I tend to agree with Faceman here. He's one scrawny looking QH! Or maybe I'm just used to the bulldog type QHs we own...hmmm. Either that or he's still a baby and they're lying about his age. He definitely is cute though.

We get a lot of racing bred QHs in AZ because, up until a few years ago, we had quite a bit of QH racing. My dad sold a ranch to a guy who bred and raced QHs locally and nationally.

It's odd, because in the pic with his head up , he does look much more typey for TB, yet in the stall pic, he looks like QH+??? Something else I can't out my finger on...almost like a mustang! Two pics, three different horses! :0)

Perhaps, but the "stall picture" is showing me pasterns and withers that are typey for a TB. Not that it matters, it's just if he has a lot of TB in him he might be better at the finesse disciplines if that is what you have in mind, which I assume as if I remember correctly the ad mentioned something about English...

Quite true, as, yes I do ride English, and would like to eventually get back to jumping, especially on the trail and in the open.

I bought my little guy for $600. He is registered, from great blood lines and he is an amazing horse. I think the seller realized his mistake on the price because he tried to buy him back several times.

It's hard to tell much from those pictures, but if he's sound and gentle, he might be worth $1000. Their farrier appears to be working hard to make him clubby looking on that right front.

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/

Sorry to dredge up such an old posting, but for those who took the time to kindly give me their input, I wanted to provide a brief update....

Unfortunately, he either sold quickly, the owners decided not to sell, or they preferred simply to not contact me for some unknown reason!

Nonetheless, no new info as there was never even a contact, let alone a meeting. I always take things such as this as a message from G-d to look elsewhere; thus, the search continues!

Thanks again, guys!

Thanks for the update, it's always nice to know how a story ends

If you only e-mailed them once and never got a respond then please keep in mind that your e-mail could have gotten caught in a spam filter. If something like that happes to me (if I am VERY interested and do not get a response) I usually send another e-mail with a different subject, it has worked for me in the past.

Wow, good thought, Caljane! I hadn't even considered that...I haven't seen his ad again, though, so he may be gone...

I'll check into it...at the time I initially saw him, and subsequently kept going back and reading his ad again and again, (the miniscule info they posted) I was getting very excited to at the least hear a bit more about him! It's been weeks now, but, definitely worth one more try. Hey, if they DO get back to me this time, I'll really start feeling it's "meant to be"!

Ugh...me and my "signs"...Ha!

Thank you for the input! :0)
