    Critique on my boy?

    Ok, so I have a 3/4 TB, 1/4 Danish WB that I picked up last summer... he's rising 15, and I'm hoping to start showing him in some veteran classes this summer on top of the dressage/working hunter we do now. Some feedback on his conformation and how you think he looks for his age in prep for that would be very useful!

    One thing - I know he's a bit skinny atm, he's a poor doer and I'm struggling to keep weight on him through the winter despite ad lib haylage and loads of feed, so please don't go calling me cruel, I am trying to get the weight on!

    Otherwise please tell me what you think! I know these pics aren't the best for judging conformation, but any pics I take of him atm I feerrassed to show anyone as he is quite skinny... bring on the new grass!

    There really is no way of telling anything about his confirmation unless you get some standstill photos of him squared up from front/back/side. All around he looks well put together, yes he needs weight but he looks healthy. He has a nice coat, long legs, his hooves look to be in good shape, and he has a very kind eye. Gorgeous boy, congrats Hopefully we can see some better pics soon? God Bless.

    Ok, I can take some when I'm up today, but he is skinnier than this at the moment so be prepared... Thanks for the feedback so far!

    Don't worry, I am dealing with weight problems on my mare as well at this moment so I understand. I will check back later tonight :)

    Ok, so here are the proper photos... tail may possibly be hiding his hocks too much, didn't think about it until afterwards when I looked at the pic again... but anyway, much appreciated in advance!

    I'm not sure if I can tell from these photos, but his back seems to have a slight roach to it over the loin area? I'm not sure. His neck could do with more muscle build up on top too - get him doing some nice slow hill work.

    I'm not a great judge of conformation as far as picking things apart but I think with some weight on him he's going to be a good looking boy. I'd like to see more muscle on the top of his neck but overall he seems like a reasonably sturdy guy.

    Definitely needs more muscle on the neck, back, and hindquarters.
    + the weight.
    Very very handsome boy!
    What's with that lump on his back?
