My newly purchased gelding

He is an ex race horse ...... 6 yrs this yr , about 16.3 to 17 hh and is quiet as a mouse. Tell me your thoughts : Hope this works as I am posting off my phone .

Nice horse. I think the noise you are referring to is typical of a gelding while trotting or cantering. It is due to the the movement and his sheath.

OK, so now that I am actually on the computer - I have been able to post some pics of him rather then sending all of you to photo bucket - your thoughts on how he is put together would be greatly apprieacted.

His neck looks a little too short and his shoulder looks a little straight. BUT, is he really is quiet, THAT is more important, IMO.

He is nice looking but I would be concerned with finding a proper saddle with those withers. They are HIGH

Well I LOVE almost ALL TB's so I'm definitely prejudiced. I think he's nicely put together. There is so many choices in tack now a days you should not have any problem finding the proper gear for him. I especially like the first pic with the beautiful sky. I had 2 TB's for 23 and 19 yrs. They were the most versatile, giving wonderful animals EVER!!.

I ended up purchasing this lovely boy, and he was delivered to me on sunday that just went, he is so sweet ....loves his cuddles and his squishes. I ended up having to get him a 6'9 rug - feels like im trying to make a bed when putting it on him lol. He loves his food that is for sure. I am excited as I have just got a day off and I think I may take him for a little ride around his new home to get him used to everything not just his paddock. My favourite thing about him is his lil star on his head - he just seems toi love being scratched there. :) thank you all for your comments.
