help with beginning of sketch (again...)

Started drawing another horse, please point out anything you think looks wrong, needs changing, anything :)
Here's a link to the reference picture because it's pretty big

I'm not very good with a full body

Also, I'm having a massive problem with the front left hoof, so am resorting to making the area "dusty" :P

To ride or not to ride? ... What a stupid question!!

One thing I would change.. Your horse is wider towards the flank area, he needs to be wider in his heart girth. Looks a little preggers:)

Ok, here goes.

The eye is not right. very hard to describe it, but the eye has to have more depth to it. It's like the orb of the eye is on the corner of the skull, so it has depth in more than one direction. I can't describe it in words, but look at the eye again.

the front right leg needs to be more straight down. The horse is bearing weight on this leg, so it mus be right under the center of gravity
