despritally need colt critque










Yearling colt, ment to be casterated but his testicles are dropping he's around 13.5-14 hands at current and ment to mature at 14.5 was abused neglected and highly malnurished
Sorry pics are horrid

Looking at purchasing him from person who may sell to get an x racer so he can (person that is) be trained to track ride bought the colt "Lucky" so he could casterate and his gf show they broke up and he's looking at selling. What ya all think?

ummm can't see much from the pics. But it looks like he's skinny and needs to put on some muscle even for a foal. But this might be because of the neglection. He still looks a bit narrow, and has high withers. I think he's cute, but I think everyhorse is cute. Also I'm not to good on Confromation so...yeah! But I love his color and mane.

Very skinny, will need a fair bit of rehab, specially cause its happened at such a young age, he may have some developmental problems. Looks to have long sloping pasterns. The front right pastern looks really odd in the second last picture, but may just be the ankle.

Otherwise, he's very cute and would come up looking way better with some wieght on him and a healthy shine. It would balance him out a bit, his head wouldn't look so big and his neck would fill out. He could end up quite a looker with the proper care.

Also he looks to have somebad scarring on his left leg up where it meets his breast... I would ask how that happened and make sure he is completely sound and it won't affect him in the future.

Also, he's only a yearling so he will fill out and level out a lot more before he's done growing. Very hard to critique such a young boy. But I still think he's cute :]

The guy who owns him has been rasping and triming him his self and *shudders* don't know much about it he keeps rasping them to a point at the front I fixed it and he just did it again. The scarin gon his leg MAY *hides* be where my geldings pushed him through two strand electric fence
he's quiet picks all his feet up lets you pat all over and do pretty much everything, and he tells you when he's had enough. The guy wanted to break him to ride in the next 6 months and I said big no no
He needs lots of tlc and love and not breaking in till he is 2 and a half possibly even 3

He's cute, but that's about all I've got considering he is a yearling and they're bad pictures for critiquing. Once you get him back to a healthy weight I don't see why he couldn't make a pleasure horse if you have the time to make sure he is -mentally- sound.
