Smile Does my pony have conformation?

Hi everyone. Don't think i'm to cheesy or posh for asking this, but.....Do you think my pony has good conformation for a 4 yr old?
His profile:

Grr, I can't see the pics!

They take a little while to load :)

The pictures are huge! :) Try getting some of him where he is standing square on a level surface, that will help us determine what his conformation is like better. He's cute little guy and seems very well behaved for a 4 year old!

Oh wow, you should resize those pics next time (or even this time if you still can).

Overall I really like him. The pics are quite fitting on my computer screen but he looks well balanced and cute.

Not the best pics to see :P

As said, the pictures are big and thus hard to see without scrolling around :)
And if you could get some on level ground, side view, (more like the first picture) that would be better.

From the pictures, I think he has a nice dainty head with large eyes and a handsome look. His neck set is a decent height, could stand to be a little cleaner. He could use more chest muscling. His legs are strait, his feet look solid. His back is a little long. I'd like to see a touch more weight on him to help bulk him out and get a little more muscling going which will come with age too :)

Thanks everyone! Yeah, soz about the pics! They came out MUCH bigger than I expected, haha. This winter Spider has gotten REALLY thin, so, we r trying to fatten him up. It's hard for us, cause we have to agist and we don't get up there everyday. And, the grass in the paddock is getting low. But, the pastures down the bottom (they live on a kinda hill) are getting some nice green grass, so he will be moved down there. We r giving him hay everytime we go there (and his hard food).

He's cute little guy and seems very well behaved for a 4 year old!
GeminiJumper, the reason he is so well behaved because we started training him when he was 2 (i know, that's a bit young. But, we were told he was 4) and then we let him out to pasture to grow when we found out. And, they say, Horses never forget what they've been taught! Oh and plus, he was trained Nov last year.

Thanks again everyone. Sorry that the pics are really big!

The above picture is the only usable one for critiquing. If you want a good critique then get pictures from the front and back as well. And make sure his head if facing forward.

And smaller!

That said, he does look really nice. He's got a good overall look and everything ties in nicely. If you can get better pictures, people will be able to tell you more.
