    Sorry if I missed it, but what do you want? So far I've got you don't want a draft or pony. You are keeping it for a few years, and maybe showing in something, and you don't like bays.

    you want an average sized, well built, untrained horse? You have babies -8 year olds on this thread.

    Yes you are correct, I don't want a draft or a pony, I would like a horse around 15-15.3hh, or a yearling. I will keep it for at least a few years, I think I will show it in the local shows, take it on trails and just have fun with it, and I don't want a bay (they are way to popular in my area, and I like the 'colourful' horses, chestnuts and browns)

    This palomino mare, that I posted a picture of, is said to be a barrel horse, so I might try that with her, if I buy her.

    Turns out the palomino is out of the question, as she is WAY to far away for me to travel... she is in Ontario, and I am in Saskatchewan.

    I got more pictures of the cremello, recent ones from today. I don't know why, but I keep going back to her. She is also, almost the size of a 3 year old, and I really like her.

    How does she look now?





    And I also came across this one, a 4 year old Grulla mare, how does she look, based on these photo's, I am going to ask for conformational ones next time I email about her.

    The grulla Looks possibly promising. The cremello filly pics don't work but there is not amount of growth that will fix what's wrong with her conformation.

    Even in the young horses you can tell pretty quickly if they are going to grow and well balanced build. You got to look at the angle of the shoulder and the croup. The length of the croup the legs, the thickness of bone. The length of the back. Gotta look for some symmetry in the angles you don't want a jerky uncomfortable ride. I'm sure someone could explain this better than me I'm not a Conformation expert I just know what I like balance, good bone, substance, good mind, and heart.
    Here's some some conformational shots of jet as he's a fairly well balanced horse and see that that doesn't change too much from now to him at 2. Not saying he's perfect or anything I also think you should go back and look at pics of breeze as she has grown. Give you an idea of what changes and what doesn't as you look for a younger horse prospect.

    Why thank you for the compliment Elana. He is my pride and joy I love him to pieces . Turning 3 next year I'm excited to start riding. He's doing great with the ground work basics.

    Breezy good luck with your horse search basically what I was trying to say in my horsey example is growth in young horses changes some things. And with time and age a horse can even out certain things but doesn't fix everything. Like Jets point of the hip always has been a little higher than his withers it's probably going to stay that way his sire was like that.
