Structure?

    I noticed you guys paid a lot of attention to structure on a seperate thread, I didn't want to hijack it, so I figured I'd ask how Axle's structure looked here. He's around 16 months, 25 inches tall, 72 lbs. sorry if the pics are a bit blurry, he's a ball of energy and hard to keep him still.

    Haha, I'm surprised he actually tucked em away for the inside shots!

    from what I can see, he seems to have pretty good elbows (they are tucked in and not jutting out) he looks like he's a bit weak pasterns, pretty good angulation of the knee but possibly short in the shoulder and pretty good topline. However, like Kady said-it can be difficult to tell unless its a very straight side and front shot- you can see in the first picture, the way he is standing makes his topline a lil roached-however I can tell his back legs are a little too far forward causing that. also his pasterns look kind of weak-but, again I could be wrong due to angle, they may be perfect.

    pastern2.jpg A is a good strong pastern, and C is a weak one-see how it slouches?

    Its hard to stack them, especially in the beginning. A lot of people bait them. Whatever works :-)

    sorry to jump in with a question but joker seems to have a roach back when he is relaxed but as soon as something catches his attention his back straitens out and has an even slope from shoulders to haunches...is this normal? or would he still be concidered roach backed? i can try and get pics and start my own thread on it if needed.
    and axle is looking great :)

    Well there's the thing, I never have a need to stack him, he's not a show dog by any means. The closest we may come is weight pull, and he understands that.

    My evaluation would still be the same except I think he is a bit over-angulated in the knees.

    Yeah I hear ya..mine obviously won't do coonformation but I try to stack them some just because I want them to somewhat know how to because its great for picture taking..don't have to be perfect :-)

    i couldnt tell ya, but is love to see more Joker! Thanks :)

    I've been looking around at conformation stuff for AB's, it seems like if he weighed a little more (3 lbs) and had balls and better pasterns, he'd do pretty well. Thanks for the evaluation! :)
