All grown up....

He's all grown up now, so feel free to critique away. Don't worry...I have thick skin & already know his structural short comings.
Here is the first photos I posted for critique of Ark. He was about 4 months old.



Here he is at almost 3 yrs old.

Critique?!?!?
What a beautiful/ handsome friend!
We ALL have our imperfections; who the heck am I to judge?
You have a great "grown up" family member!
Congrats!

Thanks for the comments.
If anyone has any opinions on his conformation, please post them. Even though I "think" I know his faults, I may not see them all, lol

Is it possible to get a better stack out of him?

I think he is stunning but some may want/need a better stack to property critique him.

I know it's not perfect, but it's what I was able to get by myself, lol
I'll try to wrangle up some help & get a proper stack this week.

A larger stacked photo would help too. That one is very small.

I noticed his hips are definitely higher than his withers, now this might be due to his positioning at the time of the photos, but since two photographs point this out it might be his natural stance. I bet that could be fixed with a proper stack.

Gorgeous male. I'd love to see a stacked shot, though, to get a better idea.
