Critique my new boy!

According to the vet, he's about 6-8 years old. Breed is unknown, as he was found in a feedlot by his previous owner. Best guess is probably Paint x TB.

Once he gets delivered, I'll try to take some more pics from different angles.


Also: Paint/pinto people, educate me on pattern!

He has a nice shoulder, a little too long in the back but nothing terrible stands out to me.

He is a Tobiano, hard to tell without face markings but maybe splash or sabino as well?

All Paints have TB in them so that would be my guess as to breed...
As for confo, I think his shoulder is a bit steep
Nice depth through his girth
Neck is set high
Nice head
Nothing seriously off with his front legs
High in the wither just a touch
Back is borderline long
Nice hindquarters but could use muscling
Back legs look to be slightly camped out, but not severely

I wouldn't say he has a long back but a very small hind end that makes him look that way. He looks good in the front though.

His coupling is long and his peak of croup is set back too far and this impacts his entire hind end structure and placement, forcing his hind legs back too far.

BTW this is picking faults. He is really a nice horse and has pretty markings.. and you smiling with him shows real pride of ownership. Those things are beyond a single horse's conformation.
