Tennessee Walker opinions please.

I would like to get some opinions about my boy's confirmation. He is a 15.3 hand 17 year old. I am currently trying to work on the muscle atrophy behind his shoulders and generally muscle him up everywhere. These pics were taken last spring (when he wasn't a whooly mammoth) AND when he was actually CLEAN! Thanks!

Oh, and he's standing on a slight downhill slant,if that makes a difference.

I personally like his shoulder and he has good depth through the chest
Neck, as with his topline does need muscle as you have noted
Back is just a little long
Long cannons and he appears to be back at the knee
I don't mind the overall shape of his hindquarters and even his back legs seem alright

Looks like a wire or rope burn on his left front pastern. Long backed, upright pasterns. Small round hocks. Long cannons. Nice shoulder. Nice neck set. Needs a little weight and muscling.

I'm not going to critique his conformation, but he's gorgeous! I love his coloring.

That wasn't a rope burn or anything...I had an "anklet" on him that was a gift from a friend who is Wiccan. The gemstones were supposed to help him blend in with the new horses at the barn. Thanks for the input on confirmation!

Any more opinions? Here's another pic from the other side...He seems to be too much "under" himself in the back end in the photo, but he had just stepped back with his front end to see what I was doing. I'm so glad I let him mane grow out from how it was cut when I first got him. The second pic shows that anklet that someone thought was a wire or rope burn...

Where do you live with all that green grass. I'd like to be there. I'm looking at 2' of snow and huge snowbanks.

Saddlebag, it's definitely NOT green right now. Those pics were from last spring. I live in Southeast Georgia, and I would LOVE to have some snow.
