High withers, dips behind the withers, croup is slightly steep and should be longer. Sufficient angulation front and rear, upper arm should be longer. Hard to see his feet the way he is standing. I would like to see a better head and stronger lower jaw. Eyes could be darker. Color is OK.

Thank you!!

Any idea what causes that dip behind his withers? Here is another picture where you can see his feet.

Failure *is* success, if you learn from it.

I would like to see slightly tighter feet. Funny, this is something the judge never commented on at the show.

Try stacking him a bit more naturally without the head up so high. When the head is up in such an unnatural position it tends to cause the back to sag or drop (does the same in horses when the position is forced instead of developed through training). He also is not built to carry his head that high.
