Please critique his confo..

This is rocket you've probably seen him on the forum before I would really appreciate some feed back on his confo.
He's 6yrs old OTTB he's basically he's just going to be for fun, but I would like to do some dressage and jumping with him. He still needs a lot of training.
Well here he is tear him apart thanks.

Well, to start with he is sickle-hocked in the back as well as cow-hocked. He's set quite "forward" & he lacks some muscling on his hindquarters.
His front feet are also spaced far apart.
With time he will develope more muscling on his topline, which should help to make his neck & head more proportionate (though this is not a confo flaw, just a lack of muscling on the rest of his frame).

Thanks I saw the cow-hocked thing. BUt other than that I don't know much about confo but I wanted opinions.
He's definitely lacking in muscle cause he was about 300lbs underweight when I got him..

His neck meets his chest quite low, his back feet don't look very straight but that could just be how he was standing, and maybe a little high in back but again its only in the one pic it looks like that, but he does have a nice slope to his shoulder, and he has nice cannon bones too! But every horse has thier flaws and yours are nothing that are too big of a deal, I say he looks pretty good :)
