    Long back, stubby neck, long cannons, goose rumped, upright pasterns and a steep shoulder?? There's lots of things that pretty color just plain and simply won't cover up.
    This horse's conformation is textbook "what not to buy". I would personally pass.

    I've seen a lot of Friesian crosses go terribly wrong, this one isn't bad! I, personally, do see the Friesian in him. It might be worth finding out what type of Friesian the parent was. There's a cart type and a dressage/riding type. The cart types have rough, choppy gaits while the dressage types are smoother.

    Hmm, I'm not seeing a steep shoulder, and he is still growing like a weed, so I'm sure he will grow into his long cannons. For the work I'm looking to do, I don't think he's that bad. Thanks though!

    Thanks! I didn't know if they are a good breed or not for ranch work. Although they do look like it. Just getting the pictures in now. He's a lot wider than he looks in these pictures. With how big boned he is, and with a nice set of withers, I don't see why he wouldnt make a very nice ranch horse, he's priced fair for friesians in my area. Would you pay $1000 for him?

    Im not sure what horse prices are like there compared to here in Alberta, but Id say its a fair asking price. Can always offer lower

    Just spoke with the owner again. He is sired by a cart-type stud. So he will probably have a rougher gait. But that's fine, I'm used to riding short-strided rough Hancock QHs.

    I can't blame you for wanting this handsome boy... wow, his coloring is spectacular. However I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of him squared-up. I can see what anabel is seeing, but it's hard to be sure without a picture of him standing square.
