I like him-hooves are quite long, check for club, but at his age a lot can be done. He looks nice & is not starving-which is good.

Well, hubby is recanting his "ok" with a second horse, as hay prices are so high that my boarding manager told me she can't give me a discounted rate until March, when the pasture horses will start needing way less hay. I'm trying to convince him to just let me go out and look at him... (secretly hoping hubby will fall for him in the process, as this would eventually become his riding horse). I've also found a way to drive him up to me for just the cost of gas. *SIGH!* Why does my pony lifestyle have to be so costly... :( Will update if/when I go see him.

His low price may be due to the high price of hay.

This is not a good winter for horses... and have is a rare commodity in some places.

Yay! We're going to go look at him. Boarding manager is excited about the idea of another baby (she breeds Arabs and has a 5-month old colt herself) and said she'd help me out as much as she can since this would be my first youngster. If I like his looks/personality in person, I'll call the vet out and see what he thinks of him. If that all checks out, he'll be coming home within 2 weeks. I'm only a leeeetle bit excited...

Ok, we're set for 11:30 tomorrow and here are his bloodlines:
I don't know much about most of the horses on his sire's side; anyone heard of the more modern ones?

Dam
Salute B Girl (Can't find her on allbreed... But I know she's registered through AQHA)

I know this is a terrible confo shot as he is standing on an incline, but can you tell anything at all about his build from this shot? I know he will be growing into himself considerably as he is only about 7 months old, but I could use any opinions or critique. Thank you!

Hey! I have been eying him too! My main problem is finding a place to board.

for $100.00 bucks he looks a like a deal. i would not worry about a scrape, a gash, or deep cut i would be concerned about. and at that price I would not even vet check, if he appears sick then i would , and make him back up to see how he reacts to his hind end. I did not see impressive lineage nor poco bueno so i would not worry about the genetic diseeases.

Squigley, he's an American Quarter Horse. Just looked up the exchange rate and he's about 78.5 euros. I'm glad that he's ranch bred... He'd mostly be a trail horse but hubby wants a versatile horse that he could do a lot with. I think I'd be able to do most of this baby's beginning desensitizing, handling and maybe basic lunging, but I'd probably find a trainer to put at least 30 days training on him after he grows up and fills out. I'm not experienced with actual training and hubby loves horses and riding, but isn't what I'd call an advanced rider. A horsey friend of mine just said she thought he might be a little "in at the knees" on the front legs. Does anyone else see this? I will see if the owner will let me take better confo shots when I'm out there.
