Wow, I've never seen such a hideous animal! I'll tell you what, I'll take that awful horse off your hands and hide him forever from the sight of the public.
I'm totally joking :) he's gorgeous! I can't tell much about his confirmation from these action shots, but I like him overall. Good depth in his heart-girth, his neck ties in nicely, good looking booty! And color to boot. What are your plans for this stunning boy? Posted via Mobile Device
Well, since he's such an embarrassment, perhaps I should hide him behind my barn for you.
Handsome boy but can't really comment because the pics aren't great for what you're asking and he's looking kind of gawky, 2 year old, growing-ish. He reminds me of my boy when I first got him. Now at 3 my guy is still growing but what a world of difference!
In fairness to your boy, I wouldn't ask any more about him for another year, then see how he's matured and then put up a couple of good conformation pics.
There's an old breeder's adage that goes something like this: Look at them at 3 days, 3 weeks, 3 months and then don't look again until they are 3 years.
Here they are. Plans are to show him in reining (What he is bred for) but we will also be used for hunting/camping/trail riding, some small rodeo's and some ranch work, and eventually sire some fantastic reining foals for me.
I've always been interested in reining, I love watching it.
His topline is good, I like his hind end, I'd like to see him with more substantial bone but that's just me. His pasterns look to be a little short and upright too. But I like him, and at 2 years old he has a lot of room to improve.
I'm sure more knowledgeable members will chime in, as I'm not too experienced yet with leg angles. Posted via Mobile Device
His sire is Jumping Jack Whiz (Son of Topsail Whiz and earner of $55K) and his dam is a daughter of Dunit's Lucky Charm.
I have been watching Jumping Jack Whiz for a long time and I am really liking what his get are getting done. I have wanted a son of his for a few years and this is the one I just had to have. I wanted something a bit taller (He is already 14 3hh so I expect at least 15 1hh) with lots of bone (He actually is much more solid then he appears) and with better stifles then I regularily see in the whiz horses. Palomino is my least favorite color, but...
