    Quarter Horse

    I'm continuing a slow search for a horse, and came across this ad. I think the horse looks decent enough, although seller seems to be going for an air of mystery... Do you guys think she's worth looking into?
    Sorry there aren't confo pics in the ad:

    That horse is underweight and something is up with that back. All the input I have!

    I would pass. Very wonky confo and she doesn't look especially healthy. No mention of her level of training either....

    This horse appears to be cow hocked. That is the most I can speculate from those particular photographs.

    Depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a fun trail riding horse or local level horse and If she's as quiet as the ad says, I'd look. Especially if you can come up with a good trade.

    Put some groceries in her and she's cute...

    This is why I come to you guys for input, thanks for the honest comments.
    I am worried about her weight though...i'm assuming the last 2 pictures are the more recent ones...

    Underweight, conformation.. hard to say not good enough pics. Her back looks a bit swayed?
    Or hollowed, could be from the lack of food. If she is gentle, she is worth a look, if you like her, then make a lowball offer. He does not want the horse. Get a bill of sale, with his name, address and phone.
    Horse may be older than he stated, unless she has papers, look at her teeth .

    It's not the weight that would bother me if I was looking to buy. Her confo is just downright bad. Super long, weak back that has the start of a sway, one of the most downhill adult horses I've ever seen, very weak hind end, pretty severely cow hocked, very upright shoulder.

    If you were able to get her fit enough to ride and found a saddle to fit her, I imagine that riding her would feel about like riding a jackhammer that was bouncing down a steep hill.

    She looks like a sweetie, but not something that I'd look at for more than a pasture pet.
