My Arabians Conformation

I've been told by several people that my Arabians conformation is HORRIBLE. I admit its not the best, but its not horrible... right? Please give me your honest opinion, I wont be offended. I'll get some better pictures up soon.

If your talking about the flat croup thing thats common in Arabians. Its found in halter bred arabs... I don't really like it...

I think he is moving his tail in the picture. Makes it look worse than what it is. I think he is very pretty in the first pic, btw. : )

100% Anti-Slaughter and PROUD of it!

A flat croup is fairly common, but not a flat butt...his butt appears straight up and down in that second pic, which is likely what barrelracingarabian was referring to. Maybe it's the pic - do you have others? I would hate to see him judged on the basis of a bad picture...
