Out of curiosity, did you make him stand all stretched out? If so then that's fine, but if not.. he looks stocked up?
Overall he looks like a nice horse with straight legs and a neck that joins to the shoulder nicely. His croup is a tad long, but certainly not terrible. Little bit of a pointy hip, but that's not bad either.
He looks well-put together for certain levels of just about any job :)

ps I'm also a sucker for a nice solid color with chrome, like this guy :)

he's a pretty boy! =D

the only thing I noticed right away was the way his neck is connected to his withers. it creates a ewe neck affect since his neck is on the lower side, which also makes his widepipe area bulge.

pretty dog by the way!

and he could lose a few pounds, lol.

Thanks Grendel!! Yes he has always been weaker in that area of the neck, no matter what excercises i do, i cant seem to get muscel there... Any ideas??

Oh thanks, the dogs called Buster... where ever the horse is, buster is right behind/beside them hehe, i acually dont think i have a photo with out Buster in it... hehe.

I really dont think he is overweight... not for showing.. maybe for endurance or the high energy sports, but i dont think he is dangerousally overweight... do u think?? :(

no, I don't think he's "over weight" but he could tone up and lose just a few pounds.

lots of stretching will make his topline stronger.
