➞ This roan gelding has the best overall balance of the three geldings, and he’s structurally correct. His head is the most refined of the three, with kind eyes and well-set ears. His neck, though it could be trimmer through the throatlatch and cleaner over the topline, ties in high to his chest and is nicely shaped, being longer on top than on bottom.
His back could be a bit shorter, but his topline is smooth, level, and strong. He shows strength through the loin, enabling him to transmit power from his hind end. His withers could be more defined, but he has good slope to his shoulder and a matching good slope to his croup. His volume and definition of muscling matches in his front end and hind end.
He’s structurally very correct, with his knees and hocks level. He has an excellent hock angle, with a plumb line straight down his hind cannon bones to the ground. His front legs have excellent forearm muscling, his knees are straight, and his pasterns have good length and slope.
