Palomino warmblood critique-possible buy

Hi everyone, my Husband enjoyed all of your input on the Friesian mare he was interested in, and wants me to post this new mare he is in love with. It almosts seems too cheep. We are seeing her Sunday, can you tell me what you think of her, if you have the time.

I have no idea about warmbloods except that they are usually pretty expensive. The price seems fishy to me aswell

Well the price tag would be because she is not actually a warmblood, but a 1/2 Saddlebred 1/2 Percheron that is AWS registered. Considering some of the stuff AWS registers and licenses to breed it's basically a confirmation that the horse has 4 legs and 2 ears... so take the whole "warmblood" bit with a cup of salt.

Moving beyond that, she has a very low back. Notice in the confo shots, all of them have the back highlighted almost white by the light, this is to hide her bad back. It is quite visible in the undersaddle shots though. It depends a lot on the horse if this is going to be an issue or not, just for saddle fitting and weight bearing it may affect her, so ask the vet in the vet check. She is also a bit straight behind...

She looks like she would be a nice low level or pleasure prospect and looks to be obedient and evenly tempered. Depending on what kind of trails your husband wants to do and what the vet check says, I would consider her over the Friesian.
Good luck!

She is Purtty!
Perhaps she is priced to low as she is being sold"as a broodmare" right now.
They might not want to put the money and time in refreshing her again.....

We don't care if she is not a Warmblood- I was quoting the add. My husband wants something tall and sturdy (6'4"). He would like to ride trails with me, and I ride on fast walking Arabs. He might want to ge into endurance (non competitive) after a time.

I have to agree with Anebel...I do not like her back, it would be a concern for me, definitely a vet check and depending on how far you want to take her would determine a purchase.

I am aware of that, you were wondering why the price was low, and her breeding would be the reason, IMO.

Endurance on a Percheron cross with a low back might be a bit challenging. A Standy, TB or taller QH might fit the bill better, but this mare is not as thick in build as her breeding suggests so she may work out, she's worth a look at least.

I was just saying I wouldn't know a Warmblood from a hole in the ground. To me it seems like a tall horse with a couple extra 00$ Thank you for the input!!

Just a note...if you're looking for something that will really walk-out on the trail and keep up with arabs, a Percheron cross (which is what this girl is) may not be a good option. Trust me. I have one, and unless he's excited/nervous (has only happened ONCE) or we're on our way home, he adopts what we call the "draft horse plod" and is sooooooooooooooo slow. He may be an exception, but that's my experience. He can, however, go forever (at least at a walk) and barely break a sweat over hilly, rocky ground.

Oh, I'm also leary of the fact that this was the same horse advertised for 10k last year, and she cannot be ridden where she is at... Liabilities I guess. I am trying to arrange trailer ing her off the property or something... I won't buy her of I can't ride her. I would probably have to defer to a vet about the back... I don't see anything with untrained eye.
