Bless you for giving him a home! How someone could send him to a kill pen is beyond me.
Yep he needs weight and muscle but you are doing good by him in that aspect. As for conformation, he's a little bit long in the loin that leads into a shallow hip, but muscle and weight can help the hip. He's slightly downhill, but DOES have a really nice hock set and his cannons are the same length all the way around...LOVE that! He has a wonderful deep heartgirth, he's not ewe necked...just had no topline muscle from his poll to his croup. I would like to see a better side shot with his head straight because his neck is still and unknown as to length and where it ties in on his chest. He REALLY has some great solid bone....LOVE that too, and the length and angle of his pasterns. He looks a little bit race bred but also some performance breeding...would LOVE to know what his bloodlines are!
Anyway, I think you have a keeper here!
