Critique My New Colt Please!

This is my new colt, JH High Brow Tacos. Weird name? Yeah, I know. :)
I could only get his one side because he refused to move from the bale feeder. But here are a couple pictures anyways. Let me know what you think!

he's cute, but a tad cow hocked. If not the way he is standing. Im sure he will grow to be a nice horse.

Age?
Breed?

It's actually the way he is standing. Every time I would almost get the picture, he would move. It's the only one that I could get from behind. I will get more tomorrow.
He is 11 months old and is registered AQHA.

Here are a couple more of his back end. I couldn't get one where he would stand still for me long enough. I will also try to get some better ones this afternoon.

He is back at the knee and rump high. He has "poor lines" wihich indicate a lack of groceries. He has a poor coupling and the angle from his point of elbow to point of shoulder is extremely low (this one won't be picking his knees up over fences if you jump him.. his knees will point down). His pasterns appear short and upright. Tail set is high.

He also shows the start of a sway back.. and it does not appear that he is that old (yearling? Coming 2 on the outside?!

Head is cute. Like the width between the ears.

He is only 11 months old. No I won't be jumping, just pleasure horse in a few years.
