3 y/o paint colt

Ok, this guy is in training. We're still in basic groundwork with him. He was a rescue and very skittish when I got him, but now you can do just about anything to him if you give him a treat and some scratches :)

You would probably never guess that he's a stud if you handled him, he's an absolute sweetheart. He's going to make someone a really nice gelding.
He's only about 14.2hh.

So I want some thoughts on him. I already have some things in mind that are wrong confo-wise, but maybe you all can see more than I can. If you see anything amiss, post it. I know he's not the most attractive thing in the world. :P
Thanks <3


^^ I think he's standing on a hill here, so just imagine he's level :p


^^ He was neighing to his buddy here

I'm not really good at conformation stuff, but these were some things that I noticed.

He has upright pasterns, but that might be because he is still young. I also noticed that he has long withers and maybe a tad of a roached back. It might be hard finding a saddle that will fit him nicely! He has a bit of a ewe neck, but with some training, that might be able to be fixed. I really like his head and markings. His tail is so full!

I noticed the ewe neck & pasterns, and I agree about the back being roached.

His tail is impossibly gorgeous! I wish my friggin halter horse would grow a tail like his! Sheesh.

He looks over at the knee on the right side shot. Might just be how he is standing though.

I agree with the neck, back and pasterns.

He for sure is not stud material.

I noticed he looked over the knee in that picture too, but I think he was picking up his leg or something wonky like that.

Don't worry, he's a future-gelding for sure :)
