Critique another AQHA gelding.

These pics were taken awhile ago as I am aware he's skinny. This is what the lady told me in an email

His reg. Name is~Cool Knight Cash Bar

Yes he is a quarter horse and he is registered AQHA. He is not a bad guy. He is a little timid so I think that building a bond would be a good thing. I have a couple others as well. I have a 3 or 4(would have to look for sure) year old paint filly that her papers are in the APHA that is a little quieter. He is not bad he has just not been handeled a whole lot. I think that he would do really well with bonding. The training that he has right now is about halter training. I have not started him under saddle at all. I do not like to push them really hard when they are young. YEs I would take $500 cash for him if you came and picked him up.

My biggest concern is that he was allowed to get that skinny, and such an important developmental age. Who knows how that will impact his long term growth and development. I know a lot of it is weight, but his head looks huge for his body, and his legs look so frail.

Yeah I do agree with AK about the weight, we bought some
Skinny horses once and got in a fix with the humane society
Once, really stressful, I promise you don't want to deal with that.

He is very pretty though, I suggest if you REALLY want him,
Tell them you are concerned about his weight and will maybe
Think about purchasing him when you see an improvement. :)

Wow he definitely. Needs a LOT of work...he needs to gain lots of weight, & needs training you have the time for all that?
He is pretty otherwise...but I totally agree with AK.

I say get him if you really want to.

You have to ask yourself WHY you sold Ginger - partially because she was too much horse, right? This is a young horse, and if you're ready to take on a youngster, then great, go for it... if not, then take a pass. It is no small task to take on such a horse... but I feel like I've preached this over and over, you're probably sick of it.
Best of luck if you decide to go this route.

Yeah id be getting experienced help. But im probably guna pass anyways. Too stressful.

As well as being skinny I'm not a huge fan of his conformation, I would pass and keep looking.

I don't think his confo is too bad for being a baby...but he looks wormy to me. :(

In the market today, you can find lots of well-broke horses in the same price range :)

Good luck!
