Might be trading for this? What do ya'll think?

Hello everyone. I have a couple horses for sale, and one person asked me if I would be interested in a trade for a belgian (thats what she said) draft. I do like the looks of him, although I couldn't keep him for too long, I know someone who would want to use him for trail riding for a while, and I could just give her a free lease. Anyways, I know he is a 3 y/o and is green broke to ride, and he's up to date on everything. I'd have to go see him to get any more info, because she doesn't answer all my questions that I've asked. . . Hmmm, lol. Makes me think a little bit, but otherwise I think it would be fun! I've messed with a couple drafts, but have never ridden one or anything, so idk. What do you think?





Also, the horse I would be trading is a green broke mare that I got super thin and have put most of her weight back on, although she still needs another 50 lbs probably. I would think since they both ride, that it wouldn't be a bad trade. What do ya'll think?

This is the mare I would be trading. The photo was taken almost 5 weeks ago. She has picked up a lot more weight than from this photo.

I don't know much about critiquing conformation, but if they're about the same riding level, I'd say go for it. I like draft crosses and he looks like a solidly built boy.

I don't really see the belgian part. He's a nice looking horse though.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

He's definitely not full Belgian, but very well could be half Belgian or something to that effect because he does have the build of one.

If they're both same riding ability, I'd say go for it. Just make sure you go to look at him and try him out first to ensure that it is the truth (Although I'm sure you already plan on that :) )

He looks cute, he looks like he has some more growing to do, but he is cute. Going to be a very stocky boy, so being a trail horse might just be best for him as he might be limited as to what he can do, if he stays as stocky as he is right now.

Good luck!

I don't see much Belgian in him either- but he looks nice! :)

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

I just wanted to add that I had a Half Belgian mare, and she looked similar in build to him. If you look at his legs and his neck, he definitely has it in him. I'm not sure if its infact Belgian, but he does have draft in him. I'm assuming its belgian just because of his size. But, since he's only 3... you know how that goes.
And he does definitely have the feathering on his legs to go with the Belgian.

Just wanted to add that :)

He certainly have a belgian with him. But not the purebreed one. He looks very cute (although a little fat :) ). As said if the riding level is about the same and he's health and quiet(!) I'd trade...

I like him!!!! If you have all the I's dotted and T's crossed...what's life without a bit of spice?!?! Trade if you like 'em!
