Here. I'm not sure if they're the same photos, but the horse is definitely always by that trailer. Lol.

Get some conformation shots. Square him up and get front/back/both side. These pictures are nothing to critique.

I want to know about his legs; are they straight? Does he have a good slope to his shoulder? Is his back to long? Does he have the start of a conformation that can withstand a lifetime of performance every weekend?
I think a critique of a horse's confirmation is an all over look at him. His front legs look incredibly short in relation to his head/neck/body/hind legs. It's really hard to look at his shoulder with tiny legs and a giant upper body in these photos.

If you really want an honest critique I don't think he has very good conformation and am glad that he is going to be gelded. I would think he needs to go through some pretty dramatic changes to be what I would consider a good "performance" horse of any kind and since he's not a foal any more, I don't know how much leveling out he has left to do with the butt-high thing.

I like his coloring and love his long bangs, I'm jealous! It looks like he is very well cared for and loved and is at a really great weight. That's basically all I can force out of those pictures.

It's not all bad, horses don't need to be conformation-ally perfect and not all horses need to be super-star athletes or performance studs. I hope you guys have a wonderful time doing whatever it is you want to do!
