Critique my Rescue 3 Yr Old

I rescued this horse from camelot kill pen this spring. He was underweight and afraid, but has an AMAZING additude and willing to please. I know NO history on him, as in breed or anything. What do you think? We have just started him under saddle. I want to use him for trails and maybe some small local shows. Kind of a nice all around gelding.

For the record I know nothing on conformation! But from the naked eye he looks great - I'm trying to figure out why he was in the kill pen?? Has anyone given you a guess at how old he is?

He's such a cute guy and he looks so calm!!

I'd love to see some square pics from the side, but he looks pretty good IMO. Seems to toe out a bit, but not bad at all. Looks like he's a Dun as well. Pretty boy!

He is dun. He has Stripes on his legs too. My Vet said he is 3. I have no idea why he was in the kill pen. I really wish i could find his owners that sent him (or bred him). He is very calm. I have worked this summer on exposing him to about anything I could. He is smart. A thinker...doesnt tend to spook at stuff but will stop and say..whats that? I am hoping he will be my replacement for my 18 year old Rocky Mountain.

Wow well I hope you can track down the owners - if they are sending three year olds who look that good to the kill pen then what could they be doing to other horses? I might be over reacting but that seems a little odd to me??

he didnt look that good when i got him, he was pritty thin and under muscled, but the basics were there. I just fed and exersized him lol. You wouldnt belive some of the really nice horses that go through there. Its amazing! His fee was only $300.

He looks like a QH to me, very pleasing to the eye. I can't believe some of the good looking, potentially talented horses that end up in the kill lots. There was a post on fuglyhorse that had a listing of horses that were sold to kill buyers and some of them really got to me.
