Critique my new QH Prince Bandit/Bandit!

This isn't the best picture, but I would like to know what you think of him so far. He still has weight to gain, because the seller had rescued him from a kill pen. Any info would be great thank you so much!!

Congrats on rescuing him!

Nice shoulder, nice front legs. His front hooves could use a trim. I can't tell from that picture if his neck is ewed or undermuscled. His withers are huge... have fun saddle fitting

Other than his hip being small and overall a weak looking hind end, I'm not going to critique his hind legs as the picture doesn't do him any favours in that area.

Thank you he still needs to gain some weigh so hes not even as big and wide as he will be! he is gaining more muscle mass the more I work him! I will set him up tomorrow and get pictures from all views! I actually put my saddle on him today and even with his weight down it was still tight!

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!
