Fine for the breed. I think?

Yep, he looks like a STB to me . Lots of slow hill work would help him to build some more muscle there.

Look all right to me. . . (but I'm no expert!) Not drastically anything wrong.

Ok. Just making sure

Yep they look fine to me, not superduper muscly but still good, I agree with smrobs about the hill work for building muscle, lots of trotting is great too, and trotting up hills lol!
