I'm not an expert, but he seems a little downhill (may be that his hind feet are just closer in the pic, though.) His shoulder seems kinda steep too.
You looking at buying him?

His back legs appear to be a little too far back.

Ok guys! I've been studying conformation to try and get better with this, but I may be wrong... Here goes nothing.

Considering how flat the ground is, he does look like he's built fairly downhill, and his hindlegs are too far back, camped out, I believe the term would be? I personally think his withers look good, and is it just me or does his neck look a little thin?

He does not look down hill to me. His withers are even with the croup.

He is a typical TB, has high withers.

Nice shoulder.

His LF ankle looks a little large (I did not read what they had posted about him) to me.

All I can see is that he's a but Downhill.

He looks a little downhill and his neck looks a little thin. Overall, he looks good.

He is downhill, but most tb are and is anyone else seeing a tad over the knee (?) He seems to have decent bone for a tb and his neck to me doesn't look abnormally thin, though, it could use muscling.

I rather like him and I have a huge soft spot for TBs.

Is it just me or does his left front fetlock and pastern look swollen? Confirmation wise he looks good, doesn't seem downhill to me but is camped out and his neck is a bit thin.
