Not really the best shot, but in my (no-critique-experience) he looks well put together and sturdy.
I am not a palomino fan, but I am liking his dapples and I LOVE his head/face. He seems. . .noble.

Good luck with him!

Thank you Thyme for your responds. I know that the picture is not that great. It was the best view that I had. I discovered there is a talent to taking good horse pictures. I read over how to take good confromation pictures but feel it is a challenge for me. They weather is really cold, rainy and muddy here. It will be awhile before I could get any good pictures. But I still would like people to try to critique him anyway (please).

(Just starting out critiquing; anyone can correct me if I'm wrong)
He seems a bit short backed but it could just be the angle; his shoulder is rather straight; his neck could tie in better to his shoulder; his neck & head are gorgeous!; and love his dapples! I've always wanted a dapple palomino.

It's something you need almost like air or water. ♥

From the angle I will guess his back is long.. not short. He appears back at the knee and appears to toe out in front. His neck and shoulder are typical for the breed. He appears to have a nice low hock with some substance in the hock (often lacking in the breed). From the look of this horse I am unsure if he is cut (gelded). If he is not, from this photo I would make an appointment with his vet to do so! (That is how important it is to present good photos for a critique).

Better photos are extremely important. This is not a good shot at all.. you need to remember you are taking a 3 dimensional object and putting it on a 2 dimensional medium.

I like his color and dapples.

Guess I'm used to really long backed horses so his just looks small compared to them. LOL.

Part of what is making you think he is shorter backed is the angle. Hence why this isn't a picture that a horse should be critiqued off of.

We could reall use some more pictures, BUT, he looks solid. For any non-TWH people, they have these "rubber legs." That means that they sometimes stand with their back legs toed out, but they really aren't toed out. TWH's can even cross one hock over the other--quite a sight if you aren't expecting it!
Nice horse.

Yes, I must agree with the quality of the photo. If you want us to give our true opinion of the horse, we would need to see him in his most suitable angle, which this isn't.
But anyways, maybe this is just the angle, but I was thinking that the croup was quite high for the breed. I also agree with the back looking short. But other than that, which I can't really say is a sure thing or not because of the photo, I'd say you have yourself one gorgeous horse!! His legs and neck are just wonderful, even if he is standing kinda funny!! Ha!

Don't flatter yourself, cowboy, I was looking at your horse
