    Buster pictures

    Here are some pictures of Buster who I hope to show. I am also going to apologize for his dirty condition. It's that time of year.

    Any glaring faults the judges would note? He is about 15 to 15.1 and yes needs his hooves done. Farrier coming at the end of the week.

    (Note: In the last photo hubby was rubbing his neck so the head went up.

    He looks like he's built pretty solid, maybe a little cow-hocked in the back (that's pretty common). I bet he'll be pretty once he's cleaned up !!

    Thanks, yes I noticed the cow hock, doesn't seem to bother his movement at all luckily. He does have a nice sturdy build, I hope to get some better pics when it dries up here a bit. Now they are calling for snow showers on Sunday, yuck, just to make it messier.

    Well everyone, no showing for me. The hubby started working with the boy today and everything went south fast. We were sold a bill of goods. This boy has more problems than I can name and trying to take him to a show would require an extreme amount of training. He is a wash after rearing and bucking until he dismounted his rider. I can understand green broke, but this guy is worse than unbroken. The unfortunate part is that if my husband was about 20 years younger he could have climbed back on, but all he could do was gently walk back to the house. This totally irks me when people sell an animal like that off to people with the chance of injury.

    I took said horse to the pen and we lunged for about an hour, I don't have the time or energy to deal with this.

    That's too bad! Perhaps you might find someone a little more spry that could help you with him. He's a cute horse. You might want to keep trying. Good luck!

    Thanks but we gave him to a girl who trains. He will be better off with someone used to his type since he wasn't gelded til he was 8.

    He really wasn't built for what I wanted to do anyway. He will be better off with someone who knows better how to handle a horse that explodes when he doesn't get his way.
