Critique and a color question!

Wondering if anyone would be willing to critique Cosmo (half Paint/ half Knucklehead). Currently he's my lease, but if everything goes well I will probably be buying him in January! So obviously I'm a little biased and would like to know any and every flaw :P

He also has a different colored spot on his hind leg. A silly question, but I'm curious to know if it has a specific name, or what causes a marking like that? (Sabino?)

Thanks for looking! :)

The pictures arnet the best for Confo critique. they need to be a bit larger and have him squared up better. However, I can see right away that he is well built. He has good porportions, a strong, though slightly upright, shoulder. Good haunches and hocks and good bone. He looks like the kind of horse that shoudl stay sound a long time. He is a keeper!

Not a bad looking boy at all, from the pics. Not sure, but his head might be a little large. We constantly see roan spots like that, on our Tobiano Gypsy Horses. Most of them also contain most probably, one type of Sabino or another, plus Splash. Your boy looks to contain much the same. Have you pics of his other side and front and back?

Thank you both!
I'll try and get some better photos tomorrow with more angles. That's interesting with the roan spots, it's the first time I've seen a marking like that in person, I thought it was pretty neat! Haha. I'll be sure to get some pictures of the other side as well :)

this horse has nice bone, nice set to his shoulder and is good all the way around. He fits together and is balanced. I wish his peak of croup were a bit further forward. His shoulder is a bit upright but the angle at point of shoulder is open, which is very good. He is a bit straight thru the hocks and stifle.

Nice horse.
