Disclaimer: I'm not great at conformations, but I'm learning! :)
Here's what I think I see. At first glance, what stands out is that he seems sickle-hocked, and I don't like how short his pasterns are. His feet also seem small for his size.
Looking at the rest of him, he seems a tad downhill in build with a steep-ish shoulder. I also wish he had more muscling on his hindquarters, as they do not seem proportionate to his body for a QH. There is something about his neck too, but I don't know enough to say what--probably muscling.
I do have a question for others who look at this photo-- why is it that some horses (such as this sweet boy) have ball-looking fetlocks? Does that have to do with his short pasterns/being a QH?
