    Just for fun..

    What do you think of my horse? I'm not planning on selling him, although I do wonder what he would be worth. He is 4yrs old, and here are his lines:


    He is now a gelding, and stands around 15hh. He is very sweet and a great trail horse. He does however need a confident rider to make him work in the pen. I would not recommend him for a beginner because he can be lazy. I think he would be great for trail or rail classes. He is very smooth to ride even at a trot.

    Conformational, he is weak in the hind quarters and toes out in the back. The farrier says his hooves are perfect though, and he has never had shoes. I got him as a late weanling and started him lightly at two. He lunges; stands tied quietly, bathes, and is UTD on everything. Here are some pics, would love to hear some feed back.

    I like him! I love his color and his face. He looks very gentle natured. He looks like if you let him, he'd sleep all day with his head tucked in your armpit!

    Why are you selling him? If you don't mind me asking.

    Thank you, he is very gentle but curious. I think he would like to eat my shirt if I tucked his head under my arm.

    I'm not selling him, just wondering what he might be worth.

    Thanks! His mom was a bright sorrel and his daddy was black. Don't know where he got the flaxen mane from lol. I got him for free, just had to pay $300 for shipping.

    I love his face, he has a beautiful head and a kind eye. He's well bred, he's got cowhorse blood like docs sug, doc bar, zan parr bar. Very nice! The only problem is his hindquarters are weak, thus it would be hard to use him for any tough cow work or something, but he would be an awesome trail horse. I would say he is worth about $2,000,

    You could probably get 3500-4000 off of him here. Calm quarter horses are very popular.

    He is slightly inbred. But his bloodlines are nice.
