    The worst thing I see is the horse appears sway back. We'd need ebtter photos to critique more effectively

    I agree Nd, it sounds like the OP has her settings set as private, so the mods can see them but no one else can. The link that was posted took me to a blanket page also.

    Fixed the issue...must have marked the album private when I uploaded the pics...

    I know they are not much to work off of. I will have to get some better ones in the morning of him squared up....Rained here all day and was super foggy so no good for taking pics.

    I do see that he is swayback in the pics. Does not appear that bad in person and I think the angel of the pic is not helping much...He seems to have a really poor topline, Im hoping losing a little weight (he really is quite tubby in person, hopefully I will be able to better capture that tomorrow) and exercise will help some....

    Bad things: He's kinda built downhill, has shortish pasterns, a really upright shoulder that usually means choppy gaits, smallish hindquarters, a thick throatlatch, and a thick neck.
    Good things: He's just generally really cute ;), he has a kind eye, a good looking and nice sized head, nice deep chest, and nice nice nice sturdy-looking legs! ;)
    I like him!

    I can see them x

    I will take more pics this morning when I go feed and have them up by noon or so...

    I know he is not the most perfect conformation wise but I think he is adorable....He actually has a pretty smooth trot, nicer then my QH by far....more pics to follow..

    And yes his neck is super thick! Im thinking partially due to his weight issues....

    Long backed with a weak loin causing a sway in his back is the outstanding fault. He might also be a bit straight in the hind leg. He is going to be difficult to collect and get working off his hind quarters.

    Hard to tell anything else because these pictures are not conformation images.

    BTW I don't know about the pictures and seeing them (or not) but for a long time I could not get this forum to load. At. All. It would come up and freeze my 'puter....

    Works now and for the last two days..

    I like the looks of him, seems to be healthy, alert and has nice bone. As you said, you are thinking of selling him. I would focus on getting him to do a few things that buyers are looking for..put him into some training for roll backs, lead changes, collection etc... backing up...standing for mounting....then youwill have better chances of him selling quickly. I find it hard to sell if I hold on too long, so work quick and you wont end up falling in love
