another critique, please.

i'm still interested in the second mare i posted pictures of a few days ago, but another one came up that caught my eye.

yes, i know it's a craigslist ad, but he's at the track. so he's also thoroughbred. which i what i want.

http://delaware.craigslist.org/grd/1880585917.html

the only thing that i don't really like about him is how much he stands under himself in the front. what do you guys think?

The ad you posted is of a TB mare? She looks nice, hard to say if she is truly standing under herself since she is just hanging out in the paddock. What does 'very quiet horse, with some training' mean I wonder? All that can really be said from the photo is that she is a black/brown TB mare in good condition!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Goodness, he really does stand underneath himself doesn't he? I like the mare you posted on the other thread better.

I think he's cute. He's the typical thoroughbred right off the track...which is not a bad thing

The pictures almost look like they stopped him in mid step or something had caught his eye and he is ready to move forward.

If you like him, go see him. It can't hurt to look and then you will get a real sense of his confirmation etc.

I really like that gray you posted, but I'm looking for something cheap that I can retrain. Thanks, though! And yeah. I think I may check him out.

Meet both horses, handle them, love on them, spend a little time with them and see what you feel.

Also keep in mind that the mare has been turned out with some let down time and it sounds like the gelding is still in training/race mode.
