Iride: I agree with you in maybe settling for an older horse, but why don't you think the two are the same? It's hard to tell unless he's cleaned up and see for sure if we think he is or not. I do have to say, I was curious as to if he was or not either...just wanted to see your opinion as to why you though they were two different things.

As for the horse, he's cute, but I want to see some clean pics of him to see the REAL him! I hope he works out for you, if you decide to get him that is. And also, seek professional help if you don't know what you're doing because issues will only become worse.

I've never seen a horse's hooves change from white to black......is that even possible?

Pechos, a paint horse does not change it's color pattern as it grows nor does it loose the white sox that you can see in the picture or does his white hooves change to black. All of that is fact.

For opinion, look at the fact that the colt was at a first class show and was spit and polished - hardly the same conditions as it is now. No, it is definitely not the same horse.

Lastly, the only positive thing the seller can show off is that a cat can make donuts (whatever that is) on his back and she can get underneath him.

Oh, and it's doubtful that a 3 year old at 15.2 (if he really is 15.2) is going to get another 2" of growth.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Yeah, that's not the same horse.. They're lying. If your bent on buying him I'd get a drug test done first. Because if they'd lie to you about that.. then it's possible they'd go to the lengths to drug him too.

I'm going to get her to give him a bath,maybe she grabbed the wrong baby photo she has a couple palominos. if it's not the same horse, I still want him, he is a very good horse, regardless, I have ridden him twice now... I don't want an old horse.. It's not like I don't have a trainer.... but he is very well trained. Also I've been riding since I was 4, so I can pretty much handle it, I ride crazy arabs now. the the arena show shot( it is a local park, I know by background) it is very sandy and possible he has sand of his hoofs.. dusty sand (I don't like that park for that reason.) but thanks for insulting me saying I cant ride/ don't need a 3 year old. Maybe it is a different horse, who know, but we have dealt with the seller before and she is a very nice honest person, so thanks for calling her a liar. everyone is so negative on this site. can anyone just be freaking happy, or is everyone just a critic.

until I can teach him to jump, I'm training dressage. Maybe bring him to a few shows this summer... he has really good natural movement, the way he caries himself really impressed me. just stays round and forward, although he is a little lazy, I had to make him go, but once I got him going he was doing so well! he definitely isnt push button. So dressage, jumping( once older.. 5-6 start). He is an amazing trail horse already.

Also he isn't 3 until June technically....he is going to need more training of course, but he is really the best 3 year old I've ever seen/ridden.

I'll have to agree with you...usually folks on here are quick to jump on a bandwagon and rude things are said and folks get hurt....BUT...this time, I honestly think folks were just looking out for your best interest. I know if I had been the one to post those two photos, I would have wanted it pointed out to me if someone didn't think the two horses were the one and the same. I've been around horses all my life. I spent 10 years training and showing western pleasure, but it doesn't mean that I can't slip up and miss something.

Anyways...I honestly don't think any offense was meant towards you or the seller.

Good luck in whatever you chose to do.

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'm going to get to the bottom of the picture problem either way... BUT he is a good horse, the other horses are well mannered and look good, besides the unruly 10 month old filly, they are all sweet calm, gentle horses.. the filly needs to be up under you like a small dog.

Sorry, but I'm gonna have to disagree. (And I really hate doing that so sorry again.) But I've had a lot of horses gain 2 inches between their third and fourth year. A lot. Especially if they're uneven between the front and back.

That said, this looks like a different horse to me, too. Curious to see what he (she?) looks like cleaned up. Too soon to say, IMO.

I hope the OP has fun with her new horse whatever the outcome. How exciting!!!! I remember when I bought my Bippy home as a weanie...that was nearly six years ago and I still recall how excited I was.
