Ya know, I am gonna come steal him from you! (where do you live btw??) LOL j/k I think he's a BEAUTIFUL mover, he's quiet, doesn't fuss, no tail wringing, no head bobbing, etc. Wish my horses moved like him under saddle, since I have all rescue horses which have been severely abused they don't go so well, lol.

I think he's a fine choice, true a bit skinny, but hey I like a FAT horse! LOL Mine are pudgy. He looks good to me movement wise.

Thank you, I've been told his movement has improved since I got him, but I don't know about that. I only wish he was as quiet to jumps as he is hacking around...

Oh and I live near the DC Maryland boarder and my horses are kept in Maryland

Maybe he just wants to be an English Pleasure horse? That's not so bad is it?

Oh he loves to jump, he just gets a little excited over jumps under 2'6",
but I've thinking of showing him in a few english pleasure classes just to see how he does.

I might take my mare as well, but she gets nervous at shows.

I think he's a cutie.......I'm still working on the Confo one initial first impression is that he is light on the bone down below for his body size.

it looks to me like he is camped under in the front. his neck looks off to me to but i dont think its because its a ewe neck but possible. even though the pics are on an angle it does look as though he is somewhat downhill. even if not by as much as it looks. he also seems to have slightly long pasterns but once again, he is a tb :)

i have to admit that so far im not a fan of his conformation but i do think he looks ever so sweet :) with more muscle and condition though he would probably scrub up quite nicely

i will watch the videos later and comment

"I whisper but my horse doesnt listen...So I yell!!...He still doesnt listen"
