    Critique my TB X Welsh gelding's conformation?

    Hi there :)
    I lease a TB X Welsh gelding, he may have some other stuff mixed in, but as far as I know he is a thoroughbred x welsh.
    He's just turned four, these pictures were just leading up to his birthday. I know he is pretty roman nosed and has a thin mane and tail. Other than that, all conformation critique is very welcome :) Sorry if these aren't the best pictures by the way, but thanks all the same! These pictures are about 2-3 weeks old, a little while after I got him, and he's starting to build a little more muscle at the moment.



    (In this picture he was on a slope, so I apologise)







    Here's a link to a video I made of him too, though you can't really see much of his movement as it wasn't him "in action", you can see him walk etc.

    Thanks!

    Its impossible to get a correct judgement of his conformation without pictures of him standing properly on a flat area. Please get some and we will be glad to judge his confo.

    Just from those photos he appears to have a decent shoulder on him
    Nothing off about the front legs either
    Back I think is a good length
    I personally like the shape of his hindquarters
    Can't really say about his back legs without him standing square on flat ground, but they give the impression that they would be relatively correct. Better pictures would help of course.
    Neck is set high and needs muscle, causing his head to look a little big

    Can't do confo critique from those. But, he has loads of the cuteness factor. Don't let that cause you to spoil him, ok? Easy to do with a horse that cute.

    Okay, thank you all!
    I apologise about the pictures: I didn't take them with conformation critique in mind, so I didn't make him stand square on flat ground etc. I will get better pictures as soon as I can! I would have gotten them today but I was the only one around so I had no one to hold him. And yes, I will get working on building up his neck muscle :)
    He is very cute, and I do have to be careful not to spoil him indeed, he always knows the right face to pull to make me want to give him a treat. But I'll generally make him work for it ;) I'm training him as a hunter/jumper (he LOVES jumping, he's only just started as he was too young before and I didn't want to ruin him, but he gets so excited just seeing me set up the jumps for him, he starts trying to get loose so he can come jump, and he'll never refuse one ). I'll try using side reins on him to make him work on his neck :)
