Critique my OTTB [confo, flat, and O/F]. (:

Critique please! This is my 8 y/o OTTB that I have been totally re-training myself. I'm just looking for a general conformation critique as I know it's not the best shot and there is only one. I've posted him on here a couple of times, but have been looking for a progress check.

Please be helpful, but not harsh! (:
(And keep in mind that I do not really have a trainer.)

Flat work:

Thanks!!

His feet look very... odd. Bubba will probably be able to explain more than that, when she sees this. But something about his feet is wrong.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Looks like he has a bit of a roach back to me...

But I LOVE HIM!! He looks great over fences :)

His feet are long, the farrier was out of town, he should be done within the next week. But if you all see something wrong, let me know. I'll talk to him and have him fix it.

I love him and his mohawk! So adorable. I noticed the roachback, too. Just a tad bit. But other than that, he looks great

my best friend is my arabian. People always tell me that he's the calmest horse they've ever seen. i tell them he's an arabian. and they are surprised :)

So I was looking at his feet today. I think it may just be the picture. Because they look relatively okay, just a tad bit long (as I said above, the farrier was out of town and had to come a week late). They do look a bit funny in the picture though. I'll post a picture after they're all done up and pretty. Also, the farrier has been trying to fix a poor farrier job caused by a farrier that did his feet at my old barn and MAJORLY messed them up.
