I'm looking for a colt to train, want something quiet and well built, and able to possibly do a variety of disciplines decently well. ( no huge showing events coming up in my future, but I want a decently athletic animal.)
He is turning 2 this spring, and is a registered AQHA appendix. He is 15.2 and is string tested to 16-16.1 His dam is an OTTB, and his sire is Only Krymsun, by One Hot Krymsun.
His owner thinks he could be built well enough to do well in halter, and possibly hunter/jumper. I would mostly be riding western tho.
I like him, and think he looks pretty good. Anyone see any glaring faults that I should be aware of? Again, he doesn't have to win world championships. I just want a good, sturdy, well built horse that will give me a good ride, and hold up well with lots of riding.
Thanks for your input!
Overall I like him quite a lot - nice shoulder, short back, good bone, overall quite balanced for his age. Youngsters can go through a lot of funny growth... Right now his neck looks a tiny bit short, and he has a bit of hay/wormy looking belly, but really overall a promising looking colt with a built that could lend him to go a variety of directions.
Holy Short Back! While I like a shorter backed horse, I think this guy is a little too short. Saddle fit is going to be a problem.
This, I keep looking at his back and where I would seat the saddle, then looking down at where that would put the cinch, *shakes head* he just looks like his withers extend too far back looks again *scratches head*
I like himwhile first pic he looks way short backed , the pic beside it not so much. He has good bone,decent legs,nice slope to shoulder like head & neck & ties in nicely. Pics are really deceiving sometimes best to see horse in person. I have pics of my filly at that age ,when I saw them thought OMG she looks long but know she isn't. I have others of her & she looks very short coupled,never think same horse.Agree that horse is bit potty looking in belly & also don't believe horse is as tall as they say
His back and withers worry me. Like mentioned above, where they are lined where the cinch is worries me. I like his body other than that, but me personally, wouldn't buy. Short backs are nice but maybe I'm being strange looking at where the saddle would rest. Maybe I'm being odd. He's cute Posted via Mobile Device
