I cant help with conformation or anything, but I LOVE his color/marking. Hopefully someone else can give you some better insight, but i do know a picture squared up and from the side would be easier for others to give you critique

Need a better photo. Looks solidly built with adequate legs and FAT, but that is all I can see.

beautiful horse! he looks a bit out of shape, but with some riding, and training, he can get back into shape. looks to have nice legs, cant really tell on conformation. nice neck, small head, good conformation, from what i can see.

Looks very alert, pretty head, legs look straight, might be a bit cow hocked (but it could be the pic) he's a wee chunky monkey lol nothing some training can't fix and a proper diet =)

He is super cute. He looks real solid, and I like his calm, alert expression.

I really like him too. It looks like he has good sturdy legs, he's at a good weight, he seems to have a good temperament also. If he's what you want I don't see anything wrong with him.

Oooooooo I love!!! His confirmation looks great from what I can tell at that angle and I like him a bit chunky lol once it turns into muscle he'll be quite the looker! Love the way he holds himself and his expression and of course I'm a bit partial to his markings
