My Arab/Welsh Gelding

Hi guys! I figured you should critique my boy :) Here's some details!

His name is F.F. Money Maker, his pedigree can be seen here (it's nothing fantastic lol) Ff Money Maker Arabian
He's 14.1HH, he's pretty long (72" blanket")
At the time of these pictures he's 18 (), I've owned him for 6 years now and he's never taken a lame step.
He's also the most curious horse I've ever met, for sure, and he jumps like a deer. He has free jumped to 3'9", and the highest I've jumped on his back was 3'6" when he was 14. We keep it around 3' nowadays.
These are some conformation shots I took last winter after a bareback ride, and the last one is just him being cute for good measure lol
Let me know what you think! Also I noticed in these pictures he looks like he toes out a bit in the back, but thankfully, he doesn't!

For some odd reason, it looks like he has a club-foot on his front right, it might just be a trick with the photo or something, but it seems that hoof has a much steeper angle than the other three.

Yeah, once you mentioned it I saw it too. I'm going to attach another picture that kind of shows it a little better I guess? That's my other horse in the background too :)
PS we're not too far apart! I'm in quebec also :)

It looks much better in this picture, they look the same angle, it was probably trick of the photograph.

Whereabouts in Quebec are you from?

Yeah I figured it was just a trick, I was like my goodness it would be hard for me to miss that haha! I'm actually from Nova Scotia and living in Sherbrooke (I go to Bishop's) so I only get to see my boys a few times a year, except for summer!
