Yes, they are a little long but their slope is nice so I wouldn't be too worried about it. Especially since your horse is still young and growing.

Yes, but as Allegro said, he is young and growing

horsecrazygirl13 12-02-2012 11:12 PM

He will be two in May. do you think he will change much?
how bad are they, from 1-10?

Long, but not bad. Leg angles don't really change.
Think he will be a right cute gelding.. :)

Thank you. but I wasnt asking about his leg angles. I was wondering if his legs would grow any longer/wider. His butt is higher than his withers-will his front legs grow longer?
Would this horse be able to do some light barrel racing and long, long trail rides? and perhaps some small jumps?

As far as his rump being higher than his withers, don't worry about it. He will change a lot before he is full grown.

Ok, so do his front legs grow longer?

ParaIndy 12-03-2012 05:22 PM

most likely.

horsecrazygirl13 12-03-2012 05:34 PM

Ok so will his pasterns get 'shorter'?
