    I'm no expert but he looks a nice horse. Lovely pasterns and as everyone else has said, a beautiful shoulder. Some muscling needed and perhaps a little extra grocery-shopping for a short time, but I certainly wouldn't kick him out of the barn... Plus he has a lovely face!

    I see you're in Arizona. I assume your Equine market is a lot like ours here in California. While I love his build and his expression, if you should ever want to sell him you may have a trouble fetching good money for him. He's downright Typey and has no chrome. Hopefully he jumps well, and jumps bravely. If he does, then you've got yourself a Diamond in the rough, for sure.
    I personally, love his look!

    Ho hum, my dear, but I believe that you may be a bit biased with that statement. Frankly, I wouldn't want to sell him to anyone who didn't want to buy him because he didn't have "chrome" – not exactly a relevant factor! ;)

    Just put a lot of good dressage, and later jumping work on him, and you have yourself a shining (not to mention valuable!) star! Work closely with a trainer to bring him along, and I am certain he can get you there! He's got excellent conformation, especially for an OTTB. Don't know the way he thinks or the way he moves, but judging purely off of these views of conformation and expression, I think you just may have yourself a gold nugget!

    And also, if you ever need to rehome him... gimme a call!! ;D

    I hope to see more of this gorgeous boy. A big THUMBS UP!

    I actually know a lot of people who are very much into chrome-less horses. I honestly like solid horses just as much as odd-ball markings.

    Nope. Not bias at all. Actually I am simply speaking from my own experience in the equine market. My warmblood was imported from the Czech Republic, jumped the meter forties, and was quite a lovely horse... however when I had people out to look at him, the very first thing they say is "he's lovely, but no chrome."

    Thank you to everyone who commented. I'm glad to see some positive comments! I took one look at him and said I'd take him..all from the gut. Not the best way to make a financial decision I know!!

    Since I've had him, he has picked up on things pretty quickly. He now rides off the seat and leg (most of the time) and we are only doing walk and trot. I can already see the tiniest hint of muscle development! He has gotten very nervous a few times and when that happens, he doesn't listen well... Hopefully that will improve with training and exposure. There are a few times I've had to put on my big-girl pants and suck up my own fears....Here's hoping I will continue to do so.

    Yep, the market in AZ stinks too for sure. I totally agree that he's not super flashy upon first glance, but he just DOES it for me! Not a spot of white anywhere on him. Hopefully I won't have to sell him and we can event and trail ride off into the sunset...plain brunettes the both of us!

    Although I can understand where the lack of chrome comment is coming from, you have to take into account the fact that (I believe?) the OP is an eventer. Eventers are nonplussed with regards to colour and will rely entirely on athletic ability, training, boldness, brain, and soundness. Couldn't care less if the horse is 'pretty' or considered 'flashy'. There's your market, irrespective of location.

    Besides, all horses look 'flashy' when they're eating up a cross country course, socks and facial markings make very little difference.

    Heck yes they do! Chrome and flash gets covered up pretty quickly with mud, dirt and sweat
