Taking a hard look at this guy - Arab Folk and QH/Paint Folk come hither please!
Okies ... found a little guy I'm going to take a serious look at this weekend. He's a little younger than I wanted, but I do have someone who can break him to saddle and get his basics down. I *could* do it myself, but since I'm 50, I obviously would prefer not to! LOL
Here's his ad with a good bit of photos. Not great confirmation shots but if someone spots something please do speak up.
Super Cute Reg 1/2 Arab/Paint
Here's his pedigree.
Sharp Dress Man Part-bred Arab
Nothing really impressive *coughs* no pun intended. I was able to trace part of his Arab side to some Crabbet and polish lines. A BIG plus for me is he has Fadheilan who is the sire of my all time favorite stud Fadjur. Of course it means virtually zero as he's so far back but it did give me a SQUEEEEEE for a moment ;) I don't intend on stepping foot into a show ring ever again so really pedigree is for my own amusement.
He has not been tested for HYPP which has already been addressed with the seller. I will not purchase a positive horse so that must be done if I decide to go further with this.
Upside - He appears at this point to take on the best of both worlds as far as Arab/QH-Paint cross which I like very much.
Downside - *Could* be HYPP positive which would make this whole post pointless. Younger than I wanted which isn't really a downside just not *ideal*.
He's a good looking young horse. Price is nice. Can't hurt to look, right?
Nice nice nice.....pedigree is nice too....you're lucky you're so far from me....he'd be in my barn by now :-)
I'd have him tested, and a n/h wouldn't concern me too much, it can be managed.....but it needs to be known.
From his Arab side, I'd dare to say he could be trained at home.....should be a real sweetie.
So, we'll see. The price is more than fair as long as there's no glaring conformation issues when I actually get to put hands on him. I'll just have to buck up and move on if his testing comes out poorly. Which by the looks of it, would be a very sad thing.
And no no no no ... it's taken me like near a year to find this little guy LOL no stealing him from me yet!:wink:
Nothing to worry...hubby would institutionalize me if I wanted a horse so far away;-)
I like! Keep us posted!
AWWW!!! He's adorable!! Wish I could have another haha, but I don't see anything wrong with him conformation wise based on the pics!! Are you gonna ride him english or western? Or both!!:) Tell us how it all works out!!
I'll keep ya'll posted and thanks so much for the replies.
Just as an fyi I had a horse bought out from under me by a forum member after I posted a critique thread.
I no longer post ad links.
