    Possible Buy; Critique

    Name: Archy
    Age: 15
    Breed: Standard/Appy
    Gender: Gelding
    Height: About 15 hh

    Found this guy in the paper with a listing of $75.00 or else he's free. He's got "good feet" but hasn't had a real farrier in about 5 years. He hasn't been ridden in 3 years, but had perfect ground manners when haltered.

    Please critique him, sorry for such bad angles, I hope they help out in some way. I can see he has high withers, and needs work for sure on his feet. Thank you.

    I think part of the high withers has to do with his being underweight and thus lacking muscle. With some good groceries, hoof care, and a good training program to get him back into shape, he looks like he could fill out nicely.

    Ooo I crossed my legs when I thought of riding him bareback! OUCH with those withers! Lol.
    He's cute though, he looks very kind.
    I think with muscling and some weight he would be very pretty.
    Poor guy, I would get his feet done right away!

    Are these pics last winter? How does he look now? Just curious....as he could look totally different by now. Have you seen him or just going by what they are sending/telling you?
    Going by these pics, he looks kind, as already stated, but needs care and groceries....

    Looks like a project

    Thanks everyone, yes he will be a project horse to work with. These are from this winter earlier this year. I will be viewing him in person next week and will take my own photos.
