    I am not really good at critiquing, but I have to say "what a great looking butt!"

    First thing I notice is that he is sickle-hocked in the back legs.
    His back is also a little long, though just, just enough to tell. I like his head and that nice chunky butt ;)
    He also has alot of build to his shoulders which in the first pic makes him look kind of stumpy in the legs, but in the last photo it's not as evident. Could just be the picture then.

    He seems to be a bit long backed and short legged compared to his body size, but I have a 14.3 Mustang who is built like a tank, so I am actually rather partial to big horses with short legs. He is strong enough to carry me but short enough for easy on/offs on the trail. All the perks of a big horse in an easy-to-mount package!

    So I really like him. If I had to pick him apart, I would like a shorter back, but my Mustang has a short back and it makes saddle fitting very difficult. This guy should be much easier to saddle fit. I really like him.
