AQHA Stallion
This is Buck, our QH stallion. My mom thought he was good enough to keep a stud and use to breed our mares but I was wondering what faults and good things does he have? Also if it makes any difference he is out of Golden Oak Holiday I believe, which was a racing QH. I know its not from the right side but these are the best I could find.

Re: AQHA Stallion

Hey I'm not sure how accurate this is, but I wanted to see how good I could do because I remember someone saying that someone else would draw skeletons over photos. Also I wanted to try one of my own horses out first before making others look bad! Also if its not completely terrible I wouldnt mind doing it for other photos.

Re: AQHA Stallion

CM! I am so proud of you for trying that daunting task! What I can say is that his stifle, it is the end of his femur, so his femur is going to go all the way to the edge of where the stifle is. Do you see the little bulge under your circle? that is the end of his femur, so his stifle is just a little lower. He is closer to the "triangle", I'd say. What you are looking for is the equivalent of his knee cap in a human. In the shoulder, the end or lower side of his scapula is lower....Let me pull up something I may be able to post.

This horse's gaskin and femur? Close to equal. Quite a unusual from what I read and good. His shoulder could be a little more open, cannons nicely short in comparison to the forearm, close to 1:2. He is long in the front right toe. Coupling could be better, but tight loin, I think....

Re: AQHA Stallion

Heck with it, I'm going to dot him and line him . brb

OH...now I see why you put his stifle there. It is hard to see. Hmmm. Usually, that is where the groin area is, but JUST inbetween that and the next bump, is the joint. Right where the dot should be.

Re: AQHA Stallion

I'll work on the skeleton drawing some, I have some free time right now. I know the basic skeleton shape since I draw some but its harder to draw the actual bones.
Also I'm finding myself puzzled by some of these terms, I think maby a sticky with a horse labeled with the different parts might be helpful for us less knowledgeable people. Anyway, just an idea.

Edit:
I see where his stifle should be now, a little lower than where I placed it.
Is this any better?

Re: AQHA Stallion

Now, this is where *I* see these things on his hind end....Look up an anatomy diagram and see if you agree or not....

Re: AQHA Stallion

Ah yes the lower bump under the area which is called the groin. First bump after it? I say it's the patella. Second? Tibia end? so right in between the two? Should be the joint, yes?

Re: AQHA Stallion

This *should* be more accurate, what do you think?
Also I've never hated JPEG more than now.

Re: AQHA Stallion

Boy. His shoulder is hard in that pic eh? I thought you wrong, but to look at the pic, I too see it somewhere in your area. Is he standing downhill?

Re: AQHA Stallion

I think so. Does it look the same as in the first picture?
