Welcome to the forum, Spots. Donald is gorgeous. Sorry you guys are facing winter down-under; spring is kicking off to a good start here in Kentucky, and the horses are running at Keeneland.

Your gelding has a beautiful head, which connects well at the poll. Lovely neck. He seems to stand taller in back than front, but that's just a growing spurt issue and he will balance out. His legs appear well balanced.

He's like my guy, Hi-Grey, and seems to love his groceries. No worries there for me as I like my horses to have a little extra weight on them especially heading into winter.

Thanks for sharing your photos.

Pretty head. Nice width between the eyes.

Hey Boots,
So are wider set eyes a good thing? My horse, Max, has a much wider forehead than our other horses, but I didn't know if that was good or not. Some have told me he just has a "freakishly large head!"

It's a wives tale that the wider the the horse between the eyes - more room for the brain. Not too sure about that. [confused2
Personally, I just like the looks of it.

Thanks for the input his head is actually very nice and yes he is going thru a growth spurt at present. He does like his food no problems there at all. I am interested how he will look when hes started to get some muscle etc. i too have heard that saying the wider the head the bigger the brain never really took much notice of itbut perhaps its correct that would make me Very Clever Hahaha

You do have a very nice baby. I think she will mature into a very nice horse. You obviously have a good relationship with her that will be very useful in the training yet too come.

As for smart and width of forehead it might be true but I don't really know about the "height" of forehead as a contributorSmile

He definately appears bigger than my baby does at 21 months, but she wasn't being fed well until I bought her, and she has TB in her, which leads me to believe she may mature slower than others. But I can say this: he's beautiful!
