I'm not impressed, either. Since we're playing along, here, his back is little bit weak, he's a bit camped out, and slightly ewe necked.
And this was in 2009, when the picture was taken. When I sell a horse, I put a recent picture up.

Okay, so why exactly do you need more...especially one that is such a spectacularly mediocre horse. Definitely not stud material.

That's why I want him because I would NEVER bring a mare to my house with them. Also I want a riding horse I can trust with my 6 year old niece.

Wow, what the **** are you thinking? First off, a 6 year old has no business riding a stud. Not only is it forbidden by most arenas and shows, but horses are inherently unpredictable...studs even moreso. Even the best behaved stud will need an occasional "reminder" to obey his training. A child wouldn't have the knowledge or ability to give them that reminder, which could cause a huge catastrophe.

Also just for me. If we get him we might geld him. We most certainly will if he's to hot.

Um, gelding a horse doesn't change it's base temperament.

I went to the sellers house and met him. He was very kind and wanted to please me. Whenever I asked something he would do it without hesitation. Even when I rode him. I just wanted to know his bloodlines. I only got a few good answers. This happened last time too. I don't think I will be hearing from you guys for a long long time.

Typical. Post a thread and then get all huffy when you don't get the answers that you want. Go ahead and "take your toys and go home".

Also, regarding the price mentioned in the ad. If it is, in fact, $12 then that horse has absolutely no reason to be a stud and should have been gelded as a weanling, before he developed any studdy habits.

If it is $12K, then you would be grossly overpaying for a horse that is so....mediocre.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I can 'like' from my phone. If you go to 'full site' you'll get the whole shebang.

I would put the same amount of effort looking into this stallion as the seller's did when they put up the ad........NONE. If you're so lazy you can't even put up pics on a site that allows free pic ads, you're not wanting to sell the horse very bad.

What the world does not need is another colly wobbled mess with more Magnum Psyche in its bloodlines breeding and making more colly wobbled messes. Blech!
