Those are some SKINNY legs! Very nice color. I think he looks good. Are you going to show in Appy shows? I wonder if it is harder to compete with an Appy with no blanket or spots against those with. Or is there seperate classes like breeding stock paints?

I'm not too happy with his legs, they are not particularly sturdy. For halter and normal/light riding he should be fine, but realize that's the biggest flaw for him. He is downhill at the moment but that could be a growth spurt, and thus he may grow at least a bit out of such a steep angle. I don't know much about halter classes so that's all I can say really.

I think he would be perfect. He will grow into his legs, my horse Gunther had sticks for legs but now they are perfect. He's going to be a good looking horse.

I hope his feet grow too, teeny teeny feet. The first thing I thought of was Navicular with all that weight on those teeny feet and teeny heels.

He's a pretty one! I think he's put together quite nicely, but I see more of a rider than a halter horse. He'll still hold his own in the halter ring. How's he move? I bet those legs stretch out for a big floaty stride!

He's a nice enough lil fella, and I agree with everyone else his legs are teeny tiny. I think though he will grow into them. His pasterns are probably the biggest fault that I can pick with his legs, but overall I like him. Hopefully as he grows the testosterone will kick in and he'll solid up. But then again, he looks just as nice how he is now; dainty and pretty :) Good luck with him if you buy him.
