2011 APHA Bay Tobiano Weanling Colt**Price Reduced! for sale in Juneau, Wisconsin :: HorseClicks

I seem to be the only one to like this colt. (gelded)

Just look at that hip and how low it ties into his gaskin.

I like the appy and the palomino (or what ever color she is, lol) best.

Ehhh none of them seem like they will be solid enough for cow work. The most promising one is the last one you posted. But really I don't like any of them. If you want to do cow work your really going to need something well balanced with a good hind end to get under itself and solid legs. You might have to up your budget if you want something that's going to perform well.

#1, bay tobiano colt: Run the other way. While the rest of him isn't really terrible, his front legs make me want to scream. Very long pasterns with a big angle to them. Far too much risk there of a bowed tendon, especially doing high-torque events like penning/sorting.

#2, bay overo colt: Back end is nice, front end...not so much. Upright pasterns, upright shoulder, really short and skinny neck.

#3, bay tobiano filly: No good pictures to judge by, but I don't see anything that stands out as bad.

#4, fewspot appy filly: Very unfortunate looking creature. Fine boned, steep shoulder and croup, high tail set, ewe neck, also looks like she may be calf-kneed on the right front.

#5, palomino (champagne) filly: I like her the very best. Her head is a bit coarse, but that is the only thing I can really pick at with her. Her body is very well balanced for a yearling and her angles are good.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Nice hip is NOT going to offset his incredibly long and poorly-angled pasterns, and sickle hocks, unfortunately. He also has a rather upright shoulder.
smrobs and Tryst like this.

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.
