Critique~ 7yr old APHA halter gelding -PIC HEAVY

This is Cisco, reg. Name The One For All ( Pedigree - The One for All Paint) he's my halter gelding. I got him in Dec. Of 2010 and he was in terrible shape (not from the people I bought him from. They had just recently got him back from a neglectful owner) I showed him last year as practice but only fitted him a little. I was more concerned with putting weight on him and getting his hooves fixed. I have included a lot of pictures lol

This was last summer. Please ignore the background.










This was taken about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Note the fuzz ;)










Please no comments about the angle of his hooves. I know. Lol
They're still growing out and he's getting a nice hoof to him but its taking time due to the state in which they were in.

Cis is also used as a trail horse. I'm trying to make an all-arounder out of him :)

He is just LOVELY! I typically don't go for a bald faced horse, but I'd snatch him up!
He looks to be a beautiful smooth mover, his shoulder/neck tie in is beautiful. You've done a great job on his topline. His neck looks a tad short and thick, but I like them that way...his nicely sloped shoulder takes it up. Nice short strong back, lovely rounded hind, his legs look sturdy to hold his frame, maybe a tad bit upright/short pasterns. Overall a sturdy good lookin boy! I bet you're goin broke on sunscreen for that nose!

I'm not a fan of bald faces either but I just adore his! Don't know why lol
I invested in a fly mask with a long nose and that works great for keeping his nose protected. I tried Bullfrog spf on my appy's nose one summer and it broke him out! O.o so I don't touch the stuff any more lol.
That neck of his IS thick! I bought a SuperSweat to try and sweat off the crest he has (he's foundered before) and the normal horse size was way too small so I had to order an extra large. He's just a chubby bunny ;)

Those aren't the best pictures if you are looking for a conformation critique. The only thing that I can tell is that it appears he has better bone in his legs than many of the halter bred horses I've seen. AND, the one thing that really pops at me...he actually has angle in his hocks, which is awesome.

I really like his coloring (except for the bald face ). The only paints I like are the ones that don't have a whole lot of white on them.

I trail ride all my horses so they have to have good legs!! I can't stand those halter horses who have those really skinny cannon bones with those huge, massive bodies. I would be scared they'd snap a leg one day
