Critique my TB?

Hello :)
This is my OTTB Rock Out G Man (who is now Irvin)- he is a 3 year old and about 16.1 hh. He was really ribby when I first got him, he's filling out nicely! So what do you guys think of him? Sorry for the kind of akward picture but this is the best one I have of him standing so far- this was taken at our first show we went to last week!

From this angle it is impossible to judge his hind leg angles or his hind quarters or his coupling and top line.

However, his front end (from hips forward) look so classic.. His shoulder may be a little steep but he has a nice open angle at the point of shoulder. His neck is set correctly and he has a lovely wide throat latch and a classic "hunter" type head. He has good bone and nice roomy hocks.

I like what I see. Would love to see more photos than this one. This horse reminds me of Irish Thoroughbreds that are often Steeple chasers.
