This is my purebred QH gelding, Dex. I got him in November 2011 so just before the first photo was taken. This is his transformation over the course of the 1 and a half I have had him Please judge the transformation in his muscle. Also please judge his conformation in the latest photo. Yes, he does have a very faint star on his hindquarters in the last photo, we did that when we shaved him in December and it has yet to shed out lol.
I’m mostly posting for Carol who saw the older photo a few months back. I’m wondering if there’s any clear improvement in his topline and how his conformation is doing now. I look at him every day so it’s hard to notice a difference. To me, his butt looks less pointy, and his haunches (specifically under his hip bone) look more filled out. He’s an eleven (yes eleven, even though he’s so dark) Oldenburg gelding names Obsidian. I know it’s hard to see his feet, they were loading a trailer for a show on the driveway and I couldn’t get in the middle of it.
This is my 9 year old thoroughbred mare.I just got her Sunday.She hasn’t been rode a whole lot and she is green.As you can see she needs more muscle.I have been lunging her and riding her and she keeps cross cantering.She isn’t lame.I am wondering how do I fix this?Do you think it is because she is green and she just hasn’t used those muscles in a while?Is this something I should worry about?Let me know.
