Something about the way his barrel ties into his hind end bothers me, but I can't put my finger on what it is.

LOVE his front end and he has an adorable face.

There's just that back end... :-/ I could be seeing things, though.

I don't know. Maybe it's just because I'm so used to the big draft butt now. lol Especially in the shot where he's kind of walking away, his butt just seems small/weak compared to that powerful front end. *shrug*

Same lol his back end had me looking real close at this pic to see what was going on =P I love him tho. Maybe close to being downhill. Or just a really weak rump.

His hooves are tiny, scary tiny at least to my eye.

His withers are very swept back... I don't know if this makes sense and if there's an actual name for it or whether it's a "problem" or not, but his withers seem to "end" way farther back on his back than usual.

I think his neck needs more muscling too.

Overall, though, he looks pretty impressive. He looks like he's in good condition.
