    These aren't the best photos to critique, but I'll give it a go!

    Your horse has a nice sloping shoulder, sturdy-looking legs, and a friendly eye. The neck looks a bit short, and the throatlatch area could be cleaner. He (is it a he?) could use a bit more muscling in the hind end, but overall I think you have a pretty nice horse here.

    Yes he is a gelding, his name is thunder. And yeah I have been trying to get more muscel on him.

    Thank you! :)

    Big/good boned.
    Big strong shoulders. Love his colors, neck is a bit short. More work outs
    Would be great.

    He is a really interesting horse. Looks to be perhaps a QH / draft cross. Is that right? Some draft crosses get the long back and short legs, yours got the long legs and short back. He has really good bone overall and is really a strong looking horse. His neck is short with a thick throatlatch. In the under saddle photo his neck looks a bit overdeveloped in the lower muscle (the underside of the neck). This might indicate he rides braced against the bit and tries to put his head in the air and go around with a very stiff neck, resisting the rider's pull. I wonder why you are riding him in a curb bit (with leverage) and then in an English saddle? Not that that is against the law or anything.

    He is a really nice looking horse.

    Thank you, I ride him english & western. I had been jumping & my daddy needed me to get the cattle out of the field (and he does better with curb bit when driving cattle for some reason idk why lol) so I just changed bridles on him real fast. (took this picture afterwards) and yes his father was a reg QH & his mother a reg. Belgium. :)

    And when riding for the most part he keeps his head/neck tucked in. Unless he gets excited then he trows his head around. Lol he's a very great horse, I love him lots <3

    He sounds like a champ! You are lucky.
