Hey, I would like to get some Arabian critique... Thanks!!

gender - Gelding
height - 14.2hh
weight - around 800-900lbs
breed - Polish Arabian, single registered.
other - Large lungs, not fat.

The first was last week, the last two were last year, this time. He has lost weight since then, and I have nice pics of him perfectly square, but they are missing. Will post when i find them.:D

You need to let the tail grow alot and make the mane even.

he looks very very sturdy and sweet. maybe a little over in the knee and a short back?

I agree that he looks a smidge over at the knee in the first picture but I don't see it in the second picture so maybe he's not or it's not very bad...

Short backed is a good thing for Arabs. =)

Is his tail in a tailbag? I was like "whoa! where's his tail??" but then I looked more closely and maybe it's in a black bag?

I love him though. He looks really sturdy. I'm a fan of Polish Arabs. They look so useful.
My girl, Lacey, is Polish, at least on her dad's side. I don't know anything about her mom.

I'm really not a good critique-r so I'll leave the real critique to people who really know what they're talking about. =)

The only things that pop out at me are that he looks like he's got straighter pasterns than I would like to see on a horse, and he does look a bit butt high in one of the pics, but that could just be the angle. It looks like he's got decent bone density, and doesn't have those tiny toothpick legs that I'm seeing on so many of the arabians as well as thoroughbreds these days. He looks like a cutie.
