Critique 18 y/o QH

So this is Rusty, he is around 18 years old he could be a year or two older but probably no younger. I know he was some real conformation issues so please try to be nice to him!

His conditioning is fantastic for his age. The main "flaw" that he may have is that he appears to be pretty croup high and built downhill. His throatlach could also be a little more refined. Overall though, a very handsome guy. I like how sturdy his legs look.

He is 18.. and he is sound.. and you still use him...

Well.. that is all the conformation critique you need. He has good bone.. built a bit down hill.. but if he is still usin' at age 18 I have nothing to add. HE has said it all!

Ya I still ride him but he looks better than he feels. He has ringbone and white line's disease (but thankfully that's clearing up) and he's very stiff. Not a bad trail/ bareback horse though!

Don't get me wrong though: he stil has plenty of energy and life to him but he's just not the best mover.
