On a side note...i think he's perlino.

Is he gelded? He's got "stallion jowls"

Hard to say what hed be good at right now. I think he needs TLC, weight and muscle put on.

Good for you for taking him on.

You could always DNA test him for sure. But he's quite "orangey" looking on his legs, mane/tail and some part of his face.

First thing id be doing is bathing him and seeing how much I can make him shine! Lol. I love taking "special" cases on and doing makeovers on them. So much fun...

My first horse was almost the same color as this horse.. mine was a bit whiter (if that is possible) through the body and legs. I really really LIKE these horses.

His feet, as you note, need trimming. I think they are very very upright.. almost clubby looking and I think the feet are why the hind leg looks a bit over angulated through the hock. I would like to see a bit lower placement of his hocks.

He is a bit butt high. He has good bone, a short back and I like his shoulder. Nice angle at the point of shoulder and he is neither steep of shallow in the placement of the scapula. His withers carry nicely into his back.

Now I have spent some time with "white" horses like this one.. and I find them to have a very interesting outlook on training and the business of living. The ones I have been around do not miss a thing.. but they are observant.. not particularly afraid of anything. I think it may be a genetic thing.. linked to their color. These horses stand out and the unobservant ones probably got culled pretty quickly in wild situations. How is this horse's disposition?

Years ago (1971), I rode mine on a 30 mile competitive trail ride. One of the parts of the ride required us to cross a large river. On the day of and the day before the ride it rained.. and rained.. and rained.. The river was high and very muddy.. and there were no other horses and riders when I got there. We had NO idea if the crossing was still good or if the high water had made it deep or unstable.

This horse never refused a water crossing and we got to this river and he seemed to understand the possible peril. He went across but every couple of steps he would put his head down under the water to check the bottom of the river bed to make sure there WAS a bottom.

I have lots of stories about this horse. I hope this one of yours is as good as the one I had. Yours has way better conformation and potential.

Right now he is kinda afraid of somethings because he has trust issues, but we are working on that. He is pretty funny though, I had a saddle pad on his neck and he bent down to graze and it slid right over his head and he just picked up his head like what happened. But be is pretty smart too, he can be afraid of things at first but the second time he is good with it. You can push a saddle off the side of him and he doesn't freak out or anything :)
