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 kinda agree, I think it's cause his standing under himself a little... but yeah :P

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.

Arg I keep looking at it lol not weak it's just too small! You sure he's OTT lol

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.
