Please critique Sargent Pepper

This is Sarge, a +/-13 year old TB gelding. He is an ex police horse. When he was in the police, he was involved in a serious car accident, but that was about 6 years ago, and he is fine now. I don't own him, but I ride him. This pics are from a little while ago, when he was a little thin due to an illness earlier in the year, but he has picked up weight, I'll take more pics when I can...

Please excuse his leg sticking out in the front pic, that's his definition of standing square lol.

Hi there Love Story!

This isn't the horse you were riding before, is it? YOu had a bay before, if I remember correctly.
This guy is grand in a gawky, gangly kind of way. He looks older than her is, but maybe that's due to the accident and the illness. He is over at the knees and has a huge wither. Has a really nice face and if he takes care of you, what do you care what he looks like? Is he a good boy?

He does look a little older than 13, but otherwise looks like a total sweetheart (: Weight wise, he looks better than my TB.. I'm jealous lol.

Sarge is an awesome horse, very well behaved. I'll ask his owners how old he is, I'm not 100% sure. Thank you for your opinions :)

He could do with more muscling, especially on his topline & butt.
He is high in the withers & slightly sickled & cow-hocked in the back.
I agree with the others that he does look older than 13 though...

I agree with the others, he is over at the knee, cow and sickle hocked. He has high withers and a short croup. He looks like a sweet horse.
