Exclamation Please critique!

Hello all! I just got this guy from Texas a few weeks ago. He is my replacement cutter. He is extremely sweet. He is a 7 year old red roan quarter horse. I would like ctitique on his confirmation. I only have side shots at the moment, but I think I have some sort of good photos for judging confirmation. Here is a video of him cutting too. Thank you!

Very nice horse! He did a great job in the cutting. His rider looked a little large for him. I think the horse is a little bit narrow of chest and a bit loose coupled. It means his chest isn't as big as it could be. Not huge on stamina. But his balance is excellent and he is put togehter really nice. I 'd take him in a heartbeat!!!

He's a nice horse. The only things I see are that he's s bit butt-high and his back end looks off to me for some reason. I also think maybe his neck could use something like more muscle.

Thank you for replying. May I ask what loose coupled means? He has been off work for awhile so he will definatly need to build muscle.

I like everything about him but his neck. The underline of it is a tad ewe-necked.

He needs some building of his neck muscles. The thing I noticed the most was that he has kind of a boxy head. It isn't as refined as our other quarter horses heads.
