perlino stud....what do you see

Hi, came across this stud, and noticed some things........badly angled and underslung feet, over or tied in at the knees,toes out in the front, though it could be the bad farrier work......long in the back......anyone else see these things? He seems camped under in the first pic but not the others. Please understand, NOT thinking about breeding this boy, maybe purchase as a gelding, if he is a good boy, just wanted some opinions.......

He's a decent looking boy, but DEFINITELY needs someone to buy him and snip him! He looks like a good work horse, he'd make a fantastic gelding!

He's terribly sickle hocked. :\ He also stands over at the knee. His neck is short and coarse, and his throttle is sloppy.

I agree... he doesn't need to be a stallion.

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

I think he would improve drastically with a PROPER trim. His feet and angles are absolutely god awful. Looks like someone who doesn't have a clue what they're doing has been trimming him.

Came across this guy on Craigslist, you must be in AZ. I also wondered if he was really stallion material, as so few seem to be.

Perhaps throatlatch??? I just googled and see that throttle is listed under the "also sometimes referred to" terms

If he were a sorrel he'd already be a gelding. He'd make a nice little gelding as long as the sun doesn't bother his eyes. I would bet that his feet have rarely if ever been trimmed.
themacpack and DraftyAiresMum like this.
