We have 5 paints at our small stable and all have the same trait incuding short backs. The pintos have backs of their like breeds.

You can't honestly judge conformation with horse in his winter woolies,it hides things, gives fullness to areas there isn't,makes them appear to have more bone than they do,makes head & necks look bigger,butts higher etc.
He is a young horse still growing you come back in a few months when he sheds & matures some more and you will have a better idea of his conformation..Overall from the pics posted I think he's pretty cute! besides being cowhocked don't see any big glaring faults.
My first thought though, when seeing horse was that it was a yearling based on look of maturity & the tail ,was he a late born foal?

No, his tail was touching the ground. Then the last owners put a baby in with him, and it chewed his tail off. So sad, I hope it grows back fast, he looks so weird with a short tail

Yes a lot has to do with his collection. Backing work helps. Also feeding him low to the grown I heard helps as well. I would advise you to wait to actually back him until age 3 at the youngest. He already has a weak top line so starting him young would only make things worse. If it was me I would wait till he was 4, but that's just me.

Some people call "backing" starting the horse under saddle/riding. I think it was used in that context earlier.

I mean the horse walking in reverse in the second sentence, in the forth sentence I mean actually getting on his back.
