First I had to rotate the image because someone thought they could hide his downhill topline using photoshop. Nevermind that these people don’t ever bother to edit the feet so that the front hooves aren’t obviously higher than the hind hooves. Of course, they could just breed good horses, then they would never have to use photoshop again. Wow!
Anyway, if you think that this horse has a good butt, shoulder, and topline, you really need to take a good look at these lines that I drew because I think this is really the only way to get people to understand WHY these horses that they think are champions are actually very poorly bred. For a stock horse the ideal shoulder angle would be 45 degrees and the ideal hip angle would be 20 degrees, give or take of course. Compare that to the angles on this poor animal. This means that his movement will be very limited and his gait will be short and choppy. He’ll have to work much harder to move the same distance as a horse with angles that are closer to the ideal, and he’ll never have the same capabilities.
So no, he does not have a nice shoulder, topline, or butt. He needs to be gelded, ASAP.

    I’m sorry, but that just really is one fugly stud. There’s no way to be nice about it.
