    Well, I can tell you he's Egyptian with a slight leaning toward the more classical lines (over modern lines). He's a flat mover with the crooked tail carriage (like my SEA) that you see often in Egyptian breds. They aren't typically very athletic and don't do as well as other types in the arena, though mine certainly has plenty of go in him. He'll always be slight build. I'd say overall he's your typical 3 year old Egyptian Arabian. I do have a hard time seeing him as actually being 800#, though. From his shape, height, and age, I'd say he's more likely in the 650-700# range. He won't really start filling out for a couple more years.

    I don't mind if he's slow to fill out. I am curious if anybody has had a horse grey out after 3? I've been trying to work with the owner, but have been playing phone tag.

    He's a cutie!

    Hopefully you are willing to take it slow, giving him a good foundation as far as training, and let him develop physically before you get to the going fast part.

    And at 3 years, I'd question the 15 hands part. But then I always question the height until I have a chance to stand next to them. See that mare in my avatar? Does that look 15.2? I'm 5'3" . That mare turned out to be 14.3...a fact for which I was thankful!!!

    Yes of course, in fact I rarely even sit/ride the horse until I KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt he has respect for me. Then it's more desensitizing with the saddle/stirrups and riding exercises in the pasture/round pen with slow long rides on our gravel road and fields.
    If I don't mess with the horse it's really hard to get to know his temperament and weaknesses, which a person should be aware of.

    I guess I have a healthy respectful fear of getting bucked off or ran away with. I used ride a Shetland pony and needless to say that's where I learned the respect and knowledge to do groundwork before riding. I've been bucked off, trampled on, and ran away with more times then I can count. But it's a lesson I'm glad I learned from a pony vs. a horse... Shorter distance to fall! :)

    I like greenbroke horses as I like training them...That's half the fun!

    I don't have an opinion on the horse in the ad, but I have heard of horses graying out later than 3. Sometimes much later than 3.

    Hmm...Thank-you Zexious. It wouldn't bother me either way, but it would be interesting to watch. The only reason I could think of that he'd grey out is ALL his sire's sires are grey.

    How far back grey goes wont indicate that. Grey is dominant so if the horse inherits the gene from one parent they will grey out. It doesn't matter how many of their ancestors are grey - that wont change his odds.

    If the color is a concern, see if be is registered and what they wrote him down as or have him color tested. Is grey a concern for you?

    ^^Nope, and at the moment I'm not sure I'll be getting him. Things aren't working out as of yet.
