    Let us know if you do. It takes a couple weeks or so to get the results, but if he comes up N/O, update us! It's nice to have references to very minimally marked frame-positive horses.

    Haha you guys will know if I take him home, his little face will be spamming up the forum every ten seconds. It would definitely be interesting to see, a 'plain' breeding stock paint that isn't technically so solid under there. ;)

    Would you keep him a colt?

    If he turned out to be sound of mind and body, perhaps. I have shown 2 APHA horses before, a colt and a filly, but both were colored and as I understand it, stock APHA has to go in a seperate, harder to find class and can't go as far, which is disappointing. Then again, I don't put much value in some winning halter horses that are too weirdly built to even ride, beefcakes with a pretty face and not much else. I know his sire was a a halter horse that did well enough in shows, but he is also 16 years old and is a safe riding horse these days so he probably has a brain and no glass hooves. Hopefully the dam has nice lines.

    Basically in a paint I want brain, diamond hooves, muscle, and (no offense to the English riders with paints) a background of success in western events, beyond halter. Or at least a capable, dependable ranch horse line. I've done a little of everything so I want something that can keep up, mentally and physically, if I go the paint route again. I had more issues out of my filly than my colt!

    Wow that was an excessive explanation.

    I'm going to look at him tomorrow if everything works out. His sire is on the premises, so I can get better pictures of both. I can't wait to see him!

    Half siblings and heights they reached







    His owner has a bad back and has been unable to work with him lately so he was a bit fresh. We put him in the round pen and let him work out his sillies, and when he was calm and ready to behave, he was fine. A little mouthy, but never tried teeth. Still something I'd like to get out of him of I take him home. He is toed out a little in one front, she said it was because he went a little longer than usual without a trim and I have corrected had a pigeon toe corrected on a colt with some corrective farrier work so I'm not too worried about that.

    If anyone is still looking at this and wants to take an objective look at him for me, I'd appreciate it! His sire was built like a tank, as was his sire's dam and I definitely liked that!

    I can't give you a real good critique because those pictures are absolutely awful...lol
    He needs to be standing square, head up, legs level to get a good idea of what his conformation is like.
    I'm pro-gelding, but I guess it depends on what your goals/wants are. I didn't get anything out of him that stood out as stallion quality. Definitely looks like he'd a hardy gelding for ya!
    Definitely would need better photo's, though.

    Lmao I know the pictures are terrible. Being picture taker and colt wrangler wasn't working out in my favor yesterday. Every time I had him remotely square I'd step back and he would either try to follow me or, as you can see, pick at weeds. I'll look at some more horses and look at him again before I can make a decision. It isn't one I take lightly, since one of my herd will have to go to make room for another, there's only so much pasture and I don't want it torn up or patchy. So, that's where I'm at.
