What do you think about my hubby's Paint?

This is my hubby's baby, Chaco. He is a 3 year old registered paint. His grandsire was Blue Max. Please tell me what you think about him. He still has a little growing and filling out to still do. He is 14.3 HH. We got him in March of 09'. So we haven't had him very long but my hubby finished out his training and breaking. He still had a buck in him for the first gallop of every ride. He finally got over that. He is a big puppy dog. He is almost a pain in the rear. But any comments on him would be appreciated. Thanks

His neck is the perfect length for the breed, but I'm scared it may be attached a tiny bit too low for good balance. But his chest isn't overly large, he has a pleasant expression and nice, alert ears. His croup is not too short, so he should have good power. His legs appear to have quite good , straight conformation.
Overall, he should be a pleasure to ride with and shouldn't have many problems.

Oh, and I forgot to add, he is beautiful, cute, handsome, and pretty much everything I would look for in a horse!

Imo he has great confo, the only thing i would say needs to be worked on are his hooves, he seems to have VERY long toes, especially on his rear feet, it seems he has to stand a lil funny to accommodate them... Other than that he looks great, with some work and a lil more weight hell ba a stunner!

I love his color! I second that, he stands a little goofy to accommodate his longer toes. With a good farrier/trim and some more weight he'll be a gorgeous "pain in the rear" for you! :)

Thanks everyone for you responses. He is very beautiful especially when he stands with his head up instead of down. He was bred for western pleasure so he hangs his head down most of the time. We have his feet trimmed every 6 weeks. He does have funny looking feet but our farrier called them "pear" shaped. Instead of being all rounded they are more oval shaped. So I assure you that his feet are in good condition and trimmed properly. But he is very smooth for a Quarter Horse. We have been riding him a lot trying to finish him out but right now he is fat as a cow since he hasn't been rode in about a month. It has been so rainy here the last month that it is almost impossible to ride. But yeah he is my hubby's pride in joy. Sometimes I think he likes Chaco better than he does me. Thanks Ya'll

i just have to say that your farrier is wrong. it isnt the shape that is the problem, it is the angles. his heel is too short and his toe is too long. this is going to cause a lot of stress on his tendons. next time tell him too take more toe off.
