Now I have this picture too, and he doesn't seem to have a long back in this picture.

Is it camera angle, perhaps?

I think that is because in this picture, the facing hind leg is stretched out and gives the impression that his hip is farther forward...

Just a trick of the eye, and the reason that standing square is the best way to judge conformation ;)

NOW he looks like he has a nice back :). He has a TB wither, so saddle fitting must be fun. He looks SLIGHTLY sickle hocked and a lil bum high. But bum high is common in stock breeds. I like him :). His build looks more tb then paint though. What's his bloodlines?

I knew he wasn't bum high! Saddle fitting was a pain, but we have a good one . Yes, he is very thoroughbred-like. His registered name is Docs Colonel Stitch. He is on all breed pedigree, I just can't post a link from my phone.
Thanks for your response!

I'm not that good at picking conformation but you must say I do like him :)

There are only two emotions that belong in the saddle;
one is a sense of humor and the other is patience!
