Potential new horse - i'd love to get any thoughts you may have on his confo.









Unfortunately I don't have any front/back shots at this time.

I really like him! How tall is he? Very substantial, nice sloped shoulder, wither high but to be expected, nice bone, pretty head in #2, maybe a bit toed out or camped out in the hind? Have you ridden him? He's lovely!
Something about his back gives pause, maybe just the high withers... IDK?

Are you sure this is an Arab? Looks like there's some QH in him--heavier forarms and hindquarters, and no refined head. ?
Anyway, I see he's a little camped out behind. The ride will be choppier bc he won't be able to collect. Arabs that can collect already have choppy trots. That's what I see.
Here's a picture of my Arab, "Corporal" (1982-2009, RIP), at 25yo

For reference to the profile.

Corporal, he could be purebred, although his head definitely isn't typey.

I'd like to see a profile picture of him in a brightly lit space though, since I can't really see anything in those darker interior shots.

As far as the heavier bones and body structure go, that could be his breeding. If he's Crabbet or Al Marah breeding, he'll be more true to the original Arab type than the wispy, ethereal ones you see nowadays.

What's his pedigree, Crimson?

This is the only other picture I have of him currently - it was taken when the current owner went to look at him so he's standing in the rain in a thunderstorm. Hahaha

I'm not sure of his pedigree. The name I was given I can't seem to find anything on... Jabbetawin (perhaps the spelling is wrong?)



Sorry - forgot to add he's ~14.3hh and 950lbs.

I really like him! Did you get to ride him yet? Comformationally, I think he looks pretty good!

I think that last picture does him no favors, its skewed and makes his legs look tiny compared to his body. Hopefully. Are you going out to see him? How is his disposition, training, that would make up for any of his minor (checked out) "faults".

I like that he is an arab with an actual butt. I'm no good with conformation but I don't like arabs with those tiny, bony butts. I don't like that last picture at all, he looks almost like he's trying to hunch to keep warm and it makes him look funky.
