    Weight and conformation critique

    Another update on my boy Shea. He was moved 3 weeks ago to a new agistment with lots of grass and is back up to a decent weight, I think. I would still like to see a few more kgs on him though.
    Confo points that I notice are - long/straight back, goose rump, slightly downhill, short/steep croup(?), and he needs alot of muscle in his hindquarters and neck, but we're working on that
    Any other faults/good points that anyone can tell me, and how they would affect us would be apreciated. Thanks!
    I will get some front and behind shots soon!!!

    Oh, and he's a 7y/o, 16hh TB gelding.

    About 2-3 months ago:

    About 6 weeks ago:

    And 2 days ago:
    (sorry that the photos are really dark, it was dusk and a cloudy day to boot, and his feet aren't as tiny as they look I swear, lol, will get better pictures!)

    And one with decent lighting, although he's standing on a slight incline. That's my mum btw, im the one in the previous photos.

    Sorry to double post, but I forgot to add, what's everyone's opinion on his shoulder? Confo-wise - straight, nice slope, average...etc

    He looks great!
    For his shoulders, they just look big...but aren't TBs known to have big shoulders?

    For muscles, he needs a topline and some on his hind-quarters, but I think he's looking great!!!!

    Still has a good bit to gain - muscle is needed on the neck, topline and hindquarters - - he looks good enough now to start doing some light work

    Good job and keep up the good work!

    I think he's rather lovely... with more weight and a topline he's going to look even better!

    Steep croup - - almost goose rumped.

    Looks to have good bone and a good shoulder
