Critique Hanoverian

Just wondering what people think, how he look. He's a gelding a tall boy, but I like my horses tall because of longer stride. So, I was just going to provide a couple pictures, different days and see what everyone thinks.
As I said, he is a Hanoverian gelding.

First thing I notice is that he's a tad high in the withers and his neck appears a little long, but that could be due to lack of muscle more than anything. Apart from that, he looks rather nice and I like his legs ;)
Pretty boy!

How old is he and what is his breeding?

Quite a nice horse, a little weak and straight behind, nicely sloping shoulder and quite uphill, wither is quite steep so you might have 'fun' fitting a saddle on him but once he bulks up it should get easier. Good length of rein on him as well, though his neck ties in a little low to the wither and I am not so keen on how his head is set onto his neck through his gullet.

I'm guessing that he is quite young? Once he matures and builds more muscle he will be a lovely horse

Very uphill, but a very gorgeous boy!!! I love him! Love his legs and head. Very nice. If he is still young he will probably build up his bum

Very uphill is a good thing if we're talking about a dressage prospect ;) This guy's wither is wither than his croup so yes he is uphill in build that way, but I'm not sure if he will move so uphill with his fairly straight hind legs. But uphill is very much a desired trait in the dressage breeds such as a hanoverian

Agreed! Otherwise you'd be like a wheelbarrow ;)
I can't see the pictures at the moment as I'm at work so will check when I get home. I will get some confo pics of my Westfalen too, she's very young, and was very skinny, so she doesn't have a lot of build up, and her front legs are a bit funny with pigeon toes but would be good to compare!

My apologies for so many posts here but I have just gotten home from work and now that I can see him on my home computer (bigger and better res than work!) I take back what I said about him being straight behind. Yes, still a little straight through the hip and stifle, but the hocks are actually a lot better than what I thought at first glance earlier today.

HAHA! Duffy is known as the giraffe on our yard, she pokes her nose through the feeding hole of the horse next to her... YO says he's never known a horse be able to do that before! She's got a few bite marks there too :o

When I first brought Duffy on the yard my instructor was so so angry with me. She said I thought you wanted to compete, not have a pet. I said I want a project, and for the money I have, this is the best I can get. Now everyone fights over her haha!
