What do you think of my yearling?

This is my one year old gelding. He is 3/4 quarter horse and 1/4 percheron. Just wondering what you think of his conformation. (Excuse what is going on in the first picture, he was being gelded.)
The last picture is of my 25+ tennessee walker. Any thoughts on his conformation as well?

Not much wrong with the yearling. He looks like he's going to be strong as a little bull and will probably make one heck of a trail horse. I also love his color! Its like a mix between a grulla and a smutty buckskin. Very cool.

The Walker looks great for his age. His neck is a smidge thick but other than that he appears to be in great shape for a senior. (I own a 24yr old appy myself. The old ones are gold)

He is going to be a little long in the back I think with possibly a weakish coupling. Other than that he looks good so far. He seems to have substantial bone and nicely set hocks. Flat knees and a good open angle at the point of shoulder (this may change).

Nice color too.

Geeze.. forgot to mention anything on the old guy. He is a substantive horse. Hocks a bit high but I like his rear for the breed. A lot of these horses have wonderful fronts and not so good behind. If the photo is of the horse at age 25, he is in great shape and is proof that a horse can last. No need to critique a horse in this good shape that has this many years on him assuming he is still sound.

Thanks all! Both of them are really sweet horses!

Really handsome colt. Looks pretty straight overall, though you can't judge too fairly at this age. I agree that he should make one solid horse ;)
