    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 don't 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 don't 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.

    If you wanna do some cattle work and trail riding with him I think he would be great! I don't know anything about jumping...so I can't help you there

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