Conformation is quite good. Feet need work. Obviously can't speak for health, soundness, or training.

kait18 11-11-2011 10:24 PM

is the back ok?? it kind of looked like it was either swayed or high withered or maybe i am just making things up since i have be staring at him for any hour :/

bubba13 11-11-2011 10:26 PM

From that photo, I would not be concerned. All I really see are high withers.

kait18 11-11-2011 10:31 PM

ok thats good news. i am so excited :) thanks bubba

Agreed, his withers are a bit high but nothing really sticks out to me as being wrong with him.

He looks high withered but otherwise, he looks like a 3 'circle' horse conformation wise. Obviously, can't speak about anything else. Just be careful if you're taking a horse from a known Kill Buyer site.

is there anything specific i should be worried about dreamcatcher?? i have qt already arranged if i decide to get him. its a rescue kill auction. if the horses aren't sold then they are brought to the meat auction.

It's just that buying a horse in those circumstances, you can never be sure of what behavioral or medical issues may be there, hidden under the surface. Lots of people get good horses buying from these situations...others are not nearly so lucky.

The body conformation looks good to me. Lots of bone in the hocks, especially. But the face strikes me as of a horse older than ten. Just the slightly sunken look above and behind the eyes. Just an impression. Otherwise, I like his looks quite a lot.
