Just for fun I thought I would try to see what you all thought. He is a 17.1 hh TB gelding. I know these are not conformation shots just cute pics of him. Let me know what you think.

Looks like he has the typical TB feet! Whats his lines ?

Perhaps the picture forum if you aren't looking for a critique?

Looks like a sweet guy.

YES he does have TB feet!!! We are working on those lol. His sire is Uncle Abbie. He has seattle slew, mr.prospector, native dancer on his lines as well.

O I was looking for a critique I was just saying they arent the best shots to do that..... :)

He looks good!

Just out of curiosity, where in Texas are you located? I'm in Dallas. Always good to find horse people in your area =)

I am in N fort worth near Denton. Have you ever worked with an OTTB and have any suggestions?

You cant really judge comfo when the horse is in motion & side shots are good.
However, just going by what you've got, his front feet are quite close together & his backs wide apart.
His back is a little long & looks like he may be wither high, but i've found that to be quite common in OTTB's, especially the tall ones.
His neck looks a bit long due to a lack of muscling but i like his shoulder & butt from these pics.

Well I think he looks great from what I can see. His ears are so funny though! Probably from being so big they got really big too! But its cute. He looks really nice running.

Do they even make a Mr Prospector kid without a one white sock leg? It's so cute. I don't know about the other horses in his line as far as temperment, but the Mr. Prospector horses are the best in terms of work ethic and personality.
