AQHA Colt I might take a look at.

I like him cause he's really cute, but I have a feeling that his mom and dad are cow horses and not pleasure horses like I am looking for. I am hoping to do HUS, Showmanship, and pleasure with him MAYBE Hunter Hack and Hunters. Overall I want to go and see him and check out his movement. He's a little over a year old and have very little training (as far as I know he's halter broke and leads and has trailered once). They are asking $1,500 but I am sure I can get them down to $1,000 if he has good movement. Ok hehe pictures I also have pics of mom and dad .

Very handsome little guy. Definantly looks like he has cow horse parents. The best thing to do is go out there and see how he moves and what not. Some cow bred horses have fantastic show horse movements, just depends. Just like some race bred horses make awsome western pleasure horses. I think he is worth a look. Looks like he toes out a bit in the front, cow hocked but he could grow out of it.

Hm, I personally don't really care for his build. His legs seem really skinny and his pasterns are VERY upright. His shoulder and croup appear to be pretty steep. You should go ahead and look at him if he is close but I don't think he will have the long, flowy, smooth strides you will be looking for. I have a feeling he would ride more like a jackhammer set on high. Plus, his RH fetlock looks swollen or misshapen.

Thnx you two! He is VERY close only about 5 or 6miles from here and he is super cute. I am thinking when I go and see him if doesn't have the movement I am looking for but a personality then I MIGHT take him to possibly re-sell as a trail horse?? We shall see. I do agree with you Smrobs as far as his pasterns but confo has never been my strong point >.< never hurts to go and look right? Thank you again you too.

Of course, confo doesn't always dictate how a horse will move. I have one that everything about him absolutely screams rough rider but he is the smoothest travelling horse I own, even if his strides are really short. LOL. Let us know how it goes.

He is super cute, but he is by no means a pleasure hores. He will look alot like the sire when he is older I would guess.

I think he is worth a try, and of course you could always work on him a bit and resell later if you just don't like how he moves after a while...

Just from a quick look he doesn't have a very pretty topline and his neck is horrible. He ties in almost at the bottom of his chest and his neck is really thick.

I think that you could find something a lot better, even for 1K.

His hind legs are too straight, haha, yes that is possible.

The sire has an ugly neck, and the colt's isn't attractive either. How tall is he? I don't know what they prefer in WP...

Hehe I was thinking the neck thing was just a personal pref >.< I really surprise myself. I've found another little filly I like, she's Halter bred with a little pleasure. You can def see the halter in her but it seems like her muscling is 'low' enough to where she won't become a soggy pig butt you know what I mean?

Thank you again everyone. I am probably going to take a peak at him next week after the holidays.
