Better pictures would help out a lot! Some are blurry or distracting, check out the link to the thread it helps you with what pictures you should take. The better the pictures the more critique you will get. (: I personally cannot tell much from what you posted.

What I see is not too bad. Horse had a great rear end (good engine!) and a very strong coupling. Shoulder seems steepish and I suspect the horse is tied in at the knee (but will wait for better photos to say for sure).

One thing for sure, this horse is built VERY downhill.

Looking 4ward to better photos!

I just looked at his pedigree.. LOTS of Halter horse in there...

At three I doubt it. This breed tends to mature younger than a warmblood and if you are uneven at 3 you are probably uneven for life. Especially since this horse appears to have been fed correctly (he is in very nice shape).

Not saying it "can't" happen. Just saying it probably won't.

Have you had him near cows at all?

Wondering if, with that down hill build, he might take and interest in cutting or working cattle.

I always like it when a horse bred for working cattle (the Quarter horse) actually shows interest and does want to work with them. It is like a Border collie taking an instinctive interest in sheep or a Setter taking an interest in birds... Love to see the genetics kick in.
