Paint Conformation?

I am thinking about doing halter shows with my APH Gelding Cody, and I was wondering what you guys think about his conformation... I don't know what to look for, but I think he is perdy






I hope these pics are okay. :)

Not bad, though more pics would be great ;)
I like his overall build, though he stands a little under himself. His back legs could be a tad straighter, but nothing to worry about ;) Beautiful guy in my op

It might just be the angle of the picture, but he appears to have a fairly long back. I think part of it might just be angle because my mare looks like a daschund if I don't take a picture straight on.

It's more in proportion to the rest of his body, not other objects. From the end of his withers to his croup should be 1/2 the length of his entire underline.
