Green Broke
Needs muscle, possibly cow hocked, is it me or does his head look too small for his neck. He's pretty. What would you be using him for?

I was mostly curious what everyone thought, i'm still not sure if i'm ready for my own horse. But it looks like we may be staying in MI for longer than I thought so who knows.

Just pleasure, arena work, maybe learning some dressage or little jumps.

Looks pretty good, doesn't seem to know a whole lot though.

Very cute, kind eye. For some reason the head and neck look a bit off, but I don't know much. I would get him if I were you :) .

He has, to me, the typical tb build. His bowed tendon, even though he received great vet care, it will worry me. If you get into jumping and really enjoy it, i'm not sure if he'd be suitable for that.

I do love his coloring and he does have a kind eye.

Would you mind putting work into a horse, or do you want a well broke horse?

He looks okay- I agree, not very experienced. I'm not too fond of his neck area, & he does need more muscling. That can be fixed however, with a lot of groundwork & of course hills!

He's cute, but I wouldn't get him. That's just me though. He needs some major muscling and some meat on his bones. Maybe it's just the pictures that make him look skinny. I also like my horses to be stockier, so that might be it too!

I personally like all the other horses on the tb page better than him. Just my personal, uneducated opinion!

That's what I was going to say... he looks like he would be a lot of work, but if that is what you are up to doing then get him and have a great time!!!

This is actually the first time I have seen a horse that I would say has a wasp waist (herring gut, whichever you like). The only things I've read about this is that you CAN build up the abdominal muscles (though I'm not sure of the excercises for that). Just be aware that a horse like this can be susceptible to back injuries until you put some muscle on.
