That's a really good idea about having some sort of background like that, I hadn't thought of that..I think there is a better area of the property for that.
So for the next picture I will make sure my nicer camera is working properly and have him stand with a helper in a bridle with a prettier background.

Thanks

Do you think I should include this video of him lunging in his ads?
Or supply it to people who email me? Or nothing at all?

Leave it out for now. Serious buyers will want to see the video and you can always send it to them.

I love how he is pretty comfy with voice commands. The thing that I'd be weary about as a potential buyer is the fact that he should be able to track up in the trot better. He looks stiff, but perhaps others might disagree?

Okay, I'll leave it out. =)
Yeah, his trot needs a bit of work. He can give me a really, really nice trot sometimes but usually gives me this, haha..so it does need to be developed a bit.

^^Haha, the TB lazy trot! My guy does this too...usually with loooots of directional changes I can get him nice and working under himself and looking fabulous.

I think he could track up a little better, but there might be something in his confirmation making him stiff. Does he have issues in his back legs?

Nope..all of his legs are in great shape. I think he is definitely just being lazy, haha
My trainer gets him going really nicely..I'm trying to get better at getting that out of him like she does. It's definitely in there!

Okay, just completed photoshoot number three for Kainne..very exhausting day.
This is the fruit of my hours of labour..one of several hundred pictures taken today. I'm pretty happy with it..I know his legs are a bit off but I think he looks pretty nice. This was also the best background I could find, I could swear she had flowers out there somewhere but I guess I was wrong, hah

What do you all think of this one?

Much better! I like how I can see his star now too. Did you do any additional photos under saddle?

PS I am partial to a roached mane - love 'em.

Nope, not yet..but I am working something out with someone at the barn to get that done soon with actual jumping photos, which will be great!
So we're very excited about that.

And thanks about the mane! It was a bit of an accident, really..kinda happened before I planned on selling him, haha..but I like it on him

I agree that the latest photo is much better. I like that you have his tail down (but that's just personal preference on my part, since I don't show and have never been partial to braided tails). His mane looks better to me now that it's grown out just that little bit since the last photo. He looks very cute, and calm and happy.
