I think he has an adorable face and kind eye. I like the little snip on his nose. He looks friendly and you're going to have loads of fun together!

A video I took today of him trotting and loping. Completely honest opinions please, I would really appreciate it! Like I said before he's really out of shape. Lol


Also meant to add the round pen is kinda an oval shape right now lol. It needs to be adjusted.

I think he moved nicely for being out of shape and was very honest about it. Also, I loved how he walked right up to you when finished.....he's very sweet! He picked up the correct lead right away and he held his head in a pretty decent position....not too high.

Thank you so much for the response! I honestly have no idea what I'm looking for lol. How do you mean he was honest about it?

He is very sweet. :) he is very curious and wants to please as long as you know how to ask him, if that makes sense. He'll take advantage of someone if he thinks he can get away with it.

What I mean is that he didnt protest or freak out or try not to do it. He did what you wanted. If anything, he might be a little lazy but that's because he's been a couch potato for a while. He's choosing to take the "path of least resistance" whenever he can. Better that than a crazy horse. I really like him.

Yeah that's him! He'll constantly look toward me like 'can I stop now? No...? Oh alright, but only because you asked' He would much rather just follow you around and see what you're up to.

I thought he looked really good~he did what you asked & you'll be a lot safer than if he was a "powder keg" type horse. He's at a pretty good weight, but does need his feet done-if you can stay barefoot-that will save you a ton of money. Good luck w/him. If you are paying CASH-try to negotiate, so you can buy some "new" stuff for him-that is always fun to shop for the new horse in your life.
