He's a nine year old palamino/dunalino gelding. Quarter horse, ex roper. He was advertised for $500 but she took it down to $400 so I can get his coggins and a hoof trim. He seems like a good boy, but would do much better under a better rider. The kid riding him now needs more of a "point and kick" automatic type of horse. He needs to actually be ridden if that makes sense. I'm suppose to pick him up Sunday!
this is the best picture she could get as far as confo pictures. From what I can see, he's got some pretty high withers for a quarter horse.. And he has an awfully steep croup. How will the steep croup effect him as a barrel horse? I'm not looking to do anything big, but local playdays and jackpots. His legs look alright, hard to tell. Maybe steepish pasterns? I like how big he is up front, in a picture from the front he's pretty wide. What do you guys with experienced eyes see? How will his faults effect him? And what strong points does he have?
Thanks everyone! I'll probably take more pictures when I get him and post better ones here. Posted via Mobile Device
