(Unexpected to me too, I tried hard to choose two horses which were "small" (relatively speaking) in hopes of ending up with a foal which would be about 15.3- 16hh )... So I am hoping someone who will truly appreciate that much size will come along and want to make him their future sporthorse (or driving horse)... If the right person doesn't come along for him, I guess I'll just need to get over my fear of heights

    Oh my gosh he is just stunning! I have always been partial to Clyd crosses since I had 2 jumping lessons on a Clyd/thoroughbred cross. Lol. And I must say he is drool worthy! If you ever clone him send it my way ;)

    I would <3 love to have him here on the property w/me!!! Love love love it!!!
    But your all the way in Canada :(
    I currently have a 16.3hh and for future will be looking for a draft..
    Just for pleasure trail rides no competition or anything like that.
    I have the rm for him and the heart, I just wish right now.
    I think you could get use to his height - I am with mine now..He seems like he has a lot of power but if your a confident rider you will be fine..Just don't think of the the bad things that can happen only the good outcome.:)

    It isn't actually "me" who has issue with his size, but I have a small lesson program I was hoping he'd be just the right size for - big bodied but not super tall - to suit my beginner adults that are tall, but nervous.
    If he ends up very patient and quiet it might still work out... But most of my students find even working near his roughly 17hh dam intimidating (she is very gentle though), so she gets used for students who have been with me awhile (my program is about conquering fear, and most come to me with absolute horror stories about their experiences with horses). My goal with this colt was to get the dam's substance and bone, on a shorter horse - it didn't work quite as well as I'd hoped as I have been told to expect him to go taller than her

    I am also not convinced he will be quiet enough, to fit into the program I have... But I'm willing to give him some time before I decide that, we'll know better what his temperment is like when he's a bit older with some more "life experience" behind him... Right now, and since birth, he has been bold, curious and a bit independant but not terribly sure of himself, and paired with incredible size and power - which is fine for someone with experience and confidence, less suitable for someone nervous or just learning... After he grows up and has training on him he might work out just fine. (Which is why I have been insanely fussy about inquiries - I wouldn't MIND keeping him, but if someone experienced came along and just "had to have him" I am prepared to let him go.)

    I see unicorn, I thought you would keep him for yourself..Yes definitely could be intimidating for schooling. "I am working w/mine now who is a monster - If I were to sell him he would intimidate intermediate riders and beginners" So I am real stern and particular w/my training.

    I NEED to have him! If you do decide to sell him, please message me. I am in love with this guy. We are out in Alberta(not sure where you are). Distance isn't an issue.
