He has a sweet face. I am sure he will look great with a few months of TLC. I hope you will post more photos in a few months after he is in better condition.

How funny that I was doing a search for his parents online and I found this thread with someone else looking to buy him and I wound up getting him. I spoke with the "flakey" seller for over two weeks and made the trip from Las Vegas all the way to Taos to get him. He's currently living at my brothers house in Albuquerque until we move in June.

He is definitely half Arab as he prances and tosses his head in his corral but I'm trying to keep him from any vigorous movements until his feet get fixed. His front left hoof is split really, really bad. He is going to need a lot of work but I'm hopeful that at almost 5 he's got potential.

Again, any thing you can point out to me would be great. Unfortunately, I didn't get a whole lot of pictures of him for review as I never thought I'd see a thread about him. Lol

I don't think that is the same horse as in the dankearab pic.
He should be much nicer looking when he gets some groceries in him.
I would not consider him part Arab just because he sticks his tail up and prances around , most horses when let loose will pop their tails and prance and snort.
Is his face dished ? He looks like he could be part gaited breed saddlebred, twh , paso fino .

He's cute.

But, honestly, I dunno how much I see Arab. XD

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Well unless it was a bait and switch I have his papers to register him as half Arab. Sire is a perlino QH, Sir Charles Raleigh and dam is registered bay arabian, FSMystery. The paperwork is signed by Kay Ward of Dankae Arabians and all the same markings are there on his socks. I also compared his socks to the pic in the Dankae pic vs the ones I took and they all start and end in the same places. I also saw the pictures from the seller from last summer and it's definitely the same horse in the Dankae pic because his blaze is the same. She just really let him slide downhill, he needs a lot of TLC.

I dug up some pics of what the seller had...I'm pretty convinced it's the same horse. I know he looks crazy different but everything matches up. Pretty hard to find palominos with similiar markings.

This is him with the seller from NM. Same horse from the Dankae website.

Sorry, I can't figure out how to ad more than one pic at a time.

This is also another pic from the seller in NM (the one I bought him from).

Will be great to see his transformation once he gets some TLC! Keep us posted on his progress.

Just have to mention... I really don't think it's hard to find a palomino with similar markings! Lol They all tend to have white socks and a blaze, his aren't super unique.

He is cute. I am glad you got/rescued him.
