Critique my Arabian

I'd like critique of my 5 yr old Arabian geldings conformation!
Positive things about his conformation are appreciated as well!
He hasn't been rode yet, he's really out of shape still so he doesn't have much muscle. And in case anyones wondering he's my dressage prospect. (: He has amazing movement!

Also... sorry these photos are posting all messed up... I don't know how to work these forum sites!

Humans are like Slinkies. Practically useless, but still fun to push down the stairs.

Stunning love his hip. Good for you for waiting to start him. He will be fabulous to ride.

Wow what a pretty boy!! He definitely carries himself nicely. I think his neck looks a little thick but that could just be from lack of work, as the rest of him isn't as muscular as I'd like it to be. But hey! I'm picky :)
Gorgeous horse though! No conformation issues I can see.

Gorgeous boy! Looks like he's got nice movement, should excel at Dressage with good training :)

One thing, though, but it's not about his conformation. I personally would never turn out a horse wearing a halter, but especially not a rope halter like the blue one you've got on- if he were to get it caught on something and pull, where the knots are will press into bundles of nerves on his face and it will really hurt. But that's just me; I'm not criticizing your decisions.

Where there's a bay, there's a way!

If he were to scratch his cheek with his hind hoof, he could get it caught in the halter & likely break his leg.
