    He has a slightly steep shoulder but a nice short barrel.

    He seems to be quite light in bone. As he matures and gets heavier you may wish he had more bone.

    Agree with Elana! He is very light boned and you can see already that he's going to carry some body on him as he matures, so that would be a concern. And he's not ewe necked...LOL, so don't worry about that. I actually like his neck and it will fill in across the top with muscle and he gets worked and matures....he has a killer neck in the making.

    That is not a horse I would drive 7 hours to look at. It is just an average horse.

    Well, I do like his breeding which was a huge factor for me. Otherwise I probably wouldn't drive an extra couple of hours to go look. At this point, given where I live, I am already looking at 3 hours plus drive to look at some better bred horses. They are fewer and farer between here. Don't get me wrong there are nice horses here but many do not have papers. If I want to do breed shows or a futurity prospect then I need the papers.
    Matter of fact yesterday they had a big horse sale in town, they gathered a big bunch of horses off the rez because they were out of feed. Good lookingl horses- they went for an average of $150 a piece. But no papers of course. If I was just looking for some more ranch horses then we would of bought some. Plus my husband wants to put together a bucking horse string but we just don't have facilities right now.

    And I am not too worried about how pretty his head is or his coloring, I just want them to have the cow, smarts, willingness and the conformation to support it all :)
