SE but not so much that he borders on deformed. Beautiful length of back, into a gorgeous round and well defined hindquarter, no table-top useless halter croup here!

His legs are lovely and straight, one might think camped out a bit but I'll bet dollars it's just the way he's standing and those hind legs are actually in closer to ideal degree. I love his pasterns, a proper length to make for a comfortable stride and holding up under pressure.

Beautiful neck, well defined and set at the expected angle for an Arabian - and into a lovely shoulder that's going to work well for him out on the trails.

I stand corrected - I CAN'T find fault with him! There are a few things that land under personal preference such as the length of back, length of gaskin, length of pastern, etc. that some people may be able to criticize, but I don't classify those as true faults. He has nothing indicative that he will do anything but flourish under hard riding.

Wow thank you so much. The yearling picture was the one I saw and fell in love with. I just had to have him.

I think you are right his Dam is old style. I would love to own her too.

This is her with Bakkir



And this is his sire Sehnab



I think he looks like Sehnab with Carina's legs and colouring.
