Possible buy critque.

This gorgeous boy is in the sales for this week for Camelot Horse Weekly, and he just caught my eye. I'd like to know everyone's thoughts and opinions on him. If we're able to get a transport here, we might take him.

Unfortunately these two are the only pictures they have up of him. So I know they're not the best.

He looks like a very nice horse. A little long in the back, a little small in the cannons, but a very nice horse overall.

His back is long & he needs alot more muscle in his hindquarters. He's also a bit high in the withers but overall he looks like a nice horse.

As said, long in the back.

His back legs are also far behind him. Looks like he has a hunter bump too.
Nice looking horse though!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Thank you so far for the critiques!

I forgot to also add that I would probably use him for trail riding, barrels possibly, but trail riding more than anything.

I agree with what others have said, and I'd also like to add that his feet and legs look very fine-boned and small compared to his overall size. I like a horse with a bit more sturdiness through the legs.

Here is another picture of him.



Also, I've been eying up another one of their geldings and would love opinions on him as well.

I very much prefer the build of the perlino, though his neck and head are not as pretty. Can't see either horse's feet very well. Both have rather light canon bones and smallish feet. But the hind quarters of the perlino is much better.

Both are extremely long-bodied - not good for any events requiring collection (barrels definitely included!)
I really dislike the second horse's (perlino? Cremello?) front legs. Extremely fine boned and back at the knee. Very fine bone on him.
