I would like to breed this guy if he proves to be worth it when he's older. He needs to be trained and the like, but I think with his personality, and being as gentle as he is, that he'll be worth it... But I want to make sure his confirmation is ok to pass on to a foal?
I should have better pictures soon, but I wanted to get a general idea?
More pictures, without the winter fuzzies, would really help. Horses never stand square when they are eating, so photos like that are not much good, but from what I can see, he doesnt seem to be terribly conformed.
Very thick boned, naturally
Can't really add much more
Nice "little" fellow
Aside from the Barbed wire fencing (yeah.. I know.. it is there and it is cheap) I will weight in that this horse appears very very straight through the hocks, long through the coupling and weak in the hind quarters. He stands close behind as well.
Not a stallion prospect that I can see. Very cute gelding tho!!
Featheredfeet is right that fence definetly needs to be tightened. We do not cap our tpost and have miles of barbed wire but our pastures are over 10 -250 acres and not crowded. Never have had any issue with the fencing here.
I have noticed that drafts are hard on fencing almost like cattle. That is why it is necessary to keep good fences. Less problems.
He appears to be a nice horse yet that long hair hides his conformation. Shalom
As dbarabians said, drafts are extremely hard on fencing. Most seem to love to rub their bottoms on anything handy. Gypsies are known to be jumpers, as many have discovered. Did you purchase this boy as possible stallion quality?
