Yeah thats fine . Its more to compare what he looks like now and summer next year. Between the exercises and being out on the spring Grass and a growth spurt , I really think you will notice a big change between now and when summer arrives for you.

The slope your talking about Chanda would definitely be the reason for being so strong in the leg. Even if its not a huge angle , moving up and down it and also the balance at a stand still.

He looks much better in the second Picture. As mentioned earlier in the thread try taking him backwards over small cavalettis and if you have any hills , try taking him up and down them as they will help to strengthen his muscles.
Ok, so I would have suggested the opposite...  Forward over the cavaletti and backwards hillwork; although either probably accomplish similar results.   

I'm not too sure that hills are why my foals are so strong in the leg, we are on slope, everything is up and downhill; ok, so not steep, nor tall, but all a slope.

Have you got any recent full body pics of him?  If so could you post them.

Hopefully the droughts just about over for you. Where do you ship your cattle too? Is this something you need to have done by the time the snow starts to arrive ?
No, snow or not doesn't matter, they have sales year round, just that the majority of weaned calf sales are in the fall through winter.   We've put the calves on the truck and have a blizzard the next day.
Drought is predicted through the end of the year.  Sure hope it breaks, or we're screwed, the pastures are in rough shape, they really need a good snow cover this winter with a slow melt in the spring, along with some well times spring rains.
