Critique Welsh Stallion please!

This is my welsh mountain pony stallion. Tell me what you think of him, some of these pictures are older so he looks fatter/smaller, more/less muscled, etc. Do the best you can, thanks!

He has a hay belly and I think his pasterns are short, but he is a very cute boy/man! Lol

He's very cute, and has a lovely expression on his face.

What I like:
Fairly thick boned
Attractive head
Nice pasterns

What I dislike:
He toes out front and back
Fairly upright shoulder
He has like, no butt compared to his shoulders.
Heavy cresty(studdy) upside down neck
He looks like he is heavy on the forehand.

Overall I like him, but I like him better as a gelding. This is not being mean, just my opinion.

As above I think if he was gelded earlier he wouldnt be so solid infront, making him a bit more in proportion.
And im sorry but the top pic does nothing for him! Haha he looks much better in the pics bellow it!
But build up that back end and lose a bit of that belly and he will be a very nice pony =D

Needs much more muscling overall. Don't really see anything that leads me to believe he should be a stallion - would make a cute gelding, though. [=

Oh my he is adorable :) I love Welsh ponies. I will agree, nothing I would leave a stallion but he'd make a cute gelding! As said he toes out in both the front and the back, his butts a little high, un-balanced looking etc.. Very handsome face.

I agree with the following. He SHOULD be gelded. Cute pony though.

Yes, we are planning on maybe leasing him out to someone who has time for him and could train him, as we have almost no time. From his pedigree/type of welsh that he is it seems a lot of the stallions have heavy necks and the fact that he has no exercise is partially why his bum looks sos mall, he has no muscle. Though his bum being higher is an interesting fact, now that's it been pointed out it seems a lot more obvious to me then before. And with the hoof/feet problems that is a slight result of not getting his hoofs done properly when he was a yearling/at his old barn. It has actually been corrected a lot more since the photos were taken but he will always have it, and I think he may have had the toeing out already when he was young but no one ever attempted to even make it better, quite the opposite. We are planning on maybe breeding him a bit more since his daughter turned out so well, we are planning on maybe breeding him with some lighter/taller mares. Thanks for the critique!

If he were mine, and I was dead set on breeding him, I'd look for a SUPER sport or quarter pony and steer clear of anything with arab or morgan blood or anything that has a U/sway looking back (like Arab, Morgan, and other saddle seat horses natrually often have).

I personally wouldn't breed him at all.
