Thoroughbred Critique!!

This is my 11 month old thoroughbred gelding. Will be a yearling mid April. 13.2 at the withers and around 14hh at his butt. What do you think about his future hight and conformation at the moment?
Critique away :)

Holy croup high.

I really hope that he evens out, but that is more than likely due to the age.

Also, it appears he has an ewe neck, but I am not sure if this has the ability to change over time. I think that a critique is hard at this age, because a lot of horses change a lot during their time as a yearling. At least the ones that I have seen have.

He is sure in the awkward stage, but I like the back half, and dislike the front half. He has a weak shoulder, chest, neck, but a real nice face. Front legs look fine, back end, croup, gaskin, all nice, nice. His back legs are okay as well. Hopefully this is just a gooky stage and he is out of it soon. Overall, he looks well taken care of.

Too young to critiquwe. I can say in this condition he would not get a second look at a yearling sale. He is.. common looking. Bone is light, joints not large and he is tied in at the knee.

That being said, yearlings going to a sale are conditioned.. hand walking and daily grooming etc.

This is no age to judge a horse either. He is too young and there is a saying, "Tops may come but bottoms never." This means that the legs he has are the legs he has but the body will change and, perhaps, dramatically.

What is his breeding?

He has lots of time to grow. He looks like he just got through with a growth spurt. At age 2 you may get a better ideal of how he may grow. He looks like he should get to about 16 h, my guess. Looks like he needs a groom and in pic he looks thin, but not so bad in the other.

Hey, people I said critique not criticize lol. He still has a bit of a winter coat, so he obviously doesn't look his best at the moment. I rescued him so he has some weight to put on but is definitely not underweight. I have no information on his breeding.

Have you dewormed him yet? Looks like he might be a little wormy with that belly.

A few people have been saying that. Maybe its the angle of the pic? When I first got him, he was full of worms. I have him on a really good worming routine now. He is completely clear, maybe a few but that is normal.

Yearling
This is a horrible age to do a critique from, especially with a colt who has seen hard times.

Have you had a fecal count done? Also did you do a panacur power pack when he was really wormy? Or just a regular wormer? I suspect there are worms there, and no that is not normal.
