What QH type is he?

So here is my horse as a two year old. He is three in May. I was told that he looks like he has weak fetlocks and a deep girth. I think the deep girth is just because he hasn't finished growing and filling out all the way. What do you think? Also based on these does he look like the more racey type of QH? I think he does, but I'd love to hear your opinions.

By the way I'm new here and you can just call me Megz.





This one he's getting his winter coat, thats why he's so much darker.

Hes lovely!! Very qh!!!
I cant see that he has weak fetlocks but hard to tell from pic and i would say that a deep girth is a good thing! And its not overly deep as far as i can see- hes stunnin'......bet you cant wait to get on him now.

Oh im sorry, he is broken already! hehe silly me! Oh no nothing worse than getting drenched on a ride!

Yeh teaching babies to jump is very entertaining! Depending on what their interpretation of 'jumping' is!
Flos is very graceful where as tenny is one of those prepare to take off jobbies! lol

Yeah, I've seen him jump over a giant pile of sawdust last summer, and I was like WHOA! Since then I've been excited to to teach him to jump.

Most of the riding I've been doing with him is pretty easy going, slow-ish trail rides. We have a good gallop every now and then, if there's a nice spot. He's very fast!

Does he look 'downhill' at all to you? I've also been told that by people.

He is slightly downhill but then i wouldnt worry as he is only rising 3. My mare didnt level up until she had turned 5, and as for my 3 yr old- well he changes shape on a weekly basis!

He will always have a large arse though.....hehe....thats the qh but i should imagine he will level up nicely!

hes lovely!!!

Yeah, he definetley is growing a quarter horse bum.

Heres two more pics from yesterday. Excuse his tail, I braided it and put it up like that so he wouldn't get it all muddy. I think he knew that he looked like a dork.

My little sister was taking the pictures so I didn't get very many good ones.
