Conformation critique!
 
I thought I'd throw this out there for everyone. Thought it'd be a bit neat to show how he was as a foal and how he is now as a 3 year old. (I also have the judges comments of him for his inspection, so it should be interesting if those comments still hold :D )

So this was Costa at 3 months at his Oldenburg Verband inspection

And this is him now, 3 years later! (he's still growing a bit, and shot up another inch, so he isn't quite fully level yet)

Oh wow, I can't even critique. From what I can see, he has near impeccable conformation! He's BEAUTIFUL. With a bit more muscle work and topline he's going to be a stunner! Congrats!! :D

I like him a lot!
Its so cute when he was 3 months old, his legs weren't black, but as a 3 year old they are.

He has one awesome ground covering trot!

I honestly didn't know if he was going to be bay or chestnut! He stayed that way up until about 10-12 months and then started going darker.

Thank you! Hopefully he keeps it undersaddle :-P He gets started in March

thanks :) I think he's lovely too, and I'm hoping he lives up to his promise :)

its interesting that you say you think his neck ties in a bit low. when I look at him, I think that his neck is actually set a little higher than ideal

He's very nice. The shadows hide a lot of the lines though... do you have any pictures with more sun on the right side? :P
