Critic Weanling (8 mo)

Critic my colt please!! He's an 8 month old pinto colt. His mom was a saddlebred and his father was a cutting QH. I realize he might not be a halter horse but he's my baby and please no "he deserves to die because he isnt registered or a showhorse" comments. He's been bred as a trail horse and he's everything i wanted. He handles easier than a lot of the grown horses i know and he's even been handled by children as young as 5. He's fearless and doesnt ever try to act bratty. He's used to dogs and trucks and nothing phases him so he's everything i dreamed he'd be. Anyways, im not opposed to critic (obviously) just make sure its not rude. Thanks As far as i can tell, his back legs are a little winged out. Also he has a shorter neck than i wouldve liked but otherwise i think he's a pretty good looking guy!! And yes he does need his hooves trimmed. Weve got the farrier coming out tomorrow.









And just for fun!!

Over all, he's nice. He's pretty, has a nice hip, head, and shoulder. Like you said, his back legs do swing out but I think he'll have no problem being a trail horse.

Sorry that its not so much a critique as it is a complement.

I think he's adorable. I'd say get those feet attended to though :)

I know the feeling! I just switched farriers for that very reason. Lol.

Be careful though, I might just come get him and keep him as my trail horse. >.>

You can try haha! The only thing he doesnt do is UNLOAD. We have a stock trailer and he's scraped his leg one too many times getting out. He doesnt come out forward or backwards. Had to force him out when we got his shots and coggins x.X Were getting a trailer with a ramp soon. My ottb wount load without one.

He sure is a looker, I LOVE him, a little jealous too He looks like a complete doll, and I bet he's gonna grow into a real good lookin' trail horse. Flashy, sturdy, and a good head on em. What more could a trail rider want? Happy for you!!!!
