    I think she looks beautiful the way she is, very feminine looking, lol. I also think her head looks perfect. Everyone has their own standards though. As long as you like her and she suites your needs, that is all that matters. Good luck. :)

    I think she's a nice mare.

    It concerns me that they can't spell Palomino. If I had a horse of an odd color, I sure as heck would be able to spell it.

    She looks a bit long in the back to me. A good solid QH should be more "square" than "rectangular" if you ask me, but that's just my opinion. Could also just be the way she is standing in the photo, and the fact that she isn't muscled up and in shape. It's so hard to critique a picture...

    I don't think it matters if she spelt palomino wrong.. typing mistake.. no big deal

    Also, her yearling colt is for sale.. I think he is free with the mare, or a couple hundred extra.

    I might be interested in him as well.. I could train him with the help of my aunt (horse person).
    I know lots about training horses from books, and computer articles, but not much in real life.
    I feel it would be a learning experience.

    He is already halter broken.. I would start with desensitizing him, then onto voice commands, then some lunging, then crossing creeks, and going past strange objects, then pony him with the mare, then start with riding training.

    I would train him to be solely a pleasure horse.. mainly trails, barrels, western, and maybe a bit of english.

    What do you think?


    And, don't tell me, "don't buy the colt, because its lots of work"... and "you need previous training experience."

    As.. I have heard this many times before.. instead maybe some helpful tips on how to train a yearling..

    Also, should they be gelded at this age? Or older?

    Woops... the mares pics didn't work.. here:

    They are usually gelded before they are yearlings... not sure the exact month...

    He is cute, but seems a little small, but maybe it's just the pictures. Considering what his dam sounds like.. which is amazing... he probably will be too, and would be great for what you will be using him for eventually.

    Okay, so I guess if I were to get him, I would need to geld him right away?

    He will be growing more :) Not sure how much though, but he's an appendix and his mommas 16hh, so if the stud is somewhere around that height as well, the colt should end growing around 15.2-16.1hh?

    Yes, you would need to geld him right away. =) I once knew a lady who had a mare and a yearling colt running together because the seller of the colt told her that the colt was "too young"... Guess who had a new baby the next spring?
    If you guessed the mare, you're right!

    They're both super cute by the way. =)

    I don't know if you noticed, but in the mare's ad it states that the colt is gelded.
