critique quarter horse gelding

So I put a deposit on this guy today :]
6yr old Quarter horse gelding. Supposed to be double three Ohs bred but no papers. Extremely well mannered for only being out once in the last couple months. He will be my trail/barrels/cow horse so whatever I decide to do pretty much haha. He was extremely good about the guys son running around him and bumping his belly and butt with brushes and such. He was actually gelded early but still has those big ol cheeks goin on haha. Very well mannered and by the end of the 20 min ride (it was crazy hot so I tried to make it quick while pushing all the buttons I could think of hah ) he was getting softer and relaxing into the work. Very smooth big movements atleast it felt like it haha

Quite a long back (based on second photo), but very nice shoulder layback shown in both photos. Nice engine behind. Downhill in build. Decent looking legs. Overall looks like he should be able to do just what you want, at least at low levels. Looking forward to better photos.

I agree, his back is long, but he looks really nice otherwise :)

He is a bit but he moves beautifully. Really gets down on his butt once he relaxed about his mouth

Temperament almost always wins out conformation; as long as he is sound. Agreed long back and a prominent wither. Downhill but decent looking pasterns. Sweet looking. Good luck with him and post updates!
