Mother and Son Comparison, Please!

I shot a pi of my mare and my gelding (her son) in almos the exact same pose the other day an was wondering if anyone could compare their conformation for me? I love te way my gelding came out from the breeding and what to one day in the future (2 to 4 or more years from now) breed my mare to the same sire again, as I think the cross came out very well.

Sorry, no pics of the sire, but he is 15 hands, TWHBEA registered Mack's Alabama Bear by Mack's Eclipse and out of Ebony's Misty Gal. My mare is not registered, but is by 16-1 hand, TWHBEA registered Ramrod Gem and out of a 15-3 hand RHAA registered mare by the name of Moonlight Bay (TWH regstered as a Racker).

My mare Gypsie (15-1 hands, 18 yrs, unregistered TWH --- Trail Horse)

My gelding Dakota (Gypse's son, 15-3-ih hands, 6 yrs, unregistered TWH --- Trail Horse)

Green Broke
The apple did not fall far from the tree here. Sonny is much like Mom.. same topline, same weak coupling and peak of croup set too far back. The son does not have as good a neck.. his is more muscled underneath and his head is set on the neck in a hammer headed fashion. She has a more defined shoulder but he has a better angle at the point of shoulder. She has a better rump and he his a bit weak in the rum, while she is camped under and has long, weak rear pasterns, he is a bit more correct in the hind leg (from what I can see) and has lower hocks, more bone and better pasterns.

IMO I would not breed the mare again.. I don't think she is good enough to be bred.. and IF I was going to breed her again I would find a different stallion that is prepotent for a better top line with better lumbro-sacral joint placement and a better hind leg conformation.
