Registration Photos & Conformation Critique

Are these photos adequate for APHA registration photos. (need front, back, and both sides to go in with papers). If they won't cut it, I will take new ones - it is just hard getting the baby stand still for any length of time!! :)

This is our colt Blizzard - reg. Name will be DCF Perfect Blizzard

I know it is hard to critique foals, but any major faults stand out on him. We will be gelding him, but I would still love feedback on our newest family member. :) He is just now 2 months.

I would say that those pictures will do just fine. He's looking really good!

I don't see anything major that stands out. I love his face!

What a cutie! Are you sure you can have shadows in the photo? I didn't think you were allowed. Gorgeous foal :)

I really don't know, that is why I was hoping someone else would know better than me. So...wait for a cloudy day?

I think shadows are allowed, but they actually suggest you send a bunch and they will pick the best ones.

I'm sure you've already looked at these, but you might want to look at the pictures again. Your rear and front shots could possible be less angled.

She is right. Take a few more of extras and let them choose. On the site which I believe was posted already it will tell you exactly what it is you need :)
