Sonny again (sick of him yet)...recent

Okay I took these pictures Thursday, and would love a full body critique, as well as muscle and movement (to see if anything has changed and whether it's for good or for bad)
Be honest as possible....I ain't going to get offended...even if everyone says he can only be a pasture pet, he's still mine forever.

*Notes: I know he still needs ALOT more muscle on his neck...we are working on that but I'm taking it slow.

? How does his topline look from before?


(Also I uploaded a cute picture of him also....because I thought it was addddorable!!)

Okay now for videos of movement critique. These were taken sometime last month...need to get really recent ones.
YouTube - Bareback and bridleless 1
YouTube - Bareback and bridleless 2
(please no criqitue on my riding!!)

Thanks!

EDIT: Also wanted to say that he was wet in the pictures below lol...hence the darker spots on his coat

Toed out in back, the muscle in his back which you mention, he seems a bit worm bellied to. Not sure if it's because he's wet or what.

What do you mean by worm bellied? What are you seeing that makes it look like that?

1-2 weeks ago....the BO takes care of it now. I highly doubt she would skip a worming...besides I saw all the worming tubes she had before she "wormed" the horses, and they are gone now....so either she actually did it, or threw them away lol

FGR, What's the difference between hay bellied and worm bellied? He gets unlimited hay at the new barn plus any grass that is left in the pasture so could it just be that he's fat?

Sonny, I don't think he is worm bellied but a stool sample will confirm it. He does turn out his back toes somewhat and has a Roman nose but overall I like him.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Yeah I LOVE Roman noses....all 3 horses that I fell desperately in love with had Roman noses.
The first was a Paint mare that I was going to buy, but she failed the vet test
the Second was a Spotted Saddle Horse, but I wanted a bigger horse
and the third if SONNY

Yeah I'm going to have a stool sample set in on Monday since he's getting his fall shots then.

What exactly is a Roman nose though? I mean I know how to tell that a horse has it, but what exactly is different in the face/nose area that makes a horse have it?
