Looks like a tank of a HUS horse. Bloodlines?

That horse is truly drool worthy! Absolutely gorgeous, looks like he's built just a tad down hill though, which may or may not be an issue for you. What are your plans for the horse?

A picture without a saddle would be better!

His hind legs are a bit posty and his pasterns are very upright. In addition he is lacking bone in his legs, particularly given the size of his body. Not a horse I would choose for jumping or any kind of high impact endeavour. He looks to be built rather downhill, although it is hard to tell if the picture is warped from taking a screen shot or not.

He is a pretty boy for sure, could be fun for some low level stuff! I wouldn't pay big bucks for him though. JMO.

He's very pretty. The only thing I really see conformation wise is he has pretty steep angles and like someone else said, he's a little posty. What do you want to use him for? I bet he would be gret for HUS and equitation... don't know much about jumping.

I want to use him mainly as a HUS but also a little jumping nothing huge just fun shows.

his asking price is 10k i think its a bit much for him since hes not fully trained and only 30 days i see the same confirmation issues you guys see.

Oh yikes, I'd pass with that price and only 30 days training. You can easily find something finished with show points/experience for that. How old is he?

annabana27 05-25-2012 10:59 AM

He's 3

Definitely not worth $10,000. He's an okay-looking guy, but not exceptional.

I'd say pass this one up, for sure.
