The second photo does him NO justice. It accentuates his shallow shoulder and he is reaching away from his haunch. It makes his hind legs look like straight posts (the first photo shows this is not the case with him).
I know what I would love him for....a field hunter! He has great bone and is nice and solid. If he makes some height, I would love to hunt him sidesaddle. His neck and back would make him perfect aside.
I wish he were closer to NC.
