Critique 18 yr old APHA gelding please

This is Tobi he's a 18 yr old Paint gelding, yes his feet need to be done, farrier will be out soon. Please let me know what you see in him. He's not really that under himself in the front end could get him to square up right. Thanks

He will go anywhere, through anything, and is very kind and gentle, he's right around 16 hands maybe a hair under. He has a trot that will jar your filling loose though.

Love the older kids, very dependable and sometimes much more tolerant of any rider mistakes.

A woman can NEVER have too many horses.....

His feet are terrible he won't hold shoes for more than 3 weeks, combination of bad horn and deep sand, like I said the farrier will be out soon he's on vacation. I herniated 2 disc's in my back recently so I can't trim him any more because he likes to lean on you when you do his feet, I tried doing it with his feet on the stand and I just couldn't get it right on the inside.

I like him! The only thing that really sticks out to me is that, he appears to have a short neck, but I can't say much about that, my Paint does as well:)

Love his markings though!

Wow! That's awesome, do you have a timeline of photos? I love seeing horses mature as they grow up

I wish I did but with computers crashing I've lost most of my older pictures.
