All in all, I like him. In the first pic his hind legs look off....camped under, sickle hocked, something. His pasterns look too steep. Maybe a tad pidgeon-breasted, but nothing too noticable. High-withered, but better than wither-less! Wither-less horses are a pain to fit saddles on, because the saddle constantly slips. I have a gelding with high withers, and it's not nearly as problematic as a horse with no withers, so you've got that going to for your gelding

Good muscling, nice strong rump, his shoulder is overall pretty nice, but a little steep. Nice throatlatch, acceptable but a little straight of a neck. Overall I really like him

Just thought I would add in, what discipline would you use him for? He currently does a bit of everything lol.
