UM, I really don't like that horse at all. He looks very immature for a 7 year old and his confo is pretty poor. He has very small feet that are upright and his legs are too straight (pasterns and hocks). His back is incredibly short and it makes him look funky under saddle. He carries his head way too high for what I would consider "well broke" and it makes me curious why he is still in a training fork. I wouldn't pay $200 for a horse like that let alone $2800. IMO, just not a very impressive horse.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

By the pictures alone I would have guessed him to be 2 or 3, not 7... weird. I'm with smrobs on this one :)

I also agree, he does look very young and immature.
I really like his colour though. ^-^
Reminds me of a mare I used to ride. :P

That looks like a two year old. I would never guess that horse was 7. I would pass.

I do have to agree. He doesn't look 7. He looks 2. I wouldn't pay 2800 for him either. I'm with everyone on this one. Doesn't look too good. Very cute tho =]

The last photo appears to be an old photo of the horse as a youngster. I can see the maturity in the other photos - especially his muscle mass in the 3rd photo.

That chest and those legs are NOT a two or three year olds.
