    Good shoulder, legs are hard to tell with all the hair but straight and strong in the front. His bag legs are good but not as straight as what is considerd 'proper' confo.
    His bum is very weirdly shaped but filled. The photo from behind makes it look like his legs are slightly turned in [cow hocks] but not enoguh to be noticable and wont effect his performance [well it is probs just the pic but to me it looks like that] .... he has a naturally low head which is good if you want a WP horse. His chest is nice and broad and he has nice sturdy legs. His neck and head are well balanced together [some horses, especially TB's [even tho ur horse sint a tb im just saying] have thin necks and their heads look to large for the neck].
    His ears a short and thickish form what I can tell which is supposed to say that he is intelligent and willing.
    Overall he looks sturdy and well balanced :)

    He does have a weird butt. His croup is pretty high too, (I'm starting to think that is a big QH thing). He has a nice head and neck. I can't really tell anything about his legs because they are so.. fuzzy and the white is throwing me off with the snow and stuff. I love his coloring though :)

    Not cow hocked because rear canon bones parallel each other and hocks aren't turned in, toes are turned out and believe it or not , this is normal and correct.
    Overall, he is very tidily built. Great bone all around, Croup high and lacking in gluteal muscle development (the large muscle aon the ver top of the rump.)
    I bit of a hay belly but they all do right now. Just needs muscle development.
    He is a really nice little horse with a build that says he will be sound for a long time.

    I was going to say that but I really couldn't tell with the way the pictures were. Glad someone else saw it too though.

    Your youngster is a good looking boy. With his being only a 4 year old he has some more growing to do. As he progresses he will muscle up and his rump will probably fill in with muscle, too.

    Well first off, he clearly cannot be a true quarter horse seeing as he has pinto coloring.

    What I see when I look at him is a nice shoulder and decent angles throughout the hind end (although a very short croup and high tail-set when makes it look odd). Although, he has very weak, long loins which attributes to his saggy belly. When you start him in work really make him use his back to build up a strong top-line! He ties in rather low in the neck, but it is a nice length and good attachment at the withers. He is set back on his front legs which is going to put strain and concussion on his joints so really watch for and signs of discomfort of swelling, especially at the knee. He's got a nice pastern length and angle though, which is good. I just glanced at the front and hind view and didn't see anything major - but can say that he isn't cow-hocked.

    Overall, he's not going to be the most athletic horse in the world, but he will certainly try his hardest and will take you where you hopefully want to go. :)
