Please critique my horse's conformation

I just got him in December, and he's starting to shed out. He's a TB who is just about 4 years old, and I know he's really out of shape right now. However, I would love to hear the good and the bad.

Sorry he's not squared up, but it's hard to get good pics by myself.

The first picture was taken today, and the second picture was him last summer with his previous owner.

Not too bad. Needs muscle. His legs are sure long & not sure, but it looks like he stands rather close together in the back end...

I think I'm getting an optical illusion / interference from his overlapping hind legs in the photo. That's throwing my assessment off balance. Really can't find anything major to fault him on, besides lack of condition (needs both fat and muscle).

Nothing really jumps out. He's a cutie. Put some muscle on him and I bet he'll be a nice mover.

Yes, he most certainly needs some weight put on, and muscle conditioning. It has been a long, hard winter here. Do you think he might do well down the road as a jumper?

I'm no confo expert, but any reasonably put together horse can jump. I'm sure he'll let you know what he finds to be fun soon enough. Expose him to everything you can think of and you'll find where his talent is. For now, while you're putting that weight on him, get him walking around on gentle hills to help him build up his engine.

I was told on another website that he has unsturdy spider legs. Do you agree?
