I hate to critique the old guys, especially when they're in as nice of shape as this boy is, but since you asked I'll give him a shot
What I see is high-set withers, giving the impression of the ewe neck Tinylily pointed out. I believe that this is more from being undermuscled (happens quite often in the older years, or in horses who are not worked vigorously) that being naturally ewed. My guess is that he has been allowed to hold his head high for most of his life, and so developed the wrong muscles in his neck.
I see strong, well defined shoulders and sickle hocked (possibly slightly camped under as well?) hind legs but clean forelegs and very good bone. All together a very nice horse in good condition for his age and a very honest, kind looking face. You should be proud of him!
I agree that he may have some appy in him, as well as quarter horse.
