*first picture is the day i bought him in feb. of 2011. and the next three are more recent pix

hello everyone ! my boy is a 4 yr old appy appendix . ive had him a little over a year now, i ride or lunge him almost everyday. he was weened from his mother too early so he was an undernourished colt (much before i got him). i love him so much and would just like to hear some opinions on him.

how are his legs? is he well proportioned ? conformation ?

also, many people i know have young horses, but then look as if they are a finished 9 yo horse as far as weight and muscle mass, however, my boy mack is still slim ( he is HEALTHY) but he isnt broad in the chest at all, and his neck is quite narrow. actually it got thick and then over the last two months i feel it has narrowed out again :/ nothing has changed so i dont know what to do.
any ideas how to make his front end match up to his hind ? gain and keep muscle on him ?

i think he's quite the handsome fellow! not exactly the best confo shots but he looks to be decently put together and in good weight/condition for his age. :)

Hes got nice colour.I feel he is tied in a bit high and his croup is a bit slopey,but all in all,not bad.Wish I could see more of his legs.You could work on his topline.It looks to me like he has bowed his right tendon at some point.A slow bow.
