Yeah he doesn't look fabulous in the one picture, but he'd also been out of any real work for about 6 months in the picture. One thing I have learned so far horse shopping is you can't tell enough from a picture, a lot horses just don't look the same in person as they do in photos. So I'm going to see them both in person before making any judgments.

Absolutely Someone posted a pic of a mare she saw today, I was worried she may have cow hocks, turns out her hocks are fine, but her pasterns are very long.

What nothing can tell you until you go and meet them is how they make you feel. The smile my friend had while riding that mare tells me an awful lot!

Can't wait to see the next contenders.

WEll, I wouldn't count anything out for sure. Who knows if he will sell for what they want for him........just saying. She may become negotiable when she sits with him a while....

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Really nice and solid build on that QH. Love that!
However, the Perch/Paint has some really nice, long legs and is very flashy!

Let us know how they both go!

Just got home from trying out the chestnut QH! I *tentatively* liked him a lot! I will not fall in love until my trainer checks him out and likes him and he passes a vet check! He tested me a little, threw in a couple half hearted mini bucks when I put my leg on and asked him to work! But once he knew I meant business he was happy to work. I w/t/c him and took him over a small rail which he didnt even bat an eye at. He is really out of shape ATM and only gets worked every 2-3 weeks or so. But over the summer he was do courses and jumping out in the field. His owner showed me a couple videos of him jumping 2'6 really nice and calm. Next step is my trainer is hopefully going to try him out on Monday!!

This times a couple billion...

I went to Missouri (I live in Virginia) to see Fiona and ended up buying her, I could not be happier. She's a WIP, but now I get to learn how to properly use my legs and seat versus just my hands as I was taught from an early age and continue her progress/training.

Keep us posted =]
