Please critique stallion

I am interested in purchasing this pony stallion. This is the only full body shot the owner sent, she needed to step out the front just one more.

He is a registered TWH gaited pony stallion

Well firstly, just from the video he's not too bad. His girth/depth of chest could be deeper but his overall structure looks nice. Looks more like a Morgan to me, honestly lol. Nice horse.

Just throwing it out there... the lady handling him certainly needs to lay off him though. After all that jerking it wouldn't surprise me if he's a bit touchy, especially around the head.

The horse is cute enough. I don't know what to look for in TWH. He's a bit fat.
The lady lunging him,, gosh, I haven't seen such a poor example of how to lunge in a long time. Hard to watch. REally bad lunging. Half the time I couldn't figure out what she wanted from that horse, and neither could he.

Ugh, that lungeing is a joke. Horrible. I'd like to see him handled correctly and see what he's like.

From what you can see he is cute, but I don't know much about TWH's. The lunging bothered me too, it would also lead me to question learned bad behaviors or problems he may have due to mishandling.

Yeah he is cute but you may be going through some major training issues with how he is currently being handled. I had to stop the video she was annoying me and he looked as annoyed. It kinda stuns me that she would put that video up for the world to see.

It really depends what you want him for and what you are going to breed him to. IMO he would make a better gelding then stallion. He is pretty well balanced in body his shoulder being smaller then his hip. He looks straight in his shoulder which carries through his entire front end and movement. I like his back end and back. His neck ties in low and is thick. Its really hard to judge though with that video.

Ahhhh! I thought I put up the photobucket, that vid is horrid, this is the photo where he is stood too far under himself.

I am not too afraid of the training issues, I am almost glad he was never broke to ride from this lady. Anyway, retry!
