Can you critique his weight for me?

I got Romeo March 16, 2008
He was about 300 pounds overweight, long feet, and pretty much untouched.




Here are the 2010 pics (He lost about 25 pounds over winter)


Here he is today May 16, 2010 (we were working on gaining weight, and now we are going to do some more muscling)

Oh, you can tell me about his confo if you like too!

I think his weight is just about right, now you just need to muscle him up. Can't tell you about conformation, since I don't know much about it yet

He looks good!

From what I can tell from the pictures (you don't really have any confo pictures posted) he looks decently well put together. I don't like his neck, to me it looks a little short, and he looks a little over the knee.

It would help if we had pictures of him standing square, broad side facing the camera, and then a picture of directly behind and directly in front of him, so we can get an idea of his legs.

I don't think his neck is short, I just think it needs more muscle. You have done an excellent job with him! He is so cute. Like you said you do need to muscle him up but other than that he is a handsome boy!

Thank you everyone! We are starting the hill work, and more just plain riding now that it is warm outside.
