Yes, much better!
Okay, starting from the front and working back...
His throatlatch is a bit thick, but I like where his neck ties in on his chest. He is a bit pigeon breasted. Decent shoulder angle, which is good.
Sky high withers. O.o
His front legs are nice and straight and his pasterns are a good length, but they strike me as a little on the upright side. He also looks like he has almost no heel.
His back might be a tad long, but he has good depth through his heart girth.
Not a huge fan of his back end, though. He has a rather large hunter's bump (in fact, his back almost looks roached in that pic, but it could be lack of muscle). His stifle is nice and low, but, as I thought from the smaller pic, he is indeed straight through his hocks and sickle hocked. His rear pasterns are also very upright. Is his right rear hoof as short as it looks in that pic? O.o It looks fairly clubby, as well.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
