I know it's hard to judge this young that's why I also added his sire and dam and pedigree, it at least gives people an idea of what he came from.
Poco, You have enough horse sense to know a good horse from a bad one and not end up with something worthless. I would trust your own judgement over what people on a forum say that you don't even know who they are. They never agree anyway on a horse and always find something wrong.
It wouldn't even cross my mind to post and ask about a prospect. I have seen many a good horse that maybe wouldn't look the best in a photo and who cares if it looks good if it has a bad personality.

Aww I love you! lol.
The only reason I ask is I tend to go with my heart and not use my head sometimes. I know I want a foal or something young but I didn't want to get something just to get it and have it be nothing worthwhile? The other ones I posted were more of a "well it's cheap and I could make it into something I guess". This fella is more like "wow, he really caught my eye and I could make him into something big".

T minus 7 hours until I'm on the road to see this guy! In desperate need of sleep but too excited. Camera has a fresh sim card and battery will be fully charged by morning!

Good luck and I am eagerly anticipating adorable foal pics!! Have fun, be careful, and most importantly get you some sleep!!

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift-that's why it's called the present.

Went and saw him and put the deposit down today. Will finish paying when I pick him up in October for weaning! Very excited. They were going to name him FVF Whispering Dreams but I talked to the farm and asked to change the name since registration is still in process with AHA so he will be (hopefully) name FVF Buzzes Like Neon. The photos do NOT do him justice, it was sooo sunny out!

Squee, cuteness!!!! Congratulations!

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
