I have not ridden him yet. He was brought home Saturday. I will start with groundwork this week. I believe he was gelded very late and am wondering if that contributed to his large wide neck. He is well behaved but has not been out with any other horses. He does move like he will be fun to ride tho!

I think he's a total hunk; no critique from me!

Definately downhill and his neck is a bit shorter than what I like to see on TB's but he has a very well built body. Other than those two tiny and miniscule critiques he is a gorgeous boy =)

He's got a short neck and he's downhill.

Did the owner say why he was unraced? Did you get a vet check on him? He's a nice looking horse, and I hope there isn't any underlying issues about him as far as him being free.

I like his stocky look - never would have guess TB!

Aww, he is beautiful!
His head seems really small compared to his body though, like his mother's.

He is adorablee!

Thank you all for the kinds words about Olly. I think he is just wonderful. I see no issues with his movement but have scheduled for the vet to come out. I would have taken him regardless. He needed a home and I had one to give. I have no expectations at this point so I'm sure I will not be disappointed. The majority of the OTTB's that I work with have one issue or another and are still capable of making wonderful pasture pets, flat/dressage/trail horses. If the vet see's something to be concerned about, we will address it. I can only be happy because I know where he could have ended up had I not taken him.

Yep, looks like my morgan: huge deep chest, and a rather large butt...But for free, why not? I think that he is b-e-a-u-tiful. Congrats. (Free horses are the best kind!)
