Well he is very pretty. I was going to guess Hungarian Warmblood next haha. What are you wanting to use him for? I didn't see your first thread.

A friend just mentioned she did not like his neck-thought it was too thin for his body? He has not been regularly ridden for the last year and he could use a little muscle. Anyone else have any thoughts?

Well, his neck ties into his shoulder beautifully and is of very proportional length which are the main two faults commonly seen in neck conformation i.e. something that is underlying and cannot be changed. Muscling will come with work.

He's worth a look and a ride IMO.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Thank you-that makes me feel a little better. I guess this guy is in the running if I can get a Vet up there to do a PPE and get me the results. I just wish he was not 3.5 hours away!

he looks a bit down hill, is there any way you can get a video of him moving

hes kind of cute but super super slow... im sure he would be able to do low level stuff but hard to really critique since he's not really moving out or anything

I agree-it is really hard to venture a guess on the video. My trainer did not think he looked bad at all, and she is really picky. I guess since collected work is often harder to teach, he already has that. I would hope he still has a second and third gear! :)

It is hard to see in the picture you posted, but if I understand correctly the "dent" in his neck could be a prophets thumb. It is a "defect" (not really) that happens when the foal is turned the wrong way in the womb and it kind of creases the muscle. I've never seen any amount of work to muscle it up work. It is just there for looks. not bad but could hurt if you ever want to be competitive in halter classes. Just a thought :) He is GORGEOUS though!!
