He's got a really short neck. Not sure about the legs, if you could get a picture of him from the front and from the rear that would tell you more. The only good picture is the middle one - the head should be up not down eating.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

His neck is really short. Maybe thick?
He's downhill and he is high in his flank.
He has a stright shoulder and is MAYBE cow hocked.
His ears are quite long.
His back is short.

Haha but I love arabians :)

I think his neck is a little too short. It seems that he stands underneath himself a bit on the front legs, thus his shoulder is straighter which will take away some smoothness. I'm not a fan of his underline at all, but he does seem a little chunky so that may be why.

I disagree with the long ear comment. I think it's a combination of bad photography (Sorry!) and the way his ear is cocked.

He's got a BEAUTIFUL face - nice distance between the eyes and nose, and with just enough flare. I don't like the extreme dishes you see one some Arabs.
Although his neck is short, it ties in nicely to his shoulder's and chest.
He's got a nice short back that Arabians should have, so if his croup is a little high, this could be due to age.
Beautiful tail set as well.
And I LOVE that face!

Overall, I think he's a lovely boy.
Congrats on your purchase, and many happy trails with him!
