    oh gosh i just fell in love

    Sooo I really just felt my heart die.. I have always had a soft spot for palominos and am currently just snooping around possibly looking for a horse. Well I was on craigslist and came across a listing for a palomino gelding for 750 possible trade. Well I just fell in love and I really wish I could just go and get him but I don't think I will :[ but heres the guy a fell for lol he's about 3 hours from where I live.
    P.s. If you see anything that would hinder him from making a good gymkhana horse please let me know..in case my mom changes her mind hah

    His hind legs are very posty and there is something about his back that really bothers me. It appears that he may have the beginning of a sway back.

    Smrobs-thank you, how would that affect him later on though?

    The goldens are addicting. I have never been one for coloured horses yet some how ended up with a Palomino of my own and now I have a soft spot for them. If you're interested I'd say go out and see him if you can. No harm in looking... :p

    With his whole hind end the shape that it is, it would make it very hard for him to collect and drive off his hind end. The sway in his back makes this harder too. If I had to guess, I would say that likely, he has spent most of his life travelling around hollowed out with his head up in the air. If you are looking at him for gaming, I don't really see him having much speed (though he may suprise me). I would be more concerned with arthritis in his spine and back end. Possibly even the beginnings of lordosis.

    There's not a whole lot I like about that horse.

    I was expecting some gorgeous, fabulously built animal, and all I see is a 'meh' horse that's a pretty color.

    His back looks funky, his pasterns are too upright, his feet look small, his neck is rather thick and short, and I'm not crazy about the angle of his shoulder.

    People need to learn to be able to look past color and see conformation.

    Why do they say "Downsizing and don't need him anymore"...but are willing to trade for another horse?

    "Willing to trade only if horse you have is much better and has more potential than the one we have, that way we can turn around and make a buck off him."
