Yep, his front looks pretty good except for those huge withers. As for his back end: *deep breath* his tail set is really high, his croup seems very long and too flat, he stands WAY camped out, he looks a bit bandy-legged and toed out, and he has no muscle to speak of. Plus the whole area of his flank just bugs the pee out of me but I can't recognize what exactly is wrong, I just know that something is. :/ There is something about his back pasterns/fetlocks too. That may just be a result of being camped out.
On a better note, his front legs and chest are gorgeous and he looks like such a sweet boy. :) His neck is a good length and I love the angle of his shoulder. I bet his trot is a dream to ride. :p
Not a nightmare, I have seen lots worse. Mother nature just saw fit to put him together a little funky. What is important is that he is sound and you love him.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
