    I second what Elana said. He has a very nice eye on him, looks accepting. 'I'd certainly take a look at him.

    I don't see anything particularly glaring or spectacular. I think he could definitely use a bit of bulking up. How old is he? How much are they asking for him? I think, as a trail horse, he should be fine...

    EDIT-Ooops, I just reread the thread name xD Duh, he's two... Herpderp

    With more food and conditioning, I think that he will grow into a heck of a horse. Not outstanding, but an average, nice looking boy.

    I have seen horses similar in build as a yearling/2 year old, And they turned out to be outstanding horses.

    Overall, I like him, and if the price was right, I'd add him to my herd.

    He looks like a late bloomer and may need 3-4 more years to really achieve maturity. Gelding him is a must as you have already said; as a 2 year old he doesn't have a "studly" look to him at all (hence my comment about being a late bloomer).

    Thanks for the critiques. I still really like him, hubby is not too thrilled with him. He's just worried my mare isn't going to stay sound enough to use until this guy is ready to really ride. He's really not mature enough to be doing any steady riding. We will be moving (I hope!) and won't have room to keep more than 3, and already have plans to sell the mule to replace her with one horse.

    Y'know, the more I look at him, the more I like him. I'm trying to look at him as I imagine he will look after growing out with good feed and steady work. Aside from looking a bit more fine boned than I would like, I really think he has some potential. And he seems to have a kind face, treated right I imagine he'll treat you well too.

    Funny how this horse makes you come back and look more. I think he is a good 'un. Sometimes you really don't want to pass one up. Like this horse.

    He's a nice looking fella!

    Do you know what his bloodlines are?

    To me he looks like he will make a nice prospect. His legs look good and straight, nice short cannon bones with longer lines above the knee (can't think of what its actually called!!! Lol), he has a nice big sloping hip considering he needs groceries, nice short back with a good sized withers and decent heart girth, and I LOVE his nice quite expression in all the pics. I think he is just a slow grower and needs better nutrition to help him bloom. The only thing I don't like is the lack of bone mass in his legs but he is still a baby! Most of my little cow horses grow up in size until about 3-4 yrs of age and then grow out and thicken up until about 6-7. For the right price I would scoop him up in a second. I see a lot of potential but that's just my opinion.
