Honest Critique Please... Be Brutal!!!

Alright. So Jerry is a "rescue horse". He was very skinny when he first came, and he needed a lot of training. I fattened him up (for a time he was overweight. Hehe.), but now he's at the perfect weight (or so says my vet). I want your critique on his confirmation. He is 14 years old, and probably an Arabian cross. Please tell me the truth, but try to be nice about it.

(Sorry if the pictures aren't that great... )

For any real conformation critique. You’ll need to take pictures of him standing square on level ground. And front and rear shot standing square also.

Yeah, I know the pics aren't the best, but is there anything that you can tell from them?

The only thing that catches my eye is his back pasterns seem to slope a lot. . . He is a nice looking horse, in my opinion.

It actually looks like just the one hind pastern that is weak. Perhaps if you can get some better shots with him standing relatively square with all four feet on the ground, we can better tell. But I'm looking at the one with you standing him in the arena, and it's just the left hind that is weak.

Other than that rear leg, he is a really good looking horse from what I can tell. I like the more 'uphill build' in a horse...usually will make collection a bit easier, as they're 'inclined' to the rear...or would that be declined? Hahaha. At any rate, he's a nicely built horse atleast from those pics.

He's for sure in a good weight. And his shoulder looks little too steep. Is he smooth to ride? He's nice looking boy - he does look like having some arab in him. How tall is he?

He's VERY smooth, so we also think he has some saddlebred in him. He's probably about 15-15.2 hh... i'm not quite sure.
