Confo critique, please

Since he's pretty much grown now, how does his overall conformation look?

Hes a Tennessee Walker... currently four years and three months old and stands at 15.2 hands.

Thanks in advance!

Green Broke
I think with more of the correct muscles he will be gorgeus!

Yea, definitely more muscle!!!!! His rear end looks pretty weak, which is due to lack of muscle there as well. Everything else looks pretty good from what I can see, but I didn't study him, just glanced and that was it. He's very pretty though!!

Thanks guys. He hasn't been ridden or worked much at all this year... I gave him a few months break earlier, then it got extended when an absess popped through his hoof (twice), then it got extended again when he sliced the side of his hoof into a pretty large crack (that he's recently rebroke back off, though he isn't lame this time, thankfully)... and due to the fact that he doesn't have front shoes on, I'm not riding him very far when I do ride (which isn't very often right now anyway, and wouldn't be very often right now even if he was shoed, as the heat index recently has been in the hundreds, and it's just too hot to make the horses work...

I don't know anythign about confo, but to me he looks like he's very well put together :)

He looks a little toed out in the front and just a bit in the back. As stated above he needs more muscle. And I can't put my finger on it but something looks strange to me about his neck..most likely its just me. But don't take my advice harshly I am not to good at critiques. Your horse is beautiful I can't wait to see what he looks like with more muscle!

I see a bit of a too-long neck, a weak back with a kind of dip there......and a bit toed-out behind as his only major faults. Other than those he looks well put-together!

Thanks guys! I really appreciate your input!

His neck does tie in a bit low, but so does his dam's neck (or so I've been told).

I think he/she is a little splay footed in front and back(but no cow hocks), and Neck is a little bit long and ewe'd...

To me he looks very narrow in front. His neck is not great but he needs a bit more muscle is all and his appearance will improve alot wiht that!
