Confo Crit for Rascal....finally some decent pics (I hope)
Rascal is a 7 year old TWH. He is my heart horse, so confo means nothing to me at this point. I am curious what everyone else sees.
starting from the head, it is very cute ;)
Neck is set rather high and his shoudler angle is a bit steeper than desirable, however not to an extreme degree.
Front legs look alright but he has long pasterns, which make him appear to be set back.
Good, short back
Hindquarters have a sharp slope to the croupe but otherwise well rounded.
A bit sickle-hocked in the back legs
I love his conformation in that last picture, lol.
There is something really off about his front right...
And his back end looks very unproportionate to his front end.
His color is lovely though!
The right front is the one that I posted the ugly cut of in the health thread. He isn't limping he just isn't standing square on it either. His rear is very undermuscled and odd because of the pelvic injury. He is my pasture puff and I love him though :)
Sorry about the rooster picture!! I couldn't figure out how to take it off without taking them all off. DH was there laughing like crazy because as you can see he rolled like an idiot while I was inside getting the camera. 2 hours of doctoring and grooming HA! DH thought it was hillarious of course. I can't seem to get clean pictures of him.
ETA: He also will NOT square up to save my life LOL. He sees the camera and sticks everything out in the wrong direction.
I know nothing about conformations but I love that he can change from an equine into a fowl. I do know a little about rosters as my grandfather raised them and the rooster has a nice confirmation with a nice deep chest and nice coloring :)
He and Rascal are mortal enemies btw. Cogburn eats Rascals food if he gets half a chance.
I wonder what the age cutoff is for people that have never heard of Rooster Cogburn...:rofl:
But I tell ya, he plays the part so well! Struts and swaggers at the same time. When I yelled Cogburn for the first time he stopped chasing the younger hen and wheeled round looking at me all squinty eyed. Gotta love a rooster with 'tude.
