He is gorgeous. Almost any horse can do lower level reining and cow work. When it comes to cutting and such, bloodlines play a lot into it but he appears to have good solid confo that would be suitable for a pretty darn good reining horse. You have done wonderfully with him, he has filled out tons and looks great.
Thanks smrobs ... he is getting fed to his hearts content and ridden so it is turning into muscle ... he goes really well 85% of the time on a loose rein and we have learned to chase steers at the ropings we go to ... he also has a great stop on him. I am working on simple lead changes right now so that we can master some flying lead changes soon and we do some slow spins (we are much better to the right but can do them both ways.. over time it will get better)... ill keep you all posted!
I have been here a month or so and it is nice to see something other than jumping and/or english. Like the others said he looks so much better. Very pretty and healthy looking. You did a good job of it! I like the blue booties too. :)
