my new rescue

well now arizona is well on the road to be a normal 4 year old stallion i have a bit more time on my hands for another project

i picked this little guy up for $100. the people who had him had done a very poor job of feeding and looking after him and i really wanted to get him out of there. i offered them a $100 and thankfully they said yes.

we arent sure on breed but im almost 100% sure there is some quarter horse and stock horse in there. im not too fussed on breed anyway as my plan for him is to be my trail horse. both my other qh's are going to do reining and i want something else just for going out on a cruisy ride.

im not sure how he will end up. he isnt perfect but he isnt put together too bad either and with good food and vitamins etc i think he will come up nice. he is only 16 months old at the moment.

if anyone has any ideas on breed let me know :)

yes he was cheap but he is very skinny, unregisterable & unhandled (although i can register him palomino). i spend my days devising new ways to catch him lol but he is getting better. hes inquisitive and willing but scared

That's good that he's getting better at catching.
My riding club haa a boarder pony that hates being caught and she would turn her back legs towards you and kick out at you. Luckily the boarders have decided to sell her. She is a dangerous little pony..
Are you going to register him or just leave him unregistered?

if he grows into a nice horse and i dont geld him then i will register him. otherwise i wont. im not looking at showing with him or anything so im not too fussed if im not going to breed with him. but thats a big IF. ive got time to decide anyway. because he is undernourished his boy bits havent dropped yet so i couldnt geld him yet anyways

theres very little chance of that as im in australia. twh's are here i think but theres only a couple of studs and you pay big $$$$ for them here. his face to me is very similar to my australian stock horse x qh gelding.

who knows lol it will become more evident as he starts to put on weight etc

yeah my qh is an australian quarter horse. there is a slight difference although he does have enough imported genes that i can double register him with the american quarter horse association
