Sure does! He is cute! As for the kill pen....there are just so many out there, and way too many of them end up there. There is actually a link to Camelot that is typically updated Thurs am's with last nights "leftovers". Tells you how to purchase them, etc. Don't forget the quarantine!

Looks like they haven't done it yet today....sometimes it is 7 am, others noonish.....
There are some really nice looking horses there.....

Well isn't he just too cute! He looks great! You would never be able to tell about his past of being skinny and under muscled. You're doing a great job with him!

I believe you actually purchased him, not rescued him.

Your photos are not straight on so it is hard to say. He looks down hill. His back looks a little long. His neck looks a little short. (All those things could be from the photo angle.)

I didnt purchase him. I didnt pay for him. I worked with a rescue to get him. Anyways, I saved him from slaughter.

He actually is short backed. I will get better pictures outside. He is a little downhill right now. He is growing. His withers are about 14.1 and his hip is about 14.2 1/2.

Im sorry the pictures are not great, I will get better ones.

Beautiful horse! I would definitely say full QH as well. He reminds me a lot of my QH mare that I rescued. Only thing I can see confirmation wise is in the 2nd picture it looks like he stands under himself with his back legs a bit. And it amazes me some of the horses that are sent to the kill pen :(

Looks pretty good to me...he's got a huge hip, that's for sure! He should make a good riding horse. He's a bit hip high at the moment, but he could catch up still. Over all, though, he's fairly decent, and should hold up for quite some time.

Lol not to go off topic but i've never seen anyone cross tie that way :)

I havent either. The trainer cross ties the youg horses that way. So if they do act up it they still have the same feeling as if they are tied once (at the bottom).

That's how everyone where I'm taking lessons cross ties! I will be honest, I had never seen anyone cross tie a horse before - my aunt's horses just sat there and soaked up whatever attention you had to give them.. And if she got a new horse & they wouldn't stand she'd just work with them until they did..
