Thank you. He's actually not down hill... topography is working against him. But he does have a bit ole head. I suppose that's the TB in him. lol

HMM, not trying to disagree or anything after all you do won him and see him on a daily basis, but I was going by comparing the proportions of the back legs to the proprotions of the front, not how high his rump looks. The rear legs are much longer than the fronts, more so than a more leveled out horse.It isn't too terribly bad by any means, but it is there IMO.

Either way, he is a beautiful boy!

He very well may be slightly down hill... Not enough to make any difference if so. I think one thing that doesnt help is that his rear end ties in higher than what I prefer...while he has a large set of shoulders. The proportions are confusing because he doesnt have a hind end to match the front end.
But hey, seeing him every day may work against my eye. lol Hence the Confo critique. lol

I'd prefer a larger hip on him, kind of looks like the front end stole all of the growing juice! But overall, a nice balanced boy who is perhaps a touch over at the knee.

LOL Growing juice! That's sums it up perfectly.
I guess the knee thing get passed me as well. He has a lot of scaring and thick tissue along the front of his legs from an injury prior to when I purchased him.
No biggy. He just looks like his legs went through a blender. lol

First glance: I love him! Very pleasing to the eye, very proportional, very cute!

Looks a touch downhill in the first pic, but in the second pic he looks fine so maybe it was just the angle. Could use some more muscling overall. But super cute, I'd take him!

Thank you. He's been VERY difficult to keep weight on so were happy he's not looking gaunt. He'll gain his muscle without a problem in the summer time.
Thanks!
