Not bad, really. He looks to have nice legs; good & straight, especially the backs.
The issue appears in his back. It looks long and slightly swayed. Also a bit butt high. Neck is a little long, but he looks like a nice solid horse otherwise.

He's a bit sway backed and his back is on the long side, which may result in him having a shorter riding career than a horse his age with a stronger, shorter back. He's adorrable though! I love his color, markings and face. The brands kind of irk me though. It all looks like graffiti lol

lol. I don't like them either but good thing is that they wash right off. I painted them on when I got him back due to him being stolen when I first got him.

Both of you are very right on his back. I didn't even notice until it was pointed out here. Its amazing what an owner/buyer misses!

lilruffian: he is a bit high in his rear, you are very right.

anymore comments on him? I recently (yesterday evening) realized he's VERY protective of me, I posted that on another post if anyone would like to hear what happened :-)
