Critique Specs please!
 
He's already mine, but I'm just wondering how his conformation is! I've never really looked at it, and when I look at him, I just don't see the flaws because he's my pony.. But I know he has some, and I'd like you to point them out! Any crits are welcome, long or short! :)
Do you think he'd do well at a local pony conformation/halter class?
He's a 12 year old POA gelding 13.3hh, if it makes a difference :)
I know they're at odd angles, but he wouldn't stand still. Hopefully they're critiquable!! :)
Thank you!http://i1230.photobucket.com/albums/...t/IMG_3990.jpg

Here's another one of him with tack on which may be unhelpful, but at least it's directly from the side.

As you know, the photos don't give the best view to critique conformation. But, the cuteness factor is HUGE! I rather like what I see in the last photo. He's a bit tubby. and the saddle looks a tad bit too far forward.
Is he part Appy? (I have a soft spot for Appys)

Well, maybe you don't see the flaws because there aren't a lot of them there. Very, very nice pony, and built like a bulldog...

Haha thank you! :)
:oops: I know, he's fat. He's always out to pasture so this time of year when the grass is good, they're all a bit on the chubby side.
The saddle often rides up because it's not a perfect fit for his body type. He needs semi QHB and the saddle I have now is full QHB... I'm saving up for a new saddle :).
He's a POA, so he is kind of appy-ish, except smaller! :-P

I'm not good with conformation, but he's nice looking.

Like others said, those pictures are really hard to judge but from what I can see, I agree with Face. Very nice looking little pony there.

Really the only thing that pops out at me is that he really needs a hoof trim in that first picture.
