Very pretty, but I wouldn't call him perfect. I think the first (dappled chestnut) looking horse is close to perfect.
This guy (the black horse) almost looks a tad roach backed to me. It might just be that his back is really short, which normally is good, but there is something about his back I don't really like. Maybe it's just an optical illusion. I know I have taken a lot of photos of my own horses that make them look like they have flaws that they don't really have. His neck/throatlatch area is also a bit thick.
Gorgeous horse, I just don't know if he is the best of the best.
As far as Quarter Horses go (because I don't have time to look for other breeds right now) I really like the build of Dunbars Gold. http://www.dunbarsgold.com/
