7 yr old Gypsy Vanner Gelding

Would like some critique on this 7 year old gypsy vanner gelding. He is of good bloodlines and is 14.2 hh. These are the best pictures I have at the moment. Thanks!

What are his bloodlines?

I see a nice shoulder, long back, his hind legs kind of look straight from the side view , but it may be the angle from which the photo was taken. Can you take more pics of his legs?


What are your plans for him?

Certainly appears to be a handsome boy. What are your plans for him? Why didn't you purchase the other Gypsy you asked about a while back?

I,d have thought he had a short back,which is what you want in a gypsy cob,he, has a neat little head and small joints,all good points,good do with a bit more feather,but all round a nice cob

In some pics he does have more feather than in others. Could be, like some Gypsies, he sheds a bit of feather during certain times of the year.

Gorgeous horse.

Conformation wise: he looks pretty post-legged in the back and appears to have a capped hock. He also has a very long back. Other than that, he looks good: nice sloping shoulder and good neck and front legs.

Thanks! Such good comments...and appreciated.

It looks like I am going to go ahead and get this guy...I feel like he is a good fit for me and his vet check went well.

The previous Gypsy I was looking into buying was sold before I made up my mind about him...I was away on vacation that week...so I guess it was meant to be. That being said he was sold to someone who really wanted to buy him a while back and had to save up the money so I am sure he will be well loved.
