Possible new buy

I've found someone who wants Rosie as a childs horse. She would only be around the corner from where I keep her now, and I know the person personally and know the little girl who would be riding her.

Now, here is the link to the horse that I'm looking at to replace my little girl.

Tennessee Walking Horse For Sale, Virginia, Locust Grove

He is only 2 yo, but I also know the people who have both the dam and sire on premises. I actually saw him when he was only 2 days old. They did the imprinting on him when he was first born, and have handled him in one way or another everyday.

What do you guys think?

That is not a good age to judge on appearance. Very gangly looking. Doesn't do a thing for me but in a yr or 2 might be a good looking horse

He has the classic 'skinny' young TWH look. Their all narrow and scrawny looking for the first two to three years or so When it comes to TWH, I look at the parents. If their well built, you betcha their offspring will be well built too. It almost seems like the TWH breed is cursed with the 'ugly duckling' phase. Even the TWH cross colt I just bought has that look to him!

I just sold a MFT colt who looked HORRIBLE for the first three years of his life. If I didn't know any better, I would have said he's a TWH gelding. He was beautiful with his markings, but he was so darned narrow and gangly looking! Now as a four year old he's filled out stunningly, people who bought him want to take him into the ring :)

Yeap - he has that big head look which he will hopefully grow into. The more important question is how will he gait. Have you ridden the parents and like their gait? Are you going to train him or someone else?

I have ridden the mother, and she has a WONDERFUL gait. The owner wouldn't let me ride the stud because there were mares in season around. He did ride him though, and I didn't see any type of a bounce or sway at all. I'm still thinking about him, but I'm not sure myself. Oh and both of his parents are built very well.

I would be doing the training myself with the help of a real trainer.
