Purebred Arabian yearling, freshly gelded.

One word...


I honestly can't find anything I don't like about him.

Poco1220 04-26-2012 08:59 PM

Bump. Anyone else?

TimWhit91 04-26-2012 09:03 PM

He is so cute, love his markings. Makes me want another arabian

Nice looking colt! I like him a lot and he is very balanced and together for a yearling. Not much not to like here :)

Poco1220 04-26-2012 09:56 PM

Thanks you guys. I got a great deal on him so I keep thinking there must be something I'm missing lol. I guess sometimes you just get lucky!

Ummm...His mane needs to lay down... ;-)

Honestly, I LOVE him. I see nothing bad. LoL. (Not even his mane)

I really really like him. I think he has "it", you know?

If I were to be really picky (which is difficult since he's so young and Arabs always look awkward until they're a certain age) I'd wish his shoulder were a bit more sloped and I'd wish that his croup-point of buttock angle was longer. However, those angles will probably be totally better in a few months. And those angles are pretty traditional "problem" areas for more Egyptian-bred Arabians (I think maybe those things are sought after in halter, or something?) so he's definitely not alone, even if they don't change as he matures.

He's super cute. I especially really like his neck, head, and legs.

Thank you to all of you! Like I've said before, I normally post possible purchases on here and they get eaten up alive. I saw this guy and kinda ran for him in fear he'd get picked up by someone else! lol. Glad I made a good choice!
