Foal Critique

I am waiting on current photos of this colt but for now this is what I have to work with. I know they aren't great confo pics. He is full blooded Arabian and will eventually be used for trail, pleasure, & h/j. I will also post photos of sire/dam.

1. Do you see anything glaringly wrong with him?
2. Opinion on bloodlines?
3. What do you feel would be a reasonable offer for him? He does have 2 scars on his legs due to being stepped on by his dam at birth.

Colt:
Pedigree: Raiderr Pj Arabian










Dam: seni

Sire: Prowlerr

Hard to judge babies,but he sure is cute! Dd he get X-rays done on the leg that was stepped on to check for permanent damage and possible future lameness?

Are these photos from a public "for sale" posting? I mean, do you have permission to post him for a critique?

Photos are from a public sales ad. I am asking for a critique purely from a purchasing standpoint.

It's hard to critique babies... He may be a little over at the knees, but that could change, since he's so young.... He looks like he's going to be a stunner. That's all I can say, lol.

Thank you! I know other goals I've looked at have instantly been spotted by other ppl as having long/short/weak/etc pasterns or other issues. So any input is great!

It's so hard to judge foals and I know absolutely nothing about arab breed standards, so no critique from me. I just had to say he is stinkin' cute! I love that little bit of white over his eye and his high whites.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

He is definitely cute. I as well, could be concerned that he could have some type of damage from momma stepping on him. Could be why he's priced at $800 because they are unsure of how that will affect him as an adult?

If he was sound, I'd say he's worth the $800 but they might be willing to go down on price. If I was a serious buyer, I'd start at $500 and see what happens.......After he had a PPE.
