Barrel horse/prospect conformation

Just wondering what yall think conformation wise of my 2d barrel mare (black) and my barrel prospect gelding (sorrel) he's a AQHA futurity champion. He's finally lost weight he was about 200lbs OVER weight lol now he's a bit under but his back's finally straight and he has much more energy now.

I'm not great with conformation, but I do know it's a lot easier to evaluate with pictures where the horse is standing square and looking forward.

That being said, looks like both of their hind legs sit under them more than they're supposed to. If you drop a straight line down from the point of the butt it doesn't seem to hit the hock or really any part of the hind leg. Again, it could be the photos so it's hard to tell!

I'm not sure if that's much help, but in any case they're both adorable! Especially the mare. :) Love her face!

Their hind leg conformation is fine. They look like very nice horses, but is it possible to post slightly smaller photos so I can see the whole thing without scrolling back and forth across the screen?

I figured somebody else would be better at figuring it out!
