Friesian Conformation
1 Attachment(s)
This is a potential buy for me. I'm just horse shopping. I was just curious though, is this Friesian gelding slightly back at the knee?

Looks like a little behind, but the rest of him looks pretty well put together.

Hard to say. A little long in the back.

I don't see anything particularly wrong with the knee, but there's not much substance in the shoulder

I wouldn't say back in the knee, Friesians do tend to stand a little under themselves in front, its not correct but something I have seen a bit with them and would say this fellow does.

I think he is lovely tho and could provide many years of sound fun :)

I think the biggest fault with that gelding is that I think she is a mare

Funny you say that Golden Horse, I thought the same thing but thought maybe he was just hiding it well :p

Handsome overall, but a bit longer in back, than I'd like to see. Possibly back at the knee, but I can't see that well from the picture. I do think he is more horse up-front, than in the rear.

Thanks everyone for the input! I was just curious. I've been emailing the owner but I have my doubts so its unlikely that I will buy him.
