Hi guys! Here is my gelding at 16 months. He stands 14.2, 950 lbs. (according to my Purina weight tape). Any thoughts?
Plan is for him to be a trail horse, but I am curious what you guys think is aptitudes may be. I know he is far from perfect, but I will go into more detail later. Right now I want unbiased opinions.
How large do you think he will mature to? The vet keeps saying "that's going to be a big horse" and he hasn't even seen him for 6 months.
So I sort of wanted to show him off, but I also want to hear honest critiques as well. I promise I won't get my feelings hurt.
Also, he has NOT been backed. I am just saddling him and letting him stand tied to learn patience and get used to tack. I am a heavy rider, so it won't be until his 3 yr old year that I send him out to get actual saddle training. The trainer I have my eye on is pretty light, but I have to be able to put mileage on him when I get him back so I am going to wait until the spring of his 3 year old year.
