Please critique possible buy :)
 
This is JD. He's 6 years old, 16,3hh, and that's all I'm going to tell you :) I'd like some unbiased critiques of his movement and his conformation, please. (As far as you can tell from the pictures) I have my own opinions about him but it always helps to get a fresh look.

No critique for me, but he sure is gorgeous!!

huntseatgirl 04-29-2009 05:09 PM

Thank you, I am probably going out to see him this Sunday :) I like the looks of this boy!

He looks very nice (pretty crappy camera though, because it makes him looks very long, I have similar issues taking pics of my own horses on old camera).

He is a handsome boy! But I noticed in the first picture he was kicking up sand with one of his fores and he seems to be treading toe-heel in some of the other pictures. He may not be, but keep an eye out for that when you go and see him, as this is indicative of foot problems.
What breed is he?

Looks a bit heavy on the forehand.
In the first two jumping pictures it looks like he is dropping his right fore, in the third it looks like he is dropping his left fore.
Nothing that can't be fixed with some gymnastics.
Cute jump.
He's handsome. Gorgeous face.
I like how his ears are mostly forward in all the pictures!

Let us know how it goes.

buy him he's gorgeous

angelsgrace 04-29-2009 10:48 PM

nice mover too

@RedHawk: I see what you mean about treading toe-heel, I'll keep an eye out. As far as the kicking up dirt thing, I haven't seen any evidence of a problem in any other pictures (I've looked through a LOT more than the ones I posted here, lol). So I'm guessing he just tripped a little. He is a Thoroughbred. I don't think he looks it at all though, and the seller says he has the brain of a Warmblood.
@Solo: Yes, if I get him we are going to have to seriously work on those lazy legs of his! I agree that he looks heavy on the forehand. I'm hoping he it's just a result of his greenness and an incorrect frame, but we'll see. I LOVE his jump! I think with a little more polish it could be really nice. I like his face too :) And apparently he is a very cheerful boy in general, trails by himself, loves to work, etc.
@ angelsgrace & kitten_Val: thank you both :)

He is a handsome boy!! He does have a heavy forehand and lazy legs in the jumps, but that is an easy fix!

How much are they asking and where is he located? I would love to scoop him up if he is near me and you don't buy him!!!
