I wasn't to impressed with the qh today, it rode decent and you could tell it had all the basics down and such. Tell me what you all think about it? Thats my wife handling him in the pics ;)


Also to me here its shoulders looked really straight and it had some really tall withers.

All I can say is that he sure looks like a good natured guy to ride decent with that saddle right down on his withers like that.

He doesn't have much substance to him for a larger rider, though he does seem to be pretty badly underweight and has zero topline.

I don't know, if I had the time and opportunity, he seems like he might be a nice horse to buy, feed up, put some handle on, and then re-sell...if the price was right.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Your exactly right on the good natured part, he was broke to ride for sure lol. He was neck reined as well and I mean would really move off the rein well. Their reason for his poor weight was the just moved to ms from lousiana and he had to stay at their property in Lousiana for 3 weeks while they were moved here. Lol I am just going to go with my gut here and say its from poor upkeep and lack of care as a whole. He needs at least 100 pounds of body weight to be back to a normal state. Think his withers will fill out and not look so bad??

BTW, he would cost about 300 if I decide to get him.

They should fill in some, though he'll never be mutton withered .

IMHO, he'd be worth $300 if he's sound and healthy.

I think so too, and in a month or so when he is filled out and worked some more, I wouldnt find it far fetched to sell him for 500 or so! He has a good handle on him so with some cleaning up and feed he might make a good trail mount. He is only 7 years old too!

He looks like the kind of horse one wants to take home and feed and give attention to. He doesen't look as large as advertised (15.3) but it is hard to tell from a photo sometimes. If he is good natured and healthy he would probably make someone a nice trail horse...or who knows what abilities he could have. Hopefully someone will be good to him and he will serve someone well.
