General critique, please?

This is my horse, Hero Al-Ahmar (Hero). He is 3/4 arab and 1/4 hackney. The video is when he was a two year old, the photos are of him now as a 3 almost 4 year old. I want general critique, but also, what parts of him seem hackney? What parts seem arab? Does he seem like a purebred to you? How is his movement in your opinion? He is a dream to ride, an easy trot and you can barely feel his canter. I do not yet have very many good photos, as you can see xD

Video (two year old):

I am not familiar with hackney's, but for the Arabian, i can see it in the way he moves. He propells himself forward with his hindend very nice. He has a nice floaty trot, more knee action than i would like, but of course that is me disecting him for Endurance. He has a nice Araby neck, needs some muscle, but really nice neck and shoulder. Overall he is a nice looking horse!

Oh, I would also like to add that he was being boarded at a barn far away and when he came back he was underweight, but we are feeding him lots with vegetable oil and he is putting it on, and hopefully muscle will follow ^-^ I don't know how much come extra weight will change his conformation, of course.
