    Are you looking at him, or have you bought him?

    Nice length of neck, set on a little high. Good length of back, rather straight shoulder with hip smaller than shoulder, those angles of hip and shoulder do not match. Base wide, bench kneed and in at the knee, and a little straight from hip to hock.
    Long cannons behind. Nice length and angle of pasterns. Looks like he may also have a loaded shoulder.

    I would also say he's back at the knee. In both side shots, his front legs almost curves backwards. Keep an eye on that because it can cause knee problems.
