Kayla! What a beautiful horse!! The only thing I see is he looka a bit straight id the shoulder, but gosh, he is so glaringly gorgeous, I looked at the photos 10 times before I saw it!

Can we see him move, please? Just because he is so pretty!

He is a looker more than you give him credit for!

He is a bit straight in the shoulder, and this may be the shadows in the photo but he looks to be a tad over at the knee and possibly cow hocked.

Cute though, and he looks healthy

O.O I want. He's nice and compact, though his legs are possibly a little unsubstantial for his body.Lovely big butt, possibly a tad uphill?

For some reason, he reminds me of a toy/cartoon horse. I think it could be the lack of 'sharp' lines in his face. So adorable.

Haha, he acts like it too Tracer :) he's such a clown. here are some photo's of him moving. mostly of him trotting, that seems to be his favourite pace :) he has lovely smooth gaits. if he starts to trot without me telling him to when i'm riding, i hardly notice it most of the time. when i'm in a saddle at least. bareback it's always bumpy, no matter how smooth the gait! :D he's a bit skinnier in these action photos.

i also took this one of him standing today. i know the fence is in the way, but he is standing up nicer than in the others.

This is a very gorgeous horse! The thing I noticed about him is that he has a weak hind end with not much angulation to his hocks. In the pics with him moving, I see him not using his rear end much and trailing out behind, when moving freely & under saddle. More working up hills will help him out in his weak area. This horse looks very well taken care of.
