OTTB stallion

This is a friends stallion. He did well on the track, suffered a very severe sessamoid fracture and survived an extremely severe battle with bacterial infection that involved draining the infection out of his chest(thus the dent between ribs). He has a huge heart and is a major fighter, even when he was so sick he never faltered, and always had a strong will to live. He is well bred and is crossed with a couple mares a year. Not looking for opinions on wether he should keep his jewels, just thought I would get a few opinions on conformation. His temperment is absolutely fantastic.

Not ideal photos for a critique. He appears to have a decent shoulder and I like his neck length and tie in. He has an attractive head. He is long backed with a weak coupling. Croup is steep. Hock angle is ok. Front legs are light on bone. The front leg that we can see looks very odd from the knee to pastern. Perhaps the sesamoid fracture (though this would be an unusual presentation for this problem). If not he is severely tied in below the knee or something (need better photos to tell). Pasterns are a good length and slope. He would look better with another 80 lbs on him. Additional photos of him standing square might enhance his appeal. Very average looking horse From what I can see here.

I agree that getting proper photos for critique would allow us to type one out for you.
