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 hes 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.
