My mom named him Mellow Yellow, but I've been calling him Mellow. Not sure if it accurately describes his temperament, but I like it. If I do get him, though, I'll need to come up with a "show name" for him, since all my critters have barn names and show names.

Thanks! I've only ridden English once or twice in my whole life, and both times were mini lessons with a trainer friend of mine. Unfortunately she moved across the country and I haven't been able to find someone else to teach me since.. at least not for free!

If you guys see this, what color would you say he is? He's got a white blaze that you can barely see, and some white patches like a paint on his body, too. I wanted to say a cremello paint, but I don't know what the qualifications are for that.

One thing... why do people always associate posting solely with English riding? I ride western and post at the trot... everyone I know does too... it's just a lingering question in my mind...

I guess I do because I was never taught to post in Western-- I was always taught to sit relaxed in the saddle when I showed. Of course, once I stopped showing I'd stand in the saddle for a trot because it hurt like heck sometimes :P

Lots to like about this little guy. I really like his hock set and legs look clean. A little narrow through chest for my liking but he is a small horse/large pony and underweight and young so that might change. I really like his movement. He has a huge beautiful walk, very important and underlooked gait. He tracks up and really gets under himself. His trot is the same, in the video he is only able to take a few steps and I imagine if you give him a nice straight away, he will have a beautiful reaching trot with some natural extension. I'd say dressage might be in the cards for this one!

He has amber eyes and pinkish skin. I'm not feeling cremello here. Perlino maybe, or else champagne+cream.

Conformationally he isn't too bad. A couple of faults but nothing huge, perhaps a wee bit long in the back and that shoulder is a tad upright but not horrible. He's a bit undermuscled on his neck at the moment, I would be very interested to see how he looks with muscling and groceries as that may correct into a very nice neck. Yes, very thin, but I really like his walk and his trot. I'd love to see him in good body condition, at canter, because if he has a good canter he may even make a jumper or eventer. There is definitely, at this stage, some potential there for dressage.

I kind of want him... his eyes are such a cool colour, and he's such a cool dude. For a large pony, he is really nice (for the record, I absolutely LOVE ponies, I just haven't seen many nice ones around the 14hh mark)

I'm glad you guys like him so much!! I can't wait to get some meat on his bones and start training him (and me)... not bad for only $200!

He's so cute!!! :) Cream genes get me all the time... LOL. Congrats on your adorable boy! (And for show names... I saw a video on YouTube once with a stallion called "Mr. Stud Muffin"...)
