Oh yeah, I didn't really even notice the reining thing. I would love a horse like that as just a riding horse, maybe pkay around with roping at paydays.

I saw him as well. Any time I see reining, I get excited to see what it is. I kind of expected a horse that was trained to rein, but then maybe had an injury, keeping him from being ridden. I did not expect someone to just throw some words out there to get some attention. He is very mediocre (sp). I wouldn't let him touch a mare, much less a good one. I would also pass because he has been a stallion so long. He is not worth 2500 anyways, imho, unless he can really ride around.

i don't see anything wrong with this horses confo and not sure why the negative reviews, except for a stud needs a performance record and good bloodlines. if this was a gelding you would be getting fabulous critiques. and 14 is not necessarily too late to geld. i love his front legs, great bone. neck is gorgeous, great throatlatch, short compact back, maybe a touch straight in the hock. go look at him. i'm sure he's not stallion quality because he wouldn't be selling for $2500, but as a gelding for what you want, worth a look in my book.

Thank you, I loved his neck and back! I was really going to work hard to get a job and get him... But just yesterday a situation came up. My grandpa passed away... Leaving my mimi alone and she's very upset. I may be moving into town with my,mimi now.

He is well put together, IMO. I do not like his ears though, they are the least attractive part of him, my personal taste. So everything about him, other than his ears, I like ;)

It he truly had talent and was proven, IMO, he would not be $2500.
ITA - if you have a horse that truly deserves the title "reining stud" - you would also have some great details about his reining career to include in the advertisement
He's not a bad horse, but I would be leery of just about ever selling point/statement the seller made because they are already using what I find to be questionable advertisement tactics.

Exactly. And, if the ad is questionable...what else is. Just something to think about.
