would someone like critique rocky for me as im no good at this thing, he's an appaloosa x TB he's roughly 16'1 or 16'2 (we've still never measured him) and he's 5 years old.
i know he's not perfect thats for definite. i know he's got really soft feet, but we have cubes to put in his feed that are supposed to help harden them and also i think he has a kinda big head in comparison to his body.


^this was taken last year after the ride-outs

I personally like him, and he's just fine for what you do with him. I'd like to see more muscle, especially over his topline and maybe more weight. I like his condition in the first picture. But the others are winter woolly mammoth pictures, so it's understandable that he looks a bit scragglier. :]

He looks like a sweet guy and I'd like having a horse like him in my barn.

with it coming in to summer he will be getting more exercise and longer rides to get him in shape for the ride outs this year :)

and i just notice in the last picture you can see a load of his coat on the ground and he was still fuzzy after it xD

Honestly, its hard for me to critique him becuase when I look at your photos I can't get past his weight; or lack there of.
He looks pretty thin, I think he would look worlds better if he were in better condition and had more meat on his bones.

rocky's always been pretty skinny, but this winter we've had a bit more problem buying in our round bales because all the places we tried were keeping what they had . and we had a lot more animals to feed this year so our supply went down quicker than expected. but he'll gain more weight (i doubt it'll be much though) once the grass starts growing he's also due his wormer sometime next month.
