My favorite kind of paint actually (the Hidalgo kind I call them ha ha)
His pasterns do look long & he is butt high but that's usually the case with horses this young.
Overall he looks fairly straight. I think he'll develope nicely over time & you have one heck off a looker!
Same :) I just LOVE sorrels and overos! So why not get one that is both!
I hope he turns out pretty good because I hope to leave him as a stallion. Will be getting his OWLS test done once I can.

Oh lol don't let that sweet eye fool you! He's a lil devil when my mare isn't there to teach him manners XD But when I am not there she is teaching him well (but yes she isn't is mom though just so everyone knows).
I am hoping he will get me noticed in the show pen oneday :)

I was going to ask if you were going to leave him intact. I would really like to see how he turns out! I hope he does well in the show ring. He sure is flashy. What do you plan on doing with him? He could make a really cute reiner or a nice looken cow horse.

Well until we did the measurement test and I found out he is only suppose to grow to be 14.3hh I WAS going to use him as a jumper, but my back-up plan for him is a barrel horse. Hopefully even with his higher set hocks and such he still turns into a nice barrel horse, but we shall see. I hope to at least train him for it and see how he does.
My back-up back-up plan is reining lol but i'm not sure if his conformation would get in the way of that also.
He does a decent job at turning on his hind end already though and seems to like checking out the barrels so that is what I HOPE to focus him on.

You should train him for all of it! Sonador Jumps solid 3 foot courses and free lunges at 5. She knows the barrel paturn and she knows a bit of the reining monuvers. She has even worked cows. AND she is HALTER BRED! All these things rely more on heart that conformation. Obviosly Conformation is improtant but as long as you take your time in starting him, he could be an all around nice horse!

The more he knows the easier it will be to market him when you go to put him up for stud.

Yes my mare is actually just like that :)
She is my all arounder, and I will use my colt for many things as well, but for a breeding stallion its good to have at least one event he can excel in to a much higher level. And I am hoping he turns out to be a champ in one event or another, because breeders today want to breed champion horses, not "meh" horses lol. At least with todayís market. But as for the jumping, unless he manages to hit 15hh I won't be doing that competitively with him. I like taller horses for jumping as a personal preference, and for the height and level I was hoping to go to 14.3hh probably wonít cut it.
Next horse I get will be a pinto coloured WB! Lol thatís my next goal horse wise haha.

Just wondering...your horse...is she named for Sonador off of Dreamer?
Lol I used to call my mare that ALL the time for a nick name XD Now I just call her T.

yes it is. Lol I got her when I was 13 and I had just seen the movie.

I was always convinced that I was going to get a gelding so I only had boy names picked out in my head and she was a surprise so I didnt get a lot of time to name her. She came from the breeder so she didnt come with a barn name. The just called her the Imprimis Filly.

I had called my mare that because she is sorrel and has a star and reminded me of Dreamer/Sonador...but T was just more nickname like.
