    Conformation help for a possible buy

    I looked at a horse today and liked him, but he's quite underweight and I'm having difficult judging his conformation.

    I don't want to post his picture on a public forum, as he is not mine, but would anyone be open to letting me message them with a link to the pics, and could give me a bit of advice?

    As I said, he's is quite skinny. The owner has only had him for two months, and apparently he has put on a fair amount of weight over time, rain scald is almost gone etc. I think she's telling the truth as all her horses besides him were in excellent condition, and while he is thin, he is obviously being brushed regularly and is shiny. So I want to ask...

    Is his conformation okay (or have potential to be okay once he puts on weight)?
    If I work on his topline will his back fill in better?
    Also, does he look his age (14)? I'm a bit worried he's older than she claims.

    I would really appreciate this.

    I'm happy to have a look. What breed is he and what do you want to do with him?
