    Coyote Grade 13 year old gelding

    I am wondering what you can tell me about my horse's conformation, and what you think he would excel at most (other than trail riding). He is around 15 hands. I have no idea what breed, but am assuming QH or QH cross.

    When I first got him

    Riding a couple of years ago.

    Sorry it's far away...

    Forgive the big belly. We have since dewormed him.

    And just for the fun of it.....

    No I can't swim, the dugout is over 16 feet deep, yes I am stupid.

    Thank you in advance.
    He has virtually no training (neither do I) other than to not buck, and I am working on the softening, yeilding, and general good behavior.

    He is not a bad looking little horse. Maybe some cow work .

    He is a bit straight through the hock and he has a hay belly (can you trot him up hills in a two point and a loose rein?). More of this work would improve his muscling. He has good bone but may be a bit back at the knee. His shoulder is a bit steep and his point of shoulder is a bit low.

    He is a pretty good horse.

    Rant (for your safety)
    You need to learn how to swim before ever going in any water over your head (its a good skill to have anyway)! I have seen too many drownings.. and the people were just out "having fun." Ruins everyone's day.. very sad.

    Thank you for the comments on Coyote's build. I'll have to remember to do trotting up hills and work on muscle building.

    As for the rant about my safety. Thank you for your concern. As a general rule I stay AWAY from water that is deeper than waist deep. I did this once with Coyote, and then decided to not anymore. I am pretty well terrified of water deep enough to cover my face. If I'm in a pool I can't go in the deep end. Maybe someday I will get brave enough to learn to swim, until then I will stay out of the deep water.
