Possible Buy.....Opinions??

Could you guys take a look at this colt and give me your opinion? He is a 2 yr old Pintaloosa Bashkir Curly

What are you planning to do with him?
There's just something I don't like about him...his head doesn't look proportionate to his body. He looks really stocky with a short neck.
My opinion is pretty useless though. I have no idea what a pintaloosa curly is SUPPOSED to look like

I don't like him much. Sorry. His neck looks very sick and short, and tail is just khmmmm.....

Is that a guy who had some issues with his head like partial paralysis or something like that? Or I messed up you with another person...?

Well, I must say he is quite patient and obedient for a 2y/o, but that it about all the good I can say about him :(

I personally just don't like his coloring very much, but if you like it then that's not a drawback.

He doesn't tie in at the neck very well and his head is quite odd looking, but then again that may be a breed characteristic.

If you were just looking for a sweet pleasure horse I think he would be nice, but I don't know something about him just isn't right :P

I think he is a nice prospect for the cross he is. He caries himself well. I dont mind the no tail problem and he may grow a little more (those darn no hair apps! gotta love tham) I on the other hand love the coloring!! Will his color change some as he grows like a full blood App???

All in all if I was lookin at buying I would consider him! He looks sweet! I dont know how much training he has had but looks smart:)

This is a different horse than the one I asked about the other day.
I'm not really sure what a curly is SUPPOSE to look like either.....that's why I thought I'd ask for you guys opinion.
I LOVE his coloring,he may roan a bit but should stay pretty much looking the same. I'm ok with his Appy tail too, it's just something you have to accept with Appys. It's just his conformation I was wondering about.....I was also thinking his neck was a bit short and his head looks a little big.
I don't know....I guess it's his coloring and personality I love and the fact that he's a curly; he's just a bit too........clunky looking?
I would be using him for pleasure riding, cattle drives, etc. Nothing fancy, maybe a little jumping if I ever learn how!

To me, he looks a bit like... a big horse smooshed down to pony size... ha ha.

I don't love his neck, and he just seems SO thick...

Love his colors, and he seems sweet and patient.

I guess it depends on what you plan on doing with him.

My opinion of his conformation is relatively obsolete, as I don't have a clue what a Curly should look like. I know what an app or paint should like though... and that's not it. Ha ha.

Bashkir Curlys are bred to have short stockey necks, and he looks like he will be a good one:)
