What do you think of my horse?



He's a 12 year old Tennessee Walking Horse. I know he's underweight in this particular picture, please understand that he is a hard keeper and is sometimes up and down in weight. I know he has lack of muscle here and it's because he was on a 4 month hiatus from a minor hoof injury. If you could look past those 2 things that would be great.
Thanks!

Hmm sorry I know absolutely nothing about gaited horses, but he has a really sweet looking face, I bet he has a teddy bear personality doesn't he?

I've never even seen a gaited horse in real life, so I'm the last person to say anything. Looks like a sweet horse though

Looks like he has a decent rear end. Shoulder looks a little bit funky-- maybe too straight? I'm bad with shoulders. His pasterns are good. I usually like a little bit more slope, but that's just me. He's parked out so it's hard to really tell, but it looks like he has a nice short back-- hunter's bump?

Better built than some of the freaks I ride. ;D

Is he a Generator heavy horse? I've noticed that they can be harder keepers.

He doesn't have any Generator in him. He's sired by Mr. Ebony's Charmer and has a lot of Sun's Delight and Midnight Sun.

Nice to hear from someone who can judge gaited horses. :) People on yahoo answers says he has horrible conformation.

Naww. He's just parked out, which is TOUGH to tell confo. Like, I'd like to see if he was cowhocked, sickle hocked, etc. as all those can impact gait.
