    New one for consideration

    I am thinking of trading my guy for this 12 YO QH gelding. I will try and get more pics later, but here is what I have so far.

    His name is Zips Impressive Boy, and I am told he is HYPP N/N. Headed out to see him now, but in the meantime, let me know what you all think. Thanks!

    The build looks nice until you take a ruler to the photo and you'll see that he's built downhill. I had a QH, from racing blood ALSO built downhill. His front legs suffered in his later years and I didn't stress them by showing Reining, or other front leg stress activities.

    That pic is at kind of a wonky angle, but I agree, he's a touch downhill. His shoulder might be a touch upright or it might just be the picture.

    I really like his legs though. Good angles and straight. Good bone and big feet for an Impressive bred horse. He looks like he might be a bit of a workout to ride at a trot but other than that, he looks really nice. His stops and turns could use a bit of refinement, but you can do that yourself. He's got nice cadence and cruise control.

    My biggest looked like he got a bit gimpy on his right front toward the end of the video.

    ETA: looking closer at the picture, it appears that the right front that he was gimpy on might be a little bit clubby.

    Thanks smrobs-he is actually off on the left. I LOVED his personality, but, he was really uncomfortable, even without being "off" on the left front. THe agent selling him is a friend, totally honest with me....I also know the owner. He is questionably clubbed (slightly) on the left front. Farrier has been AWFUL under the owner-who is one with more $$ than sense. They are trying to turn him around and get his feet right. I agree he is downhill, and nowhere near as broke as mine, even tho mine is in "make me do it" mode lately and I am "over it". Lol. Mine has never taken a lame step....**knock wood**.
    I am starting to look at alternatives-even tho my grandson is still little.....and uses the horn to go "beep beep" I am beginning to think mine may work........looked good next to this one.
    Agan-thanks all!
    smrobs and Starlite like this.

    Corporal-my concern is that he is actually halter bred....but his feet are bigger than most of those. He is off a ranch in Vermont, who typically get their horses off ranches in the midwest and lease them to camps. He has been a camp horse and would not do something they do with pulling a person on skis.....not something I would do for sure. Like I said-great personality, but I prefer a horse with 4 good feet and legs......

    I see him a little lame on his right front in the video (trotting after cantering both ways). Start watching him trot at 2:12.

    Pretty horse. Man is he heavy on his forehand. He even stumbles at one point going clockwise.

    Yeah-he has really only had trail riding......too bad. Like I said-his demeanor was lovely.
