Taking a hard look at this guy - Arab Folk and QH/Paint Folk come hither please!

Okies ... found a little guy I'm going to take a serious look at this weekend. He's a little younger than I wanted, but I do have someone who can break him to saddle and get his basics down. I *could* do it myself, but since I'm 50, I obviously would prefer not to! LOL

Here's his ad with a good bit of photos. Not great confirmation shots but if someone spots something please do speak up.

Super Cute Reg 1/2 Arab/Paint

Here's his pedigree.

Sharp Dress Man Part-bred Arab

Nothing really impressive *coughs* no pun intended. I was able to trace part of his Arab side to some Crabbet and polish lines. A BIG plus for me is he has Fadheilan who is the sire of my all time favorite stud Fadjur. Of course it means virtually zero as he's so far back but it did give me a SQUEEEEEE for a moment ;) I don't intend on stepping foot into a show ring ever again so really pedigree is for my own amusement.

He has not been tested for HYPP which has already been addressed with the seller. I will not purchase a positive horse so that must be done if I decide to go further with this.

Upside - He appears at this point to take on the best of both worlds as far as Arab/QH-Paint cross which I like very much.

Downside - *Could* be HYPP positive which would make this whole post pointless. Younger than I wanted which isn't really a downside just not *ideal*.

He's a good looking young horse. Price is nice. Can't hurt to look, right?

Nice nice nice.....pedigree is nice too....you're lucky you're so far from me....he'd be in my barn by now
I'd have him tested, and a n/h wouldn't concern me too much, it can be managed.....but it needs to be known.

From his Arab side, I'd dare to say he could be trained at home.....should be a real sweetie.

No it can't at all. Except one thing. I am OCD picky when it comes to horses. And there aren't many I choose to go see. So when I step up and make the call, my gut is telling me this is worth my time. After talking to the seller, I was even more positive about taking a look just based on how she's handled him so far. My fear is I will like him a lot and he'll end up being HYPP positive. He hasn't been tested because the current owner helped her friend (who use to own him) out who's husband ended up being very sick. She agreed to buy him so he wouldn't loose out on a lot of ground training and become a wild child because of no handling.

So, we'll see. The price is more than fair as long as there's no glaring conformation issues when I actually get to put hands on him. I'll just have to buck up and move on if his testing comes out poorly. Which by the looks of it, would be a very sad thing.

WOOHOOO!! Thanks for this. She did tell me he's very araby in his attitude. That's a big plus for me. She also said he's in your pocket sweet and very willing.

And no no no no ... it's taken me like near a year to find this little guy LOL no stealing him from me yet!

He'll be a trail horse with some real low level endurance. Doing things like the ride across Florida, etc. No showing, just fun stuff! I ride western but if the opportunity came along to learn english, I wouldn't turn it down. Can't have enough knowledge!

I'll keep ya'll posted and thanks so much for the replies.
