3 year old critique

This is my 3 year old. He is 3/4 quarter horse and 1/4 percheron.

Welcome to the forum!

His pasterns and cannons are very light and too long. I don't like his pastern angle and it looks like his back left hoof might be clubbed? Hard to tell. Straight shoulder and posty legs in the back.

I love his color though and as a three year old, he might grow into himself a bit more. He's very level for a three year old which is nice.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

I don't think that is a very good picture of his legs, I don't have a recent one but here is one from the summer.

He's to light on bone short thick neck straight shoulder.
Post legged in hind legs his head is big and clunky looking.
Nice color and rest of body looks good. I prefer bigger boned legs.
