Sorry about all the Rodeo nonsense lately....I do have a question about his back though. I started noticing the other day.
Does he seem to have a long, or even "roachy" looking back to you? It may just be me....let me know what you see as far as his back goes.
Hi there!! How old is he? He looks high in the butt, but if he's younger, could be he is still growing. His back doesn't look too long to me, I think it looks strange because his butt is so high. What do you intend to do with him? His pasterns are on the longer side also.
That is one crazy back sock! Love it!
he doesnt' look roach backed at all. He is really downhill now, but should grow out of it, no? At least some. He's muscling up nicely.
HOw old now?
I agree, I don't see a roach at all. His back seems like it might be a touch long, but then again, that could be the wonky growth stage he's going through right now LOL. Give him until he's at least 2 before you start worrying too much about his back being long, you won't really be able to get a good idea until he's pretty close to grown.
I think he looks fine, how old is he????
He looks 2 at most, especially with his head seeming so large
and his neck so thin. His neck looks great for balance if he grows into it!
On the dead on pict he has a better ratio, the other photos give him
a tall rear. He just looks young to me!
I believe Rodeo is 18 months old now.
@ csimkunas6- Trust me...when they're butt-high like that, they look all sorts of wonky. Aires was extremely butt-high when I bought him. Now that he's leveled out, he looks more like a horse and less like a freak of nature. :-P I don't see any roaching in Rodeo's back, but I see where you might think that.
Thanks for the reply!!!
He sure is going through a wonky phase, isn't he? Don't worry so much, I have a little guy that will be 2 1/2 in November and I got him when he was 18 months. You should see how wonky he looked then (GIANT head, tiny little neck, butt high, etc) and see how he looks now. It's a complete 180! He actually looks like a horse now! So he'll grow into himself, and then you'll look back at these pictures and be say "I was so worried he's end up all gangly, but look at him now"!
