Jake's put on some weight ! Critique?
Jake's been at my grandparents, hes gained the weight i hoped he would!
Now that hes got a few pounds on him could I get a confo critique?
We did just get him back a few days ago so I dont have the best pics, so I will add a few from when he was staying at my grandparents so dont say anything about the weight he's fat now (: lol
Thanks! He's a 16hh 11 y/o OTTB
First couple pics were taken today , the rest are older. Sorry, I dont have a decent rear pic...
Thank you guys (:
I am going to be honest when I say I don't think he looks fat enough... He could easily put on some more weight without being truly fat.
Anyhow, I think he has a slight sway back, extremely high withers, maybe a tad bit butt high (cant really tell from the pictures) And he has some upright pasterns.
Hehe, I am not the best critiquer, so I stand corrected, but those are just the things I personally see.
Where about in Arkansas are you? I am from their also.
He doesn't have a sway back. It looks lik it as he has extremely high withers. Looks to be cowhocked in the back BUT that can be a good thing.
I think he has a nice healthy weight. Maybe a tiny bit sway backed, high withers and straight pasterns. He also has a very pretty face :)
The first three pictures are him now, the rest are older, I think he's at a pretty healthy weight considering how he looked when I got him but thanks for your opinion! I've heard about upright pasterns affect a horse? And then how can cowhocked be a good thing? Ive only heard bad things about it...
He may be a bit swaybacked, I honestly can't tell with the shark in on his back lol.
Thanks ! He gets that a lot! (:

How do upright pasterns affect a horse?*

there is a some info about it somewhere on this forum. Being cowhocked isn't a bad thing. Your horse isn't severly cow hocked so I doubt you will have any problems with soundness with him being like that. I honestly forgot why it can be a good thing....I think tinyliny knows....my horse is cowhocked and she can do lots of things and her stifle doesn't get sore and such.
About your horse's back.. and think it just needs more muscle.. a good topline. My horse was the same way and he has a huuuuge shark fin wither.
And now, for my favourite thread of all time: http://www.horseforum.com/horse-trai...es-back-72621/
Hello Withers! LoL
He's cute. And yes, he looks better then he did. I think now he just needs some muscle put on him and toned up a bit. Love his face!
