    I think he's a cutie. Love the area you are in, it's as tho you have a massive outdoor ring outside!

    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.

    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 :)

    He would be a good trail horse.

    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!
