Critique on TB's....ongoing search

I am looking this TB and was interested in his confirmation.

There is a lot to like about this horse. He has a very nice shoulder, strong topline and coupling, and nice hind leg. The only thing I can really fault him on is he has a bit of a thick neck and thicker throat latch. His SI is placed a bit further back than ideal and he might be slightly tied in below the knee (hard to tell from this photo). I don't recall your plans for your future horse, but this horse looks like he would have at least lower level ability for most sports. Really a nice horse IMO.

Just a side note, is this from New Vocations? Dave in Dixie? I was asking because I see you are in Colorado and they don't adopt to Colorado. I have been looking at horses from them and I am in TX so I had to ask about out of state adoptions

Oh ok, that's good :). I have been looking at this horse personally as I'm horse shopping, that's why I recognized him and that he was from New Vocations

They took a while to decide to let us adopt from CO... It wasn't right away.

Might just be the photo, but that left front pastern looks puffy to me (maybe an old bow on that foreleg)??

Does that look like an old bow to anyone else or am I just seeing things?
