    Question Possible Horse, Critique please?

    This is 'Deposition'. He is a purebred QH gelding, by Statement (imp) from Multi National champion, Delightfully Noble.

    That's the only photo, I've got at the moment. Owner is sending me more photos, and videos. I'm going to see him on Sunday. According to the owner, 'he will make an awesome lunge line and ridden prospect.' I intend on doing his halter classes, and Mum will be doing his lunge-line classes and we'll share the led trail classes.
    When he's older, I want him to be a WP, trail, hunter horse.
    My instructors know the lady who owns him. She breeds QH's, and she is apparently very fussy with her horses, and makes sure they are perfect and well-behaved. They have also seen him, and say he has really pretty gaits.
    Lets pick him apart shall we? Any opinions (positive or negative) will be greatly appreciated.

    **Note, I'll post more pictures and vidoes as I get them.

    Babies can be so hard to judge because they change so much also its hard to critque because we don't have proper photos! Post more when you get them! He seems to be a very cute little guy! Are you and your mom wanting to raise and train a baby? I guess the asking price would be another factor! Right now I wouldnt pay more than $1,000 for a baby if that with so many horses for sale! But that's just me! Good luck!

    Yes, we wanna raise and train him. He's advertised for $2,200, but we're getting him for $2000.
    In Australia, $2000 is actually really good for a registered QH with good bloodlines. Most yearlings that are registered and have good bloodlines in my area, are about $3000 to $10,000.
    I will definitely post more photos as I get them.

    Considering that's approximately $1000 US anyway I think it's not a bad deal. He looks great but it's not a good confo shot. Looking forward to seeing more pics!

    Aww come on the Aussie dollar is doing a little better than that, more like US$1700 for AU$2000.

    So if he is as good as you say, he sounds like a bargain :)

    I've got good news, and bad news.
    The good news is I went and saw him on Sunday. He is still a baby ( a big tall baby ), and he was handled as a foal and then just turned out to be a horse. He was a bit nervous to be handled by me, because I was a stranger but he wasn't naughty. He aimed to please. His face was just too cute. He has an almost perfect star and a snip that goes over one nostril. His trot was awesome. If I could just slow it down, it'd be a perfect jog. From what I saw of his canter, it was nice. Not exceptional but it was good.
    The bad news is I cannot find my camera cord anywhere. I've been frantically searching for it. I've been through all of the office boxs, I've crawled underneath the desk and now I smell like dust. I've looked in my room, my brother's room and my parents room. I have no idea where it is. If I don't find it soon, I'll explode. Any ideas on where to search for it? I really want your opinions but I can't get them unless I find this cord.
    And the extra good news is everyone in my family fell in love with him. I think I was the only one with common sense who actually looked over him thoroughly. He doesn't seem to have a mean streak but he's still a baby so I expect a bit of misbehaviour when he changes homes. We're getting him. YAY. Maverick is my baby boy. We're moving houses, so we need to find agistment but once we find it, Maverick is mine.
    Anyways, I better start searching for that cord.

    I've got a stack more videos but Youtube was being an a** and wouldn't upload them. :( Please take into account that everything here was on a tiny slope. Even the flattest ground had slope.
    So opinions?

    First, I LOVE that round pen! LOL need one like that! Second, is that girl really short or is that a huge yearling? Even if the person walking him is say, 5'2 he's pretty big already! Third, the person walking him looked WAY too nervous. I know you said he wasn't handled much, but to show him how to be led, you need to be deliberate and confidant in what you're asking...from day one, in my opinion.

    Hard to really critique him at this age since everything is out of whack for him! But he looks fairly solid with nice legs, seems willing and eager to please for how little work is on him, and a very nice head! Congrats on your new baby, be sure to post updates!
