➞ This gelding is the least balanced of the three. His topline appears weak, with his back dropping noticeably behind his prominent withers. As a performance horse, it’ll be difficult for him to lift and round his back. He also lacks overall muscle volume and definition.
His head is average, but I believe less Roman-nosed than it may appear, as the dark coloring at the top of his head gives a bit of an optical illusion. He has a kind eye and agreeable expression. He has a thick throatlatch and short neck, and though his neck ties into his chest fairly high, it doesn’t tie into his withers cleanly.
He has a short hip and steep croup, which won’t provide necessary power to drive forward, and that’s a major drawback for a performance horse. He has an acceptable angle to his hocks, but his front pasterns are too long, putting his front hoofs out in front of his cannon bones, which can lead to unsoundness over time.
