Critique Amigo please :)
 
Ok.. I've been afraid to do this.. But here goes!
Could you please critique Amigo for me?
He's a 15hh Quarter Horse/Paint gelding, just turned 6yrs old. Hopefully these pics will be good enough.

Paint Gelding
 
No critique here, but he sure is gourgeous! I love how "solid" he is in the body. My paint mare is really thick like that too. Love his coloring too. :D

hey thanks curly_horse_CMT! If we still had "barns" I'd go take a look at your mare

He's heaps cute.
Looks a bit downhill, slightly (tiny tiny) but roach backed, could also just be the picture.
Tail set way to high for my liking, he needs a lot more muscle, a bit toed out at the back, but can't really see very much.

I am not sure what his breeding is, but for his breed i'd love to see him more solid, he reminds me a bit of a tb i used to know =]

he's super cute =]

Aw, he is adorable. :D Love that coloring, & his eyes!
He does look a bit downhill, little butt-high, & could use a bit more muscle. He looks good!

I'm not familiar with the term 'roach backed'?

Hm..I thought he looked downhill. Maybe thats why his gait isn't as smooth as our other horse? I got on Rowdy just for a few minutes bareback and I could feel the difference.
We're working on getting some more muscle on him. I don't think he was worked much with his previous owner, so I'm trying to muscle him up! The nearby trails have some hills I'm hoping will help :)
I'm not so good at the critique thing so I always look at everyone elses horses in the critique section to get an idea haha Thanks ;)

definitely not roach backed.

His tail is set on a little high, his hip is a little small, and his feet need some attention. I love the shape and size of his head, though. Also love his color! :)

You should have seen his feet before! We've had the farrier come take a look and he said he has "surface cracks" and will be looking better in a few weeks. I've been giving him supplements and using Hooflex too. And on a random note, we just had him floated, and I guess he was overdue for that. Poor guy! He comes to his new home and gets all kinds of doctor's appointments haha
