Yes, it's me AGAIN...opinions on this colt please
This is a colt that I really like, I have been staring at these pictures for two weeks now.
He is for sale at a very reputable breeding and training facility. I have rode several colts from this same place but with different bloodlines.
He is a 2012 colt
I guess I just wanted some reassurance before I make the 7hr drive.
What do you think?
Things I like about him are his short back, strong coupling, general croup and hip shape and I think he has a decent set to his hocks (though none of the photos shows his hind end all that well). And he is a pretty color.
Things I am not as keen on are slightly long pasterns, skinny neck, which appears slightly ewed and a touch short, plain head, possibly clubby left front foot and possible swelling in that same knee (in looks enlarged in both photos to me). He might be a touch back at the knee too.
Overall I think he is worth a closer look, but would make sure that left knee/front leg is not going to be an issue. IMO his heels are too tall all around too.
Agree with tryst. Close look at the LF. His face looks mustang/ Spanish.
I do like his croup and hip, nice. Hmmm I'm not sure if that neck is for me (but I'm finicky about necks) and the pasterns look a little longish and upright.
Thanks DHW and Muppet!
I will see if they wouldn't mind taking a couple pics for me before I go down there.
I actually like his head for the reasons DHW said..LOL. If he was a filly I might be turned off by it though.
I like his engine! Nice butt. His back is nice and short and his neck seems to tie in to his chest nicely and a bit low to his withers. He has a pencil neck.. but he is what.. a coming 2 year old? that may change.
He has a slightly steep shoulder but a nice short barrel.
He seems to be quite light in bone. As he matures and gets heavier you may wish he had more bone.
I like him. Neck seems a little too fine somehow, but he will probably grow out. Either way I wouldn’t knock him back for the right price, looks to me like he will shape up to be a good solid horse.
I appreciate the input everyone but it looks like I have to spend my "new colt fund" on fixing my truck. I managed to do almost $5000 worth of body damage today *sigh*
$3000 for the side panel of the fender and $1800 for a tailgate.
O.o poor truck. What happened? Lol
