    Potential buy, please critique *Image Heavy*

    I cannot get this horse out of my head. This is the only photo I have of him ATM and the video was taken on my mom's camera phone, so sorry for the quality.

    Name: Surprise George aka George
    Age: 7 years
    Breed: American Quarter Horse
    Registered: Yes
    Height: 16.2 hands
    Discipline: Trail horse

    I know the picture isn't the best, but tell me what you can from it.

    And here's a video of me trotting around on him.

    I am going up there tomorrow, so i'll take conformation pictures and everything and more pictures of him undersaddle.

    Yeah, you really can't tell anything from that picture;; the saddle hides the back, the bars/shade [om my computer anyway] hide the shoulder angle and you can't see his legs so once you get good confo pics we'll all be able to tell you how he is.

    I'm not going to bother with the video because I can't do mouvement, haha

    I figured the picture wasn't good., actually I knew it wasn't good, but thought i'd put it out there.

    I'll get better pics tomorrow.

    Well the pic isn't very good unfortunately. Looks like he has a nice shoulder to him tho. Is he registered?

    As for the video, I don't even know what to tell you. It was to blurry to see enough worth saying.

    Are you getting another opportunity to see him? Wouldn't mind seeing more pics :)

    The video was on my mom's camera phone, and I know the video is bad, but I thought someone might be able to see something.

    Yes, he is registered.

    I took more pictures today, but didn't get any conformation shots.
    I'll upload them when I put them on my computer

    I'll need more confo pics to critique, but he is a cutie. His trot doesn't look too bad, either. ;)

    Well I don't have confo pics, but I do have a lot of pics of him moving, both without me and then with me.

    It's still up in the air if i'm going to get him (depending on how much she'll take Vega for) But i'm hoping i'll get him.

    (my favorite)

    Cut off his head :(

    Think I could turn him English?

    I'm 5'10... he's 16.2

    Good? Bad? Should I pass?

    The swelling his in right hock has gone down A LOT! So i'm very happy about that, but i'm still going to want to get that x-rayed if I do wind up getting him.

    That's not the saddle you would use on him is it? Because it looks like it doesn't fit very good.

    He's a nice looking horse but without pictures of him standing square from the side front and back, not much you can really tell about his legs, topline, neck, hindquarters.

    Sure is a flashy looking horse though. I can see why he's sticking in your mind!

    I'm an english girl, so that is not the saddle i'd be using with him.
    That saddle was really uncomfortable too. Felt like I was sitting on cement
    And I was out of my element trying to ride English with a western saddle and bridle and reins.

    My fingers are crossed that things will work out.

    He's cute, that's for sure! One thing that sticks out to me is his front end; he has a fairly straight shoulder and his neck ties in low.
    Other than that, I can't find anything wrong, but mind you these aren't the best critique pictures.
    Anyways, you look quite comfortable on him, if that makes any difference?
    The one big thing I'm wondering is why is he in a hackamore?
    Oh, and ohmygoodness you're a skinny minnie!
