Updated critique please...muscling and topline

Mainly I'm more interested in muscling and top line lol for that is what I've been having the most problems with...but feel free to critique on his build also. To me, he is perfect. From what I've heard (from other places and from people) is that he has fairly good conformation, but sometimes I don't think so lol.

So let me know what you all think.
Note: I could NOT get a back leg photo due to he wouldn't hold still. If I turn to go behind him...he followed lol...silly boy
Also note: he was standing kinda funny on his front end...so he's not that camped under in front.

(I'm not sure if this was taken at the right angle or not....one of them was not taken at the right angle...one was taken a slight wrong angle...and another one was good...can't remember which one lol)

Also I think this toeing out is more of the way he's standing...for other shots he isn't.

Also, I was thinking of doing some showing with him...mainly just showmanship and obedience...but if I were to do say WP or reining or something (using those for examples) what do you think he'd be better suited for?

Also his back...swayed or still no topline? I have NOT been working him in a proper frame...I've been doing neck-reining work so his head is allowed to be where ever for hte time being until we get it perfect through all paces.

All I can see is cow hocked a bit. He doesnt look sway backed at all.

I don't think he's sway backed at all. He is just bum high. ;) No other critiques though...I'm not the best with picking apart conformation.

No sway back? Good whew lol

How about a topline? He have one? Or not lol...I'm thinking not but who knows lol

Anyone else want a jab at a critique....muscle wise and build wise?

In these pictures, is it just me or does something look off with his neck?
His neck is fine in real life and doesn't look funny...but in the picture it does...but I can't quiet grasp what it is

His neck looks a little thick maybe? Lol.
