June Conformation

Since blogger decided to spare you my whining weekend update post by eating it.  Here is a hastily written conformation picture update post.  They aren't the greatest since he was extra wiggly.

The shoulders are starting to even out.

January is on the bottom.

His weight and his top line are looking much better.

His shoulders are improving (Jan on the bottom).

I still don't like how upside down his neck is but when he drops his head you can see where the muscles are starting to fill in.

I still need to get more lift to fill in the gap in front of the withers, but I don't think he has enough strength behind to really do that yet.

Overall, I am really happy with how he is looking and we have made some large strides in the right directions.  Hopefully he can keep it up and look like a real sport horse by the end of the year.


  1. boo to blogger eating posts! also i feel like that dip in front of the withers is the absolute hardest to fill in.... le sigh

    1. It is. I managed to start filling in Pongo's but Stinker is so uphill I haven't figured out how to even start riding him up. I think I am going to ignore it and continue to fixate on the bum and hope that as it strengthens I'll be able to figure out the rest.
