    I really like his build, he's a bit bum high yet but he's just two now. Here's his pedigree:

    Shilohs Star Player Quarter Horse

    Here's are the pictures I got. He's $500. Not bad. Pictures are hard to tell but you can kinda get an idea.

    He's more than a little bum high if those are photos of a 2 year old! If they are of him as a yearling I would want more recent photos and start to wonder why they don't have any if he is for sale.

    What do you want to use him for?

    For $500 you can get a much nicer, better built horse.

    The prime example of a $500 horse around here unless at auction is unpapered, untrained, old or unhealthy. I'm looking for a nice show horse for halter maybe western pleasure. My soft spot is duns and paints but I want some actually muscle too. I just really liked heis build. Aside from the bum highness.

    Here, its actually between him and a couple other boys I like, all on the same sale page. The other two are mnore recent the Elliots on his page but otherwise I like these two as well what do you think?

    He does appear to have a nice build, and although the butt high-ness does worry me, you really just never know with a horse that young.
    Although, if he is two, he looks awfully little in those pictures for a two year old. (Or maybe I am just used to my Thoroughbreds?)

    I like the first colt on that page. But for being three, he seems awfully butt-high as well.

    Joshie, what do you see is wrong with this horse for $500?
    I think it's quite a cute horse, the only concern I have is that the legs look almost too ... thin.. to support the bulk that the body has. Of course he's butt-high, but I think he'll even out. Little bit post-legged in back, little cowhocked, possibly a slight bit of a straight shoulder. But nothing jumps out at me that says "don't buy him, he's not worth $500" because I'd consider him at $500.

    Hmmm. Hopefully he'll grow a little more to even out.
    I think he's built decent IMO (besides the high butt). I also think he's worth $500.

    I don't know a lot about QHs, but I have a lot of friends who say good things about the Sonny Dee Bar line.

    The back legs and the high butt. He looks nicely muscled but I think you'd have troubles getting a saddle for him (because he's butt high). If he was a yearling, maybe....

    In IL, we were able to get a three year old nice, registered APHA boy. Previous owners purchased him as a show horse for their teen who, of course, lost interest. They are breeders so they know how to pick out a good horse.

    It's not that I think this is an awful horse, it's just that I think you can get a better horse for the same money. Do the sellers have confo pics?
