I think as long as you aren't looking for a serious competition horse, he'll do just fine. He might could turn you a little money if you can buy him pretty cheap and put a nice foundation on him. He has some wild color.

Thanks! Do you have any ideas of what I could do with my boy? He turns a year in April and we need something to work on. He picks up feet perfect, ties good, leads good, will move his hind and shoulders with a light push, lead across water I can throw blankets all over him, he bathes and I can use the clippers on him lol. What else can I work on at this age?

I would work on in hand obstacles. Drive him over tarps, ditches, logs, etc. it can be a bit boring waiting for them to get old enough to ride and do more things with.

Oh yeah it is lol. But he's my baby and I think he's going to make me a great gelding! Would you think its too early to get him used to a bit if I can find one the right size? Lol

I second the ground driving. Its a great foundation for young horses, and if you have a small enough bridle, you could even mouth him as early as a year old. Just make sure to make it FUN for him so that he doesn't go sour! :P

I would start doing some training in the round can teach a lot of things in there.....teach them walk, trot canter and halt from can teach them to ground drive so they know how to steer when you get in the can also teach leg aids from the ground.......our last youngster knew how to do everything from the ground including how to leg yield her hind quarters over and how to mover her front end side ways.

You can also teach them to turn and face you which is helpful when you have a horse out in a pasture that does not want to be caught.

I teach my guys to lead by their feet by using a lariat or lead rope

You can teach a horse to bow for fun.

BUT you must know what you are doing before attempting any of these things so if you don't know how and have never done anything like this you should get a trainer to teach you and your horse.

IMO its not a good idea to do round pen work with a foal. Especially not one under a year old.
