    Talking possible buy. critiques pleases!!

    Okay, so. I know this horse personally. I spent all of last summer working with him and completely fell in love. He's been for sale for a while now and I've been debating on and off whether to go for it considering I'm the littlest bit too big for him. Not enough for it to be a problem (he's 13.3hh. I'm 5'5", 118lbs.), but enough for us to look a little bit awkward. That being said I'd really like to know what you guys think of him so here's his ad and an enlarged pic from the ad. I know the pictures aren't too great for confo critiques, but please give me any critiques you can, confo or other.

    He looks a bit downhill to me.

    I think he's very pretty. I doubt at 5'5" you'd be too tall for him -- or at 118 lbs too heavy. I don't know how old you are -- are you done growing yourself yet?

    I'm 15, but yes, I'm done growing. And before anyone gets into debates of, "well the doctor doesn't know for sure...", i've had various x-rays done (for injuries and such, lol) and my growth plates are CLOSED. Haha. So I will remain this height foreveerrr O.o

    Well if you're SURE you're done growing... :) I doubt it though.. regardless of docs, bones and growth plates are only part of the equation. Why in the world would you stop growing at 15?? Doesn't make sense. Anyway, you're not going to be 5'10" so I think you'd be fine with this pony.

    I generally consider myself conformationally stupid and the pics are not great to see confo on, in my VERY humble opinion. I do see where WTWB is getting the downhill part from, but I don't know if that matters... I don't know what that will do in a competition environment. Again, IMVHO, his neck seems heavy, but don't take my word on it. Hopefully someone else will give you better input.
