Conformation Critique

These were taken of my 8 y/o TB pony, Danny Boy at the beginning of last summer. I'll take some more current ones once he sheds out. He has gained 75-100 lbs since moving him to a stable closer to my university where he is turned out on grass (as opposed to small dirt pens at his old stable). His neck has developed quite a bit near the withers as he isn't constantly craning his neck like a giraffe looking for killer 18-wheelers hiding in the bushes next to the arena (have you figured out that his old stable was in the middle of the city, ha ha). So I'll shut my mouth and let you see him.

He's about 14.3 1/2 hands right now, probably closer to 14.2 3/4 at the time the photos were taken. 7 y/o at the time of the photos and around 900 lbs. We train dressage and jump.

I can't see too much wrong with him also. He does have a really skinny neck, and it might be too short also. But other than that can't find anything too bad looking with him. He's a pretty boy!!

He is very pretty. I don't normally like TB's but he did catch my eye. I love his markings.

His neck does seem a little short, and skinny. He does look a little underwieight (but you already know that :) Put some muscle on him and I think he will look terrific. Please share updated pictures. He is a very nice looking boy!
