Talking Please critique 12 year old QH gelding

12 year old QH gelding, we use him for trails, he is a very steady almost bombproof mount that will go through and over anything. Hes a big big solid horse. I have him on lease for the summer with the option of keeping him at the end. Was just curious about what people though.

Please excuse his feet, the farrier was out literally the day after to put new front shoes on him.

He is built a bit long and goose rumped. His legs behind are over straight. Like many Quarterhorses the angle at the point of shoulder is a bit closed and the point of shoulder to elbow lies a bit flat. He is a bit ewe necked (neck set low) and his front legs appear crooked with short pasterns. He has nicely muscled gaskins. His head is coarse.

I also question the lens taking these images. It looks like whoever took them zoomed out and the lens is almost a wide angle lens.. as the photos seem distorted a bit and I think that is the reason.
