    Wow, he's stunning!

    There are a few things I noted, so I'll go ahead and just throw them out. His neck ties in pretty low. He is defiantly proportioned weird in the back- as if his wither placement should be further forward. Sickle hocked and his back pasterns seem pretty upright, while all of them seem a little too short. His croup is also very sloped which gives him a low set tail.

    I like his top line other than the sloped croup. He has withers that carry nicely into his back and a very short back and strong coupling. His point of shoulder is low and his shoulder is a bit steep in addition to the things you have noted. Steep pasterns behind are not as serious as steep pasterns in front. Hinds carry 40% of the weight.. fronts 60%

    I love this guy....everything about him. He's extremely well balanced, LOVE where his neck ties in, I find nothing wrong with where his withers are...pretty darn perfect for a pleasure horse to have a nice break at the wither and flatten the neck right out. Love the back length and deep heart girth, nice roomy hocks with a great set that line up pretty well with his knees. He may be a bit steep in the croup but he has a gorgeous hip so it all works well.

    All I see is a steep shoulder and maybe tied in at the knee a bit, but other than that he is lovely! Very good looking boy, has such a soft eye, bet he's a lover not a fighter lol
