conformation opinions please
 
This is my 4.5 year old Thoroughbred gelding. I would love some opinions on his conformation!

Ooooh nice boy! I love his legs, & shoulders. His hoof angles seem a bit low though, but I am no expert. Nice back & rear. Throatlatch is a bit thick, but not overly, he has a fine neck as well. He looks very well cared for and in excellent shape.

Thank you!

Yes, hoof long and low. Also a tiny bit post legged in back. Tiny.
REally nice looking horse overall. Great neck and shoulder.

Great conformation, but typical Thoroughbred feet.

I am with Waresbear - Very nice shoulder! I bet he is a nice ride. Agreed with everyone regarding is feet angles... If I was going to nit pick I'd like his tail set to be a hair highter, back a slight fuzz shorter and throatlatch to be a tad cleaner but you have a nicely put together gelding there. Really handsome!

thanks guys! I totally agree! the pic of me sitting on him backwards was from when I first got him...his feet were enormous!!!!! They looked horrible...they grow really big really fast...i put shoes on him this summer and that really helped make those feet look better! We have to really cut his toes back to help keep them looking better.
