So some of you may have seen my threads about looking for a horse.
Well i got one!!
He is a reg unraced OTTB
16.1hh, 3.5 years old.
He is a definitely "Mr. Personality"
and now: Pictures!!
So is that all around good or bad?He is cute, and sounds like he has a nice temperament.
Right now he is quite butt high, and I suspect he will not level out and will always be downhill. He has a bit of a convex head profile and his eyes are a bit small, but his face still definitely has a smoochability to it . Neck is a good length and with proper muscling will be quite a bit more attractive. His neck ties in well top and bottom and he has nice withers, though they are set quite far back. His shoulder is quite upright with low point of shoulder with a somewhat closed shoulder angle. Back is a good length, hip seems nicely shaped. Hind legs are a bit too long for his height and he is standing underneath himself in every photo, which might indicate some type of discomfort (or poor hoof trim). He stands base wide both front and back, which somehow seems at odds with his overall lanky build. I would like to see him with another 100 lbs and a chiropractic adjustment.
So is that all around good or bad?
Sorry im just trying to learn more about conformation and what is good or not.
okay thanks!Some good, some bad, like most horses.
Good - neck length and tie in, front legs look fairly clean, short back length, nice hip, pastern angles and length
Not so good- downhill, hind leg and the way he stands on them, upright shoulder and low point of shoulder
Overall he does not look extremely athletic, but as I said, I think he is sore, so some of his stance is likely caused by that.
