I'm not good at conformation but I've been trying to learn. (So if anyone wants to correct me feel free to).

Nice shoulder and he is very well proportioned.

A little crooked on the right front, could be how he is standing, a tad sickle hocked...? But like I said I don't know much : /

Front pasterns seem slightly upright and shoulder angle also, although this could be from standing in the soft sand. LOVE the picture taken from behind where it looks like he is wearing ear muffs cos of their colour, so cute.

So the general consensus is not bad? I'm not good at conf but I think overall he has a good appearance. Like I said Im not good at exact conf but I can usually look at a horse and know if there's something majorly wrong.

Also, the first pic is the most current. How do you all feel about his current weight? He is being shown this year as HUS, eng pleas, and h/j over fences.

Weight is good in my eyes, his neck is a little upside down so put some topline on him and that will look better.
He's a nice type.

Thanks Sarahver Ill work on that.
