Conformation Critique

Hello All,
Here is my 5y/o Paint gelding. I apologize for the pictures I know they arn't the greatest.... This is a pretty much a new horse for me since the last one didn't work out and is at a friends house doing trail rides and lessons. We are looking for a new name for him, his current barn name is Trouble but it just dosnt fit .
Thanks all!

Thank you!
I also want to add his parents. His Sire is A Hunka Trouble and his Dam is Dejs Princes.
Anymore critiques?

hes georgous! but in the 2nd picture his one hoof looks pigeon toed!
and his hocks look a little bit akward..but it could just be the angles of the pics. he dosent really have defined withers. his withers just go right into his neck and his chest isnt really defined either. it kinda just goes in with the neck. idk it cud be the angle hes standing in or the pictures. but its no really noticable. i looked at it for like 5 minutes before i found it! otherwise hes REALLY CUTE!!! and quite a looker!

what do you plan on doing with him

He is a pretty horse. He looks a bit cow-hocked and needs his feet done though. His jowls are a bit big (was he older when he was cut?). He is nice and level and has a wonderfully kind eye. ;p

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:

Thanks for the critiques! the picture that he looks pigeon toed is because he started to walk away just as I snapped the picture!
"He looks a bit cow-hocked and needs his feet done though" I think I took theses pictues the day before the ferrier came to trim and put shoes on, and he hadn't been trimed in probably 8 months or so before I got him. I plan on doing mostly dressage and western pleasure, maybe some low level jumping too.

your horse has an absolutely beautiful head. But his chest isn't as defined and his neck is a little thick at the top, which makes his withers look like part of his neck. In the first picture he looks a little downhill but in the other pictures he looks pretty equal. That's all I've got.

He has a beautiful head! I don't know much about paint blood lines, so I don't know what he's bred for, but looks like he would do for WP, maybe even a little reining if he develops more hip. Looks like he's built to be sound for sure! A real cutie!
Oh, for a name, he looks like a "Bourbon" to me! I like western horses to have westernish or cowboyish names! My cuttin horse trainer likes to pick on his guitar and sip on bourbon after shows, it just popped into my head...
