    Pony critique

    Yepp, I know he's thin - the guy said he got him from the auction January
    His coggins says 11, but the guy thinks he's 16 - 18..
    How tall does he look?
    The uy said the mare in the background is 14.2
    The guy thinks he's about 11.0hh..How about y'all?
    Here's the pics:
    (Oh, and he's asking 150.00..too cheap?)

    He needs his feet trimmed BAD. He looks post legged and club footed on one foot I'm hoping its just the picture.

    Edit- I just noticed, it looks like the bit needs to be highered, its sitting very low, and it looks way to big for him and possibly too harsh, he's got his mouth open in almost all the pics.

    Looks club footed, and really needs a good farrier job
    Hindquarters a tad bit higher than the withers

    I do like him though...he's pretty, has a kind eye to him, and looks like he would make a great kids horse.

    As Abby pointed out...the bit it probably too harsh since the mouth is open. I'd defiantely change the bit to maybe a snaffle or something that's not harsh

    Just a note:
    The child in the pictures should at least be wearing proper footwear... I would be very leery of anyone selling a horse that isn't even wearing the proper footwear.
    That, and the pony is in pretty poor condition - personally I wouldn't let anyone else ride him until he gains some weight.

    Sorry AngelGurl, I know this stuff is probably out of your control, but it makes me very nervous to see stuff like that.

    Honestly, that poor thing needs what Fugly calls an "upgrade."

    Personally, I think 150 is too much.

    I'd buy him... if nothing else to give him a good home.

    I like that little guy. It breaks my heart to see those guys in such rough shape sometimes. He is going to need some groceries, his feet and teeth done and updated with all his shots but I think you've gotten yourself a little jewel.

    I wouldn't be riding him until he is healthier. I would also find another bridle with a gentle bit instead of what you've got on him in the pics.

    This guy looks like he had it rough and deserves a good home.
