Think he'll make a good ranch horse?

Anyway, just fooling around this afternoon. Ya'll think he might make a decent ranch horse someday?



He's a bit downhill, but not as bad as this picture looks. His front end is in a bit of a hole...and he's only 2.5 years old.


Sucks, I'll have to wait to start him when he grows into my saddle, it's quite a bit too wide for him still.



Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

LOL, thanks.

Roperchick, he's really not as big as he appears. I sticked him while I had him in there and he's only grown 1 inch since last summer...which puts him at 15.2.

MM, the best current pix I have of Rafe can be found here
Random pictures in the snow....

And there are also some here
Ha-ha!! New filly! Picture overload
