Critique APHA gelding

I was flipping through some pictures and found my old APHA gelding who I had to sell last year because I relocated. I was just wondering what you think of him and critique if youd like

Also here is a link to his bloodlines: Cuttin The Partee Paint

Him as a yearling. His first halter class.

And this is with his new family as a two year old. It was his third ride and they took him trail riding and they said he did great!

His croup seems to be a little high and he is built downhill. His neck could have a little more muscling along the crest and he looks to be a little over at the knew to me. Also his back legs could have a little bit more of a bend in them.
But he is a nice lookiing horse

Actually his back legs have too much of a bend, making him slightly sickle hocked.
I'm assuming that because he was a yearling in those first pics, that is why he's so butt high. Probably leveled out nicely, though. Handsome boy & he looks to be developing nicely. Few more years & he'll probably have a nice amount of muscle.

Is that a baby in a backpack on the back of a green horse? ... O_o

That aside, he filled out nicely! I, too, noticed his croup is steep, and his neck a little thin and high. Pretty boy, though....

He is built down hill but some babies to fill out and level out some. He does have a cute refined head and neck tho, I agree with lilruffian he is a bit sickle hocked. But he is cute!

All those comments about his conformation seem like what I see with almost any QH. They all seem downhill and a little over at the knee. Maybe not ALL, but a lot of them. He is cute.
I hope they have a guardian angel , baby on backpack on green horse, no helmet.

I'm sorry I don't usually say anything but..putting two people on the back of a two year old is horrible....much less sticking an infant in a back pack on a green horse...

He is a nice looking horse though.
