    TB gelding, confo critique.

    This is tribute my new horse, He's a 6 yo tb registered with the jockey club but never raced, He's 16.2 and super sweet and definitely lazy, might be due to his current condition though. He's kinda skinny, I've had him about a month and he's put on about 50 lbs. He was only 150$ along with 2 other horses, but I just bought tribute, had a vet check done and brought him home. He needs to be retrained, I'm so exited to start under-saddle work with him. He's been great on the ground, really learns fast and is so willing. Anyways let me know what you think! Sorry the pics are kinda dark

    I really hesitate to make any real confo critique because , as you said, the pictures are dark and blurry. I can see that he does need more weight and conditioning. Try to take some out in natural light. These "before" pictures will be invaluable to you as you transform him into a pumpkin. No , wait, I mean a prince!

    I agree, it is too difficult to see enough to make a good judgement. I'm not sure a fair opinion can be made due to his condition. His neck seems short and tied in lower than I personally like for jumping/dressage, but it is good for a running horse.

    Give him more groceries and repost updated photos then.

    I agree, he will and should change a lot in the next few months and he will carry himself better too! Congrats on your new horse! My horse was a lot shinnied than your tribute when I got him and he looked pathetic but now he looks like a complete different horse!

    I think he has a roached back.

    His back looks a little awkward, but I think that will even out with some more muscling through his topline. His legs are nice and clean. Little neck, but that can be built up with more conditioning...

    As has been said, with a little more conditioning and muscle through his topline, he'll really look nice.
