Critique my new boy?

I just bought this 3 year old quarter horse. How do you think he will perform as a hunter or all around horse?

I'm rubbish at conformation but I think he's stunning!

Welcome. I suspect you must change your username now, eh?

While I know little about GHs, your boy appears very different, from those I am used to seeing. Maybe it is because we see so many who are overbuilt and muscled with sagging bums.

What a handsome youngster and in lovely condition. I would probably like to see a little meat in his neck (which will possibly come with age) and wonder if his pasterns might be a shade too long. I like his head and the fact his ears are always forward and alert.

I would like to see this boy in a couple of years. Definitely craves an English saddle and tack.

QH? looks like he's half Thoroughbred to me. He is really gorgeous. Don't you call that colorations "Rose gray"? truly lovely.

stunning. lovely colour, and he's standing up really nicely. nice head on him too. i agree with lizzie, his neck could be a bit thicker, but that may come with age. a gorgeous horse! :)

I'm not a pro when it comes to conformation, but I know a really good horse when I see one - and he's definitely among the good ones. Congrats, he's looking great!

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

He looks a bit Appendix QH.. very much a nice TB shoulder (for hunters this is great). The only things I can see is he appears a bit back at the knee (not good for jumping) and he seems a bit straight through his hocks. Nice bay greying out.
