    Just For Fun

    Ok, below is a random picture of a horse...

    Can you:
    1. Name the breed
    2. Name the price
    3. Critique!

    Looks like a QH

    Price...i'd say about 1000-2000

    He has a really straight back and a straight croup. He's built evenly though. I just don't like how straight he is across the back.

    I'd guess:
    Breed: Quarter Horse or a solid Paint
    Price: $3000

    Critique:
    - short neck
    - flat, long back
    - straight shoulder
    - boxy head
    - fairly upright pasterns
    - pointy hip

    Things I do like:
    - Looks balanced overall (doesn't have anything shockingly wrong with him, I was being picky... he's not my cup of tea, but I wouldn't discourage someone from buying him)
    - clean legs
    - wither attaches fairly deep into the back, which makes a horse able to get off its forehand

    I'd also guess QH, but could be an appendix or as someone mentioned an unmarked paint.

    He's not conformationally stunning but not bad. But I think it's near impossible to price him without knowing his training. I've seen some "interestingly" conformed horses blow people away in the jumper ring that are easily worth 6 figures. But if he's not broke he isn't worth $1000. OR if he's broke and bombproof he's worth more then broke with a crazy streak in him. Who knows!

    1.) definitely American Quarter Horse
    2.) Depends on breeding, training, disposition, registration, and show background. Lowest I'd say is about $1500 highend is about $6000
    3.) Here is what I see, this horse is built uphill, nice legs, ok balance cept I think the back is a bit longer then desired, I don't care for the neck looks funny to me, but then half my horses necks look funny to me :P, top line looks like it could use some strengthening. Nice Bone. Kind expression, eyes are a tad small. Neck is on the thicker side. Pretty horse!!

    I'd say definitely qh, and as far as the price I'd say between 2,000, and 3,000. Critque- VERY straight back He looks like a healthy weight and he doesn't look like there are that many problems with him but then again I am not a good critquer.

    Unless he has a show record he isn't worth anywhere close to $8500.00
