Now that I have a few better photos I'd like to see what everyone thinks of Jasper.
I can tell you he is a bit downhill, does toe in on one leg, and does have what appears to be an old injury, and yes so far he has been sound and I'm not taking it easy on him.
6 years old.
My Roan Valentine Quarter Horse
(In the process of changing his name, color, and transferring him to me with the AQHA so his new registered name should be My Roan Valentine).
He has gone from overly sensitive, overly reactive, spooks over any movement toward him to being my puppy dog in less than a week. So he seems really willing and sweet.
I really like him, and plan to just do whatever on him... As long as he shows interest (and stays sound) I would love to take him to some beginner cow clinics and maybe do some super little local reining things... maybe even just some clinics in that too... I don't really see him being super good at anything to be honest (and we will mostly just train and trail ride) but he is a sweet horse and can really get out of his own way FAST. Plus he is very sensitive for a gelding, which I like. A little goes a LONG way with him and he seems like the type of horse you could get in trouble with if your not careful.
