Possible Horse...

Hey y'all! I haven't been on in forever, but hey to those who remember me! Haha anyways, I'm finally getting a horse! I just have to find one I like :)

I'm rather fond of this guy. He's a 9 year old sorrel Quarter Horse. His great-grandsires are Conclusive and Ima Cool Skip. He's broken and can be finished in any discipline. I've still got some questions to ask, but I just want some confo critique. These aren't the best pictures for critique, but do what you can!

INTRODUCING....Mixons Wimpy Sparkle







I have another full body shot on my home computer.
Thanks y'all!

I don't see butt high, I see a Quarter Horse butt!

The only thing on him that stands out to me, that I am not a fan of, is his neck just after the withers it dips and looks weak. It could be the photos also. I like his neck set and he appears to have a clean throatlatch, pretty face, kind eyes etc.. Handsome boy.

Yeah, the neck, it's called a ewe neck.
He's looks doownhill in the way that his shoulders and front end look heavier built than his rear.
His pasterns may be a bit weak and I'm thinking his hocks turn in.

Pretty boy though, love the head on that guy

What's his HYPP status? Hard to say from these photos but he looks like he has a straight shoulder and that his hip isn't in proportion with his shoulder. I wouldn't be too worried about him being downhill as it doesn't seem to be excessive.

Thanks so much guys! I know, his head is STUNNING! That's one thing that I really liked about him. Do you think that getting more muscle on him would possibly fix some of these problems? Would any of his problems affect his riding capability? If so, how?

I'd pass. He's got a ewe neck and he's butt high. He does have a nice head, but unless you plan on riding that, it's the only thing about him that looks good.

Oh he does have an ewe neck. Thanks y'all, I would've never seen that.
I think I might pass on this one because there's a chance I might be getting an OTTB. Thanks for all of your help everybody!
