Critique my horses' conformation, please :)
 
Hello everyone, I am new here. My name is Audrey and I have five horses. They're all Quarter Horse geldings. This is just one of my horses. I'll get pictures of the other four when I get the chance.
Thanks guys!

#1:
Name: Hub
Age: 22
Discipline: Team Roping (head horse)

His showmanship set I taught him in a day :)

& of course he moved his back leg. Oh well!
I am aware he's standing in a pile of poop, haha.

He looks like he toes out a little bit in the front and his pasterns are a bit upright. All in all, a very nice looking horse especially for his age. Nice broad chest and big butt. Pretty boy.

He looks great for 22. Toes out a bit, but overall hes' very nice looking.

He is NOT 22!! OMG! He looks wonderful.

No one believes me when I say he's 22. He's turning 23 this year. I have a 34 year old also.

He looks great! I like his build.

Front end:
*He seems a bit base narrow to me. See how his legs dont come quite straight out of his shoulders and are closer together rather than straight down from his chest?
*He also toes out. His toes are turned to face the outside rather than straight. He will wing his feet out.
*His pasterns seem to be too short and upright. They should be more sloping and of medium length.

Back end:
*He seems to be either post legged or camped out behind. His hocks and canons are straight in a line, causing stress and they seems to be a bit behind his rump.
*Again, short and upright pasterns... but hey, most horses always have some sort of pastern fault.

Body shot:
*Overall he seems to have a nice build. Especially for 22 :)
*He has nice defined withers and a muscular body.
*Good shoulder, but a tad ewe necked...so was my old pony.
*He stand under...but almost every single QH does that :P

He seems to be GREAT =) for 22! I think hes VERY cute and has a very nice little body. The things I posted above were just for critique sake. Hardly any of the faults will/have affected him. Seems to be a lovely sweet boy.
Thanks for letting us look at his conformation!

You are doing great job with horse maintenance. Those ages and look are very impressive!

Agreed.
His front feet look long to me as well.
Great looking horse though!
