The vast majority of the winning halter horses at appy shows are non-characteristic. So his lack of spots will not hurt him at all at an appy show. And other than the most colorful class (where obviously he does not fit) they show right alongside the regular colored appys.


I am not fond of his pasterns and I agree his legs are twigs.
Yes, he is cute. But if you are planning on doing anything like jumping or such those legs would worry me.

Okay so here are the 3 other options im looking at. the paint (REALLY SWEET DISPOSITION!!!) and the dun(great mover!) are yearlings, Peponitas Starr (Starr) is the paint, and Peponitas Skipa San (Skip) is the dun.
Then the little 5 year old Appy Mare is My O Magic Maid (Mia).

These are all gonna be western pleasure/halter/showmanship horses so lemme know why i shouldnt get them!
Thanks
O and maybe say the good things too :P lol

As has been mentioned, he has leeeetle legs, but his hooves concern me more. They're very, very small, and one looks quite upright. If you do decide you like him, definitely have an impartial vet do a full check and ask his opinion. If he's around 2 or under, the downhill thing is probably just the awkward baby butt stage but if he's older you may be stuck with it. I like the angle of his hocks - much nicer than those sickle-hocked bulldogish halter horses. He's got mutton withers right now which, if he doesn't sprout, could make saddle fitting a pain.
Love his color! I think he'd make a lovely *gelding.* ;)

The first paint I really like, and he looks like a typical western pleasure, the dun....(buzzzz) that horse is really downhill!! I know it's head is down but still, the shoulders are WAY the heck lower than the buns! I don't know about the 3rd...I can't pinpoint it but there is something about it i just don't like...I really don't know what it just doesn't quite look "right" to me.

oh my gosh he is just like Hunter. How old is he? I adopted Hunter last July (he was almost 2). The first pict of him is when I got him and the second one is last week. See how much he has filled out and his legs have grown?
They can change so much. He is a cutie!

Well, for the first colt in the beginning, I agree with those who said, he will probably grow into his stick legs lol. It's kinda hard to tell what a horse will be good at when they're that young because they still have a lot of growing to do. But someone way more experienced than myself could probably tell you what they would be good at the second they're born haha.

As for the next group, I actually really liked the dun. Aside from his flaws, he looks extremely muscular and he would probably be good at halter. Even though his shoulder is WAY low, maybe he will grow into them? I don't know though, I'm no expert lol
