Smile Critique my Paint Clydesdale Gelding

Hi! Can you critique my Paint Clydesdale gelding? He's seven years old. Yes, I know, he's extremely fat. We're working on that;). The picture isn't that great, but it's the best I have. Thanks!

Although I'm a HUGE fan of draft/draftX breeds, this guy just looks odd to me?

Either his neck is too big for the rest of him or his head is too small? He's very oddly proportioned imo. His front legs seem too thin for the rest of his build as well.

That's just my opinions though, I'm not very grand at critiquing. He DEFINITELY needs to get some sort of work out.

I agree that even for a draft x he has a very thick neck for the size head he has, his front legs might look a bit more proportioned once he is in shape and lean. Defiantly needs good workouts.

But he looks like the best thing to hug!

I think his neck looks big because he is overwaight and has a little bit of crest... but that's just my guess, he's very pretty, I like him

I think he is gorgeous! With a little weight loss his proportions should pull together a bit more smoothly, very nice refined face for a Clydesdalex, and his coloring is lovely!

His previous owners said he was gelded late, so that's why his neck is so thick

I'm selling him because he's not the teddy bear he was when we went to buy him. He hadn't been drugged, he just likes men a lot more than women.....and my mom's divorced. The guy in the pic is a John Lyons-style trainer that came to trim his feet.....Sundance has a HUGE hangup with getting his feet done. He's chased 3 of my farriers out of the barn....but this guy he loves because the guy spent 4 hours just being the 'lead mare' to get Sundance to trust and respect him. He was able to do his feet with absolutely no problem. It was amazing....If anyone wants that guy's information, I'll give it to you. He does training and natural hoof trimming.

He looks lovely, and with a little weight off would look fantastic

By the way, anyone have any ideas on how to get weight off of him faster? He doesn't seem to be losing any despite our efforts. Right now, he gets half a feed scoop of Grow 'n Win by Buckeye, twice a day, and 2 flakes of hay, twice a day. He also gets out on the grass pastures about once a week.
Exercise-wise, Sundance gets minimal. We don't ride him, as we don't have a saddle that fits him, and he basically lounges around the pasture all day.

Have him on a feed that is jsut minerals and stuff like that.

Here in new zealand we have this Equine Balancer . Horse Sport/Leisure . NRM

And longe him everyday, start with 5 or so mins each side and work up to 15 mins each side tops! Its hard work
