Big Black Thoroughbred Gelding...

So here is another maybe. His name is Glad to be here aka Arnold. He is 9yrs old 16.2 hands tall. He is fully broke, english and western. Been used on drill team and started in gaming. He's pretty much bombproof, nothing really spooks him, he's calm and kind. So heres the thing. I am a complete western girl, and he just looks...... so english. I mean he is pretty stocky for a tb. I also worry about if he is going to be a hard keeper. Were I live, it gets down to the negatives, he would have a blanket and a stall, but still. Im just such a QH girl lol, and he just soooo english to me. I asked the owner if she could get me a video of him in a western saddle. So anyways there are three videos of him, the first one is confo (check out the booty on him!), then the other two are riding ones. In the videos, that's fog that's rolling in, when she did these videos there was a very heavy fog, it was raining really hard and the wind was blowing, he didnt care a bit. So anyways, let me know what you think. O ya his price is $1500 (obo) which I think is extremly good.

so the confo things that stick out to me about him, is he looks very long bodied, and the way he stands on his front legs, looks a little odd??? I mean he looks like he moves sound and everything he just stands odd on them. ANd he is definantly cow hocked in the back, pretty strait legs in the front.

Hi, I think he is absolutly gorgeous. I love him! He's got quite nice confo... I understand your problem via the whole thing, but why don't you lease him, instead of selling him? Because if I owned him, I could never sell him!!

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

No offence (even though he is not yours) but there is somethings I don't like the way he is put together. I don't know heaps about confo but these are my thoughts, I could be very off.

In my opinion he has too long of a body, too short legs, and his croup is too high. Sometimes his front pasterns look too sloped - but I don't know about the correct angles, they just don't look ideal to me, and sometimes his neck just looks too small/narrow for his body.

Also, his hindquarters don't look like what I would want from a TB. He seems quiet though, and well behaved, but I thought he was hollow when ridden but I guess if you're a western person it doesn't matter. Temperament seems good.

Despite that, I think he is a very nice horse. See how things go, and then if you feel he is the "one", get him. Or maybe take him on a trial or something like that, just to see how he is for a couple of days. You can't go wrong. ; )

ya very true. She has a couple people coming out to look at him, so if he doesnt sell, she is going to get me a video of him under a western saddle.
