I've studied this picture time and time again and now I would like to see if there's anything I missed- could you tell me the good and the bad you see in him?

Im not a QH person but I really like his front end!
What I see is he is built downhill and his back legs seem a bit too straight. Ill leave the rest to the experts!

I agree that his legs look too straight in this picture although normally "in person" he doesn't seem that way to me.

Alright I was just stating what I saw :) Maybe a more experienced critique could come in

Unfortunately, I can't give a more experienced critique, lol, but here we go. By the way, you have nice horses...
I also like his front end. It all fits really well together- lovely shoulder, and although this may be more of a personal preference, I think his head and neck are lovely. His front legs look very nice, I'd say they're perfect, although he looks a bit light in bone and his legs look like they're set a little far under his chest (pigeon breasted??). Nicely angled, short pasterns all around, nice short canon bones and low-set hocks. His back looks nice and short although he is pretty bum-high. His hip looks okay to me, although he has a very steep coup. His back legs look a bit straight to me, and/or sickle-hocked. Not positive.

Hopefully I did a good job with the critique- Overall he is a very pretty guy, although a little chunky, lol!

Yes he is chunky but we're working on that! Thank you for the wonderful critiques!

Green Broke
Nice solid old time type Quarterhorse. VERY substantive with good bone and good muscle. Back is a little long and butt is a little high. He is a bit sway backed.. and could be helped by trotting up hills and over cavaletti. Croup may be a bit steep and his point of shoulder could stand to be set a bit higher opening that angle a bit more.

That being said, this is a really solid horse. Looks a good bit like "The Ol' Man" and I like him quite a lot,

His front end is shorter than his back, and he is pretty thickly built, but his coat looks healthy, he truly is a pretty horse.

I always really liked his front half better than his back half.
