    Should I adopt this horse?

    Adoption

    His name is Midas. He is I think 9th or 10th from the bottom.

    Wow, they have some really lovely horses, it amazes me how such nice horses end up sometimes. If you have the time for him I think he is really nice

    He looks really nice. Make a good project I think he would be worth it.

    I'm definitely not a conformation expert, but something strikes me off in his back end / stifle area. Anyone else?

    Midas is a beautiful horse. At that, his back end looks fine to me. O_o Comparing it to the other horses on the page.. Looks the same to me. But would definitely be a great horse, if he is really that responsive and loving of his work! = ) As long as you feel like you can spend hours upon hours with him when you first meet him, it's all good.

    His legs make me nervous. It looks like he has little/no heel and that is causing too much slope in his pasterns which can put a lot of strain on those tendons. He also looks camped out in the back and seems to have a very weak loin/croup connection. Guess it depends on what you would want to be doing with him but I don't think he would hold up well under a heavy work load.

    I definitely don't see that he is camped out.

    I just loved IMACUTIE.

    I agree with mama, his back end looks somewhat funny. And he looks little downhill on pic (may be just saddle/ground combo). But
    he is very cute. I'd give him a trial ride.

    Just looked again and it must have been a long day yesterday because he isn't. Sorry!
