    I like the upper half of his front end...nice shoulder, neck, head, etc. His topeline looks nice. His hindquarters are a tad weak for his body, and he's definitely front-heavy, but his angles are nice. His legs are what concern me...he's very over at the knee, and those hind legs are straight. Not conducive to working off the hindquarters and tracking up.

    However, conformation can only say so much, and I've known many a successful hunter with appalling legs. If he does his job well, and you two suit each other, that's more important. :-)
