Smile Critique Arabian Conformation

I would appreciate any critique.
First picture was taken in February of 2010 and the second was taken in May of 2010. (Isn't his tail growing fast!?)

Now, all that the judges in an arabian show would take note of, is that his fetlock is weird on the right front. That is due to a rotation of the coffin bone, and he was never lame, but we are trying to be careful with it, and get it back to normal.

So, I want to see what you have to say. Thanks!

Cute horse! You didn't give us much of a critique shot though.
Also, there's a section for critiques! ;)

Very nice looking gelding. Is he Polish?

He has a beautiful head and neck. Nice slope of the shoulder. Good back and croup. I cant see the rotation on the one but also is blocked so from what I can see has nice clean legs. His tail looks like it has been growing which is great. In the Arab world as you know the longer the better. Just watch out for thinning of the tail, in the second photo it looks thinner than the first (or maybe that's because of braiding, I don't know). He looks like a great little horse.

Yes, I was thinking polish too. Nice clean legs, pretty neck and small head. Good sloped shoulder and tail is coming along nicely too. Small pointed ears, and big bright eyes, that's one of the things I look for in an arabian. He sure is a pretty one!

Eliz- I know, I was more after arabian people, than just random people critiquing.. I know, I am going to get better shots next time I am out at the barn... haha.

Deerly- Thank you! I love every part of him

Azale- Yep! 100%, his sire is VF Premonition... Prem is a grandson of Bask ++++ (amount of pluses, I am unsure xD) The braiding did make it look thin.. And the first one I had just brushed it.. His tail used to drag 3.5 feet on the ground... Until an inexperienced stable hand left him with his blanket off, so he rubbed his whole tail off :/

Crimson- Thanks!

analeah- yep, he's my stubborn polish! Thank you! I am happy with how his tail is growing too :)
