Going to steal this one from my mom..

.. as soon as I get my own pasture and don't have to board any more.

For some reason I'm just in love with this little horse. He's around 14hh, and mom just got him this past weekend. For some reason he just screams "English" to me, and I want to learn how to ride English since I've grown up with Western. Here are the pictures of him. I know he's underweight, like I said she just got him this weekend.

And here's the video of him trotting-- please don't critique me. I have no idea what I'm doing. I have no idea how to embed videos on here, so if someone wants to do that, that'd be great :oops::lol:

Cute face. He looks a smidge thin to me, and there is something about his right front foot that bugs me a little. I'm not really good at confo stuff yet, but I'm learning.

Sure he could go english or western, he looks like a kind little guy. He needs more weight, he looks in first stage emaciation.

His right heel looks very short to me, though it may be the position in the gross, and his toes look a bit long. He'll look much better with his toesies done and groceries.:D

He's a cute mover and I can definitely see him going english.

I really like him. With groceries and muscling, he's going to be lovely!

Cool! Glad you guys like him. I can't wait for him to get some more weight on him, and to get a better farrier to his feet-- the one my mom uses doesn't tolerate horses (or ponies) that won't stand still, so he gave up and said "I ain't doing nothin till you get him trained. He ain't never had his back feet picked up." But after an hour or so of working he was okay... I think he's just been allowed to get away with too much at his old owner's.

I quite like him. He has a kind look to him. Some groceries, probably worming, foot work and building up, and I think he'll be a really handsome little fellow. Now, do we help name him?
