Critique Four Month Old Colt.

I apologize in advance for him hanging out like that, I can't seem to get him when hes not... Ugh. Anyway, I also apologize for the front and back view being a bit off. He normally doesn't stand that still when I have the camera out so I was being fast. He turns four months old tomorrow on the eleventh. Just would like general critique, I know a lot of it, but I want to see what I'm missing. Thanks in advance.

OMG he's beautiful and he belongs in my Barn as a mini-Sky :lol: :P

He is a bit cow hocked and narrow in the front, his hind legs come pretty far under him, his hind end is high, but overall he is gorgeous and I really like him. Not sure if it is just the pics making his front legs look narrow but that would be his biggest flaw if truly hat narrow.
You can send him to my barn anytime though!

I noticed his back legs are pretty far under him. This was the first time he actually stood still. At first I was going to take a picture, his right hind leg was farther up, but then he put it back and stood square and I jumped on in. I might get some better pictures tomorrow if he cooperates, might get someone to go out and hold the lead on him. Normally he sees the camera and he wants to eat it...

I don't see cow hocked. I think his back legs look very nice actually from the behind angle. He is sickle hocked. But that could be an advantage depending on the discipline that you decide to put him in.

Overall, I think he's a nicely built little guy. That may be subject to change though as he grows. Of course, you already know that.

He's a tad butt high, but...He does seem to be growing pretty evenly. He has a nice shoulder, nice neck, pretty face. And he has a nice hind-end too. Croup is looking a tad steep.

Overall he's nicely balanced for a growing foal. I don't see the cow hocks, but there is a slight sickle hock with the way he's standing. From the front he seems to be a bit pigeon toed, but I suspect that may be the way that he is standing. He's got a very nice head and neck, and from the side his front legs look great! Super pretty baby! If you don't want him...I'll take him. :D

I think he's freakin' cute! He does kind of stand under himself, but for his age he looks well put together.
