I am very new to the forum, and I have been trying to help a family friend sell her Paso Fino gelding for quite a while. The owner doesn't know a lot about Paso Finos, she has been learning what people have told her over the last seven or eight years she has owned him. Now her daughter that had gotten her to buy the gelding in the first place (worked at the horse rescue they bought him from) is now married, has little kids of her own, and moved out of state.
I know that the owner knows NOTHING at all about conformation of any breed of horse. Mine knowledge of basic conformation is pretty much limited to arabs and quarter horses.
I am really hoping that I can get some helpful critique here on her gelding's conformation.
He was born April 1998, and is a purebred registered Paso Fino. I am not sure exactly when the pictures were taken, but I would guess that they were from the summer of 2010.
His back just seems odd to me, but as I have said, I know so little about the Paso Fino breed. That may be how their back should look, but then again...
But, oh how I do wish I would be given better pictures than these when I am trying to help someone sell a horse (writing up the ad after I pull out all the details about the horse I can from their owner). I guess that is what happens when I don't do it myself, not that I get a sinlge penny for doing it though... LOL!
If you can let me know of any major conformational faults or something that is wrong for his build as a Paso Fino, please let me know
