Critique my 5yo gelding?
I bought a new horse about two months ago, he is lovely and quiet, very sensible. I think he could set his hoof to anything. Question is, will he cope with everything?

I know none of these pics are perfect conformation shots but hopefully they are enough.

I think it's hard to judge a horse by pictures. I'd have to see him to make a better judgment of him. But he has a nice coloring :) Looks good.

What do you mean by "will he cope with everything"? Is there's a particular discipline you are looking to do with him?

From what I can tell he looks like a nice horse.
Possibly looks like he could be slightly sickle hocked in the second picture, but that could be the angle.
With better pictures you will get more honest replies from more people.

Sorry, more specifically low level eventing, and endurance. He is a standardbred (pacer) but doesn't seem to naturally pace.
I'll try and get some better photos tomorrow, weather permitting.

Surely you have some better photos now Myyky?

Thanks for bumping this RedTree! I do have better pics (I think)

Front on

Standing more camped out in front and behind than usual


Hopefully these are a bit better? I forgot to ever take proper ones

Anyone? :)

He is a nice horse. I'm not the best but I will give it a shot. He does looked camped out in front but I don't think he really is, just the way he happened to be standing when the photo was shot. You can see in the 3rd pic he has his front legs under him better. He looks a little long in the back but not bad, and there appears to be a hump on his loin? Roach back or weak loin? He is a little sickle hocked, but very slight. From the first pic of the front shot he looks to be cow hocked or toed out in back. Anyone correct me if I'm wrong on anything.
