I have been lurking around this thread for a while but I didn't have a horse so I didn't sign up until today.
Well, this saturday I bought a horse. He is a 7 year old gelding. A plain jane bay. I wanted a horse that could go western pleasure and possibly hunter under saddle. I don't really show but I love how these horses move, their conformation, and personalities.
I was looking for a little less than a year and I finally found one I wanted.
I hope I picked a good one. After years of training problem horses and starting horses I really wanted somthing that at least had the basics. I love training but I was out of horses for almost a year and I wanted somthing I could at least hop on and ride right away. This guy has the attitude of an old steady eddie but he w/j/l RIGHT off your leg. IMHO he has a pleasure of a mind. I'm just not sure about his conformation . He sat out in a feild on a TB breeding farm for over a year with little work and becuase PA had a tough winter with a lot of snow he really came through the winter hard. He was shaggy and shedding which didn't help but he was a little thin, or just lacking muscle and fat (which is good if he wasnt working anyway) but he was a dream to ride. I rode him w/j/l both directions and that was all I needed!
He doesnt come home until this weekend and I want to get him cleaned up and bathed before showing him off so all I have right now is his pedigree. Pictures to come though!
I thought I would be cool to get opinions on the pedigree then post the horse in a few days to see if your opinions change or stay the same!
