    Nor from me!

    Even my 'hard keeper' TB doesn't have a rib showing on him.

    I would personally geld him.

    Don't think he is 'too ribby' at all. Seems to be at a nice weight.

    Ok. I admit that he needs a better picture for better answers because the pictures suck. Both horses getting the same amount of feed but the gelding likes to compete w the food so both are guilty of it. As for his parents, his sire is a sucessful contesting for w points. The sires owner said that he has points in reining and western pleasure as well. But ill check that out myself to make sure about the reining an pleasure. Most of the sires colts are successful in contesting, western pleasure, HUS, halter, ect..... his gelding brother is a halter champion w youth pts in ARHA. I have a half gelding to him that wins in reining, contesting, western pleasure, english halter, horsemanship, trail, ect.....I've yet to show in the breed shows but we've done it all in open and 4H shows. His neice has won it all.....halter, WP, contesting, horsemanship, showmanship, ect....we are expecting to hit the ARHA and IQHA shows this summer. The dam is a sucessful contester in open and 4H shows. His muscles yes do need to be rebuilt. He's needing exercised. He's on the Purina Junior feed.

    I would also like to see more pictures. How is his training going?

    Ray-I'll have to get out there and shine him up for a good photo. He's started to learn how to ground drive with a leather bitless hackamore. He's doing quite well. I think he'll be going to the trainers shortly.
    I look forward to see how he rides and shows before I make a decision. I think any horse should have a chance to show themselves first.
    The only thing I want in this post is opinions based off his conformation, but I do understand that there needs to be better pictures. I'm not trying to show him off, if I wanted his publicity I would of advertised him like any other person. Right now its a try period to see what he's worth as far as making the cut as a show horse, if he isn't cordinated then he'll be gelded plain and simple. But he's not aggressive so therefore he's getting a chance. We wont allow an aggressive male keep his testicles.

    If he were mine I would geld him also . With all the Studs around these days we do not need another almost good enough stallion .

    Not saying this is you ...... I believe one of our forum members created this .... its rather amusing .
