    My new Free Horse! Please critique

    I picked up my new horse on Saturday. His new name is Oliver. I wanted to see what you guys thought of him. I got him for free from a local racetrack where the trainer did not want to pay to ship him back out of state. He is however unraced. He is a 6 year old Thoroughbred gelding.

    I know the pictures aren't the greatest but if you could give me a basic critique I would greatly appreciate it!

    I thought he was a QH from his body and I agree, downhill.

    I know he is built like a QH. He's 16'3 and has a huge butt for not being all that well muscled. Below is a picture of his sire (Stormy Atlantic) and below that his grandmother (Terlingua). I wonder where he got it from :)

    I don't have any set plans at this point. He doesn't move like a hunter at all so that's pretty much out. I just got him on Saturday but from watching his movement, he will most likely excel in jumpers and perhaps dressage although I don't know how he will do with that thick shortish neck for dressage. We will do whatever he is best suited for as I have dabbled and enjoy all.

    LOL judging from the responses, maybe we should aim for western pleasure :)
