    From your photobucket link he looks Ok. Some pictures do not show him in a good way and others seem fine.

    My only comment is mainly that he does not LOOK supple at all.

    He is very cute!!

    I agree though, he looks as stiff as a board.

    Ya, im not sure about the supple thing, it could be the pictures, but im not sure. I don't know if I want him though????? Im just humm, I love his color and his conformation, but im just not really sure about him. She is not sure that he could make a barrel horse, she said he can be lazy and also he likes to test the rider, he is a very smart horse. I just don't like his height, I like taller (16.0 hands) and he is only 15 - 15.1 hands. I don't know, she is the only one that wants to trade though. UGH, this is just a pain lol.

    Dunno what to tell you. He's cute, he's well put-together - I can't find anything glaring at me about his confo... maybe go see him, ride him, and then decide?

    In my opinion if you're not feeling that great about him and aren't very excited about him then don't get him! Wait til you find one you really like and are very excited about!

    I think if he's not to far it's worth a look in person. Looks like pretty decent confo...I like his shoulder.

    Now I did notice that he appears to be in a Mikmar combo bit or something similar. It's not that I think these are a horrible tool in the right hands, but it may be a red flag that they may be using it to control him, or trying to get him "supple". I don't know...I hate judging potential purchases with someone else riding...obviously that can change everything.

    Can't tell much about him except he looks butt-high, but your cat is very cute.

    The horse that's on the link http://s715.photobucket.com/albums/ww151/barrelgirl2/
    Is being ridden in a Mikmar Combination bit.
    Is this the same horse? Different pictures than I originally saw are up now.
