He's a gorgeous horse. The only thing that really stands out to me are his feet - they look very long through the toes, and could stand to be evened out a bit more with the heel.
It looks like he might toe out slightly on the off hind, and his throatlatch and neck are a little thick. Pasterns are a tad long

Other than that, he's really quite nice.

I would agree with the foot comment. Maybe have the farrier round out his toes a bit. But other than that he's built extremely well. I like the wide chest (that means nice heart and lungs) and what a gorgeous color!!! Hehe and such a cute name

What a lovely looking boy!

Hooves could definitely use some 'tweaking'...I don't like the angle that they are coming off at...too much toe, for sure. That can cause alot of unnecessary pressure on the pastern, right up into the knees...etc, etc...

Structurally he looks to be pretty well balanced, although it's hard to tell for sure, because you don't have an adequate side shot.

JDI said what I was thinking, I just wanted to pop in and say that he is gorgeous and looks like a really nice ride. :)

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Agree with the feet and pasterns but otherwise, he's absolutely gorgeous and if you're ever in need of a home for him *cough*...
