He is a typical foundation looking bred QH. Short coupled,bull doggy build.Shorter thick neck,nice bone,correct legs. Depending on what your mare,is like & what you are hoping to do with foal, He may be suitable.

Fist pictures doesn't look like the same horse-or it is an old picture maybe? That horse looks incredibly downhill(perhaps young?). Rest look just as painted said. WHether or not that fits with what you want and compliments your mare-who knows.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

He's got really nice legs and feet, I love his hip, but there is something wonky with his back that's bugging me. He seems to have a rather prominent dip in there. Not like a sway, but like he's very dowhill, very short backed, with bigger withers all rolled into one.

Do you know, do they have any trouble with saddle fitting on him?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

The first picture in my opinion doesn't give him any justice. I really like the second one better

I'll try to find a better picture, I don't think they have problems with saddle fit. He's mostly reining bred. I've always liked the foundation type horses. He's also only 14.2 hh so he's quite short lol.
