6 year old gelding critique
This is a 6 year old brown gelding I recently acquired from my boss. Not the best pictures, he just can not stand still and I was alone. Any ideas on what breed/s he is?
I am working on muscling him up. I have been riding him for about a week and a half, he was started last year by someone, they through a saddle on him, saw him buck, then stopped showing up. But he is a very sweet boy and has never bucked with me. He has a very hard to ride trot, but I am used to a shorter stride paint...I'm sure I will get used to it. He does have a very nice rocking horse lope though. He's just a touch lazy, which I am okay with
Toed out, stands under himself, pigeon chested, SUPER high wither, and a bit tied in at the knee I think. Nice short back though, and a cute color. Good pasterns. Looks like he needs muscling but I'm sure he'd be a lovely trail or pleasure horse.
I'm going to have to go with TB simply because of those rediculous withers. Perhaps appendix.
I was going to say Appendix as well. He sure is a handsome beast! :)
I think he is handsome too. I was thinking appendix, but wasn't sure. Doesn't really matter, just nice to know. I love him no matter what he is. His name is Wilbur
For sure there's TB in there, and he's bay not brown. Nice looking boy, great hocks!!
I, too , see thoroughbred. I would guess full. He has nothing qh in looks about him, to me.
Actually he is brown, due to the bleaching in the flanks, behind the shoulder, and the lightness of his muzzle. Browns can have black points.
As for breed, he's definitely got TB in him! Pretty boy for sure

He has high, high withers, he is toed out, and... personally, I like his general build. Looks pretty sturdy. He also looks TB to me :D
