Okay, so I have never asked ppl what they thought of my gelding because sometimes I am afraid to hear the harsh reality, lol. But, he was free as a yearling because his owner didn't want him because he had no color to him. He is just a registered breeding stock paint with mainly QH in his background.
He just turned 2 yrs old in April of this year and he went to 30 days of training and did well. He already stands at 15.1 hh, I just measured him when I took these pictures on the 23rd of this month. I know that he is still down hill but he is only 2 yrs and of course still is growing. When he got back from the trainer's facility he came back very skinny and a dull looking coat so I have had him on Omolene 200, Nu-Image, and Horseshoer's Secret and it has done wonders for him. :)
I am not going to use him for any sports, he is just my buddy and will be used on trails and cattle drives. I also was hoping maybe to show him, not for the win but for the experience for him. In his ped it was nothing but halter horses and western pleasure, but I wasn't sure if he had the confirmation of a halter horse but I also know he has some filling out to do as he is only 2, so let me know what y'all think. Thanks.
Walking in from pasture when I called him.
His poor main was roached when he had a know that was pulling at his skin so bad he was getting blisters so I just hacked it all off and now waiting for the day when it all grows back out, lol.
He kept moving and turning to try and see me everytime I tried to get a good rear shot, lol.
Walking in the roundpen.
Scout and I, wish I could have got more of him in there, lol.
This is Scout without the saddle. The scab on his hip you see on his left side is something from the pasture I believe. We have a HUGE fly problem an he is probably rubbing on the shed or barn, just when I was getting him all spiffied up.
