I am no good at critiquing confirmation but what sticks out to me is they way his hindquarters are.... i dunno... weird.

He also has a vey large barrel/belly and then very tiny rear...

only had him two months. so.. working on it. He was pulled off track, took off shoes, and thrown in a grass pasture with pretty much no food for awhile. starting to get weight back on him and muscle back up.

and he is 3... will be 4 in april

There's something very wonky about his back end. No amount of work or food is going to make it look properly conformed, although getting him fit and muscled will help.

Even though all of mine are out of shape, their basic bone structure and conformation are good. You can't change bone, only muscle.

the pics provided aren't that great for giving any critiques, imo. i do however notice that his back into his hips/croup is very odd. idk how that translates to his movement/rideability but he just looks... odd to me. i do like his face though. :)

It looks to me like the conformation of his rear is causing him to be extremely heavy on his forehand, and sort of 'dragging' the rest of his body along with his front. I don't see him being able to collect and really get under himself very well for that reason.

He looks really short coupled.

When you first got him...YIKES! lol I'm glad he's getting better though!

He's got a big head hahaha but so does my Sunny and it doesn't seem to bother him much, except when it comes to finding bridles that fit ;)

His hindquarters are a bit wonky but no horse is perfect! I liked what I saw in the video (it really made me miss my round pen :( ) and he seems nice and chunky now!
What do you use him for?
