Conformation on QH/Arab gelding?

This is my Aunt's gelding, I believe he is 6 in the first couple of pictures and then 7 in the rest. How is his conformation? There a lot of pics because I'm not so sure of everything to look for!

This is me & Stumpy last summer before she sent him to get finished by the Amish.. His mother is a double Bask Arabian mare & his father is a beautiful blood bay Quarter Horse stud (I might have some pics) with the most amazing temperament.




This is the only one I have of him from the front.. You're judging the horse, not my hubby. :P



Here is another one from this spring, I know not the best pictures but we were only home a short while!




This one was taken early spring (in Wisconsin) as well so he's still got his winter coat. She had not been riding him and he really got fat..
T

And this is my Aunt on him this year now that she's finally getting him back in shape!









And here is one of his big ole' booty

What a cutey!!! He looks more QH than anything else! Very nicely muscled, and very nice booty..lol...the only arab I can see in him is in his face! He has nice straight legs, good neck set, and pretty head. I think he's gorgeous!

Awh thanks!! I think so too! He definitely acts like a QH, too. I love Arabs but his Mom was a sassy thing. :)

The only time I think he looks like an Arab is when he trots.. He sort of flags up his tail and dances.

You should refer to the sticky on how to take pictures, that way you can get a better critique. They should be close up (not in the distance) from the side (not at an angle) without a rider for conformation critique and from the front and back without a person in the picture.

This website will be helpful.

Thanks for the link!! :) I wasn't taking these pictures specificly for the conformation - I live in North Carolina & he is in Wisconsin so I am going off of pictures that I had already taken of him! I was hoping there were a few in there that might help!!

Sorry, nothing really usable. Critiquing off the photos you posted might not necessarily represent the horse - that could be good or bad.

I see both breeds quite well on him; my first thought though is that he REALLY needs to lose some of that weight!!! Hard to tell just how lovely he is with so much excess chub...plus that is really really hard on those legs of his...compare his body to his legs...BIG difference, and you could be in big trouble should he founder, or start developing navicular, arthritis, or any other ailments that can be brought on due to all that extra weight he wasn't designed or built to carry.

Over all, I see a decently built horse (albeit very very fluffy), he has the nice araby head, and neck, higher tail set, and nice compactish build (traits from both breeds). He has a soft eye, and appears to move nicely. I would love to see him with about 2-300 lbs less. He would be stunning, I think.

He's a lovely tank of a horse. And I think he's actually got pretty good bone and feet for his size. Certainly as much or more than most Quarter Horses. And I don't see the Arab in him at all. Not in the head, legs, or anywhere else. Which is neither good nor bad, I actually like Arabians. But I don't see any coming through in these photos, lol!

Good looking hubby too by the way.

Haha, He is definitely a tank!! My aunt had him out in the pasture for a few years with little to no excersize.. They couldn't ride him because if they took him out his Mama would go nuts & she had been kicked by a b-word paint so she would just further hurt herself. I can't remember exactly what my aunt said was wrong but the surgery would have been thousands of dollars and the vet (her close friend) said that she would still probably be in a lot of pain so they decided to put her down. I think I have a pic where you can see it...



But I definitely agree, he doesn't look Arab at all! Kind of wish he did 'cause his grandsire was a beeeaauttiffull guy!!
