Please tell me what you think of my new boy. He is 5 years old, 15.2 hh, and half Arabian. I'm really working him to get up his muscle tone because he hasn't been ridden for at least six months... so give me some of your views please and thank you :)








He loves to play in the mud lol :) and :(

Im not really good at crit. but I think your horse needs a new farrier, or maybe get his feet done. His toes are really long in the front and he barely has a heal. Beautiful Mane though!!! I love paints!

He looks bum high, sickle hocked, mayyybe a little ewe necked, needs a lot of topline work and a bit of muscle. He has a nice flatter shoulder, I bet he is a nice mover. Nice clean, straight front legs. He has a long coupling and a short rump. He is a handsome devil, I think I am in loov!

I also agree about his feet though, those need to be worked on before you ride him anymore, but they do not look too bad, with a good trim they should be just fine.

Yeah, his feet are pretty bad. He's basicaly been a pasture ornament for the past 6 months so they were not really paying attention to them. I will work on his muscling a lot, too. He will look so good by the end of summer :) And yes, his canter is really fun. He's also REALLY fast. Maybe the fastest horse I've ever ridden and that was just at a spook with the little muscling he does have!

Thanks for all the compliments as well! His mane is what drew me to him at first, too :) But it's tough because he loves to roll in the mud. I end up using awhole bottle of show-sheen/ detangler every two weeks!

Oh.my.god. WHAT A CUTIE!!! I'll leave the critique to the more experienced posters, but I want to steal your horse!!! I love his sweet little Arab face and delicate build (and of course, the mane!!), but with some muscling he looks like he could be a nicely built, sturdy horse! He's definitely going to catch the judge's eye in any show!

Wow, I really like him :D What a delicate face. I LOVE the mane and the coloring. He looks exactly like my sister's Pinto cross, except that Scout has a much heavier looking head :p

Other than muscling, I can't see anything else wrong with him.

He is soooo gorgeous by the way! I think I might also steal him! :grin:

***updated pictures***

These two pictures of him have a bit more muscle and shows that his feet were done :) The grey filly is by the same sire as my boy. I think she is gorgeous lol.

Thanks :) His mane is gorgeous (It's what drew me to him in the first place), but it takes a lot of work lol :)
