    Does this horse look 2?

    Horse - $500 (Bakersfield)

    I was browsing craigslist and saw this horse. Is it me or does this horse look a lot younger than 2? I'm just curious is all.

    She might just be a young 2 but either way she doesn't look ready to be ridden. Her poor back and legs :(

    Agree with countrylove, she could just be a young 2, some horses mature slower than others. With Dora, even at 5 she wasn't ready to be ridden, she was just so dainty. I'm hoping that they aren't riding her and maybe just have her saddle broke...that thing swallows her up!

    Looks like a yearling but some mature slower.
    I still get ID'ed and I'm WAY past carding age!!

    Are you in that general area? I am asking because I am wondering if the background looks right for this time of year in that area or if it is an indicator that the picture was not taken that recently (which could be contributing to the seeming mismatch of age and appearance).

    When I worked at a cutting barn, the trainers brother brought in a 3 year old that looked this young in for training.. Just might be a slow maturer..

    Either way its painful to think about a horse this young/immature being ridden:/

    LOL! That's So. Cal. Just about any time of the year!

    I agree, she looks like a long yearling, can't imagine someone is riding her.

    That's a poor photo. It is possible that the saddle is quite large, making the horse appear smaller but then the pad also looks big, which it shouldnt if she is indeed as big as they say she is. More photos would be nice but even if she is 2 she does not, to me, look 14.3 hands high. Just going off of the fence, which is probably 5-feet, that horse is probably not that tall and definitely not a blue roan.
    But to be really sure about all of these things you would have to see her in person of course

    I'm just wondering where the heck the blue roan is hiding.
