    Going to check out this horse.

    Hi everyone. I am going to check out this grade quarter horse on sunday. I know the pictures arent the best. There is only one good critiqueing picture and all of the others are just to see what he looks like...also some of the pictures are small..all in all the pictures arent amazing but that's all I have to work with. Not looking for so much as a critique but just to see what yall think about him. You can critique if you would like. It wont hurt me any so just rip him apart.
    Also, he really caught my eye because he looks exactly like my old horse. But this horse came from florida so who knows.
    Info-
    Breed- grade QH
    Age- 9?
    Height- I wana say around 14.3 to 15 hands...she had him up at 15.2 but a guy came and took a look at him and told her he is alot shorter then that but he's definitely taller then 14.3.
    He also is barefoot and his name is Blue.
    A lady who owned him about 5 years ago when he was in florida had him around for her kids and grandkids to just plop around on and ride. This is what she said about him: he has no bad habits that I am aware of .....he will follow you anywhere in the pasture...has great stable manners....grooming manners, etc.....the kids rode him, washed him, groomed him, saddled him themselves...he's just a really nice horse...
    Now the lady who has him now is older and doesnt really ride much anymore. She said he is very quiet he just needs miles. The only thing sketchy is that she posted an ad on a different website a few months back that said he needed an expierenced rider..yet she told me he's quiet...so im thinking maybe just an expierenced rider to get him back into shape and into work or ? not sure. But here are all the pics. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
    (and sorry for the essay!)

    He looks like a nice horse. Maybe she's wanting an experienced rider so he doesn't get mistreated?

    What grabbed your attention on this horse? If anything go out and ride the horse to see how she really is.

    He looks alot like my old horse and I thought it was my old horse. That's what really grabbed my attention but I like the way he looks. He's stocky and built good; in my opinion. I just wanted opinions on him to see what everyone else thought.

    I like him, he reminds me a lot of our kid horse, Nester. I really don't see anything about his conformation to be alarmed about. His back may be just a touch long but that won't matter unless you are doing something that requires a short back. From what I can see, he appears to have amazing legs and feet, he looks like what you would expect to see in a working ranch horse, strength and durability.

    He could certainly do with a diet and a good workout routine but he looks like a sweetie. Like someone else said, she may be requesting an experienced person just so that she'll know he goes to someone who will treat and ride him the way he deserves (not yanking on his mouth, or flopping around on his back like a sack of potatoes).

    I would certainly consider him worth going to check out.

    Looks really good, but in my opinion he's got a little belly on him. And some horses can tend to be cranky when they are, for lack of a better term "fat and sassy" . Just encase you were thinking about putting kids up there. But honestly from the pictures he seems to have a very quiet eye and looks happy with the people he's around. I'd say once you check him out make sure you get a vet check to rule out anything he might have that may not have physical signs. And if you like him buy him :)

    Thats what I said. He doesnt have the 'crazy eye' that some horses seem to have and he is very stocky--which I love. He is very resonably priced as well for a 9 year old. She was asking 1000 but told me she will take 850 which is really cheap for a horse. Thanks so much for your guys' opinions.
    Anyone else? :)
