He looks very healthy :) I love his coloring! What breed is he?

BaileyJo 09-05-2013 11:23 PM

100% Quarter horse.

Wow. How old is he? And are you training him yourself? :)

He looks sickle hocked and his front pasterns are very upright.
I would ask to see a better picture of his front feet, they look odd as well.
He's angled away a little, so is probably downhill built as well.
Not sure if these faults are bad for WP and what not, but they could cause the horse to have some soundness issues. Especially with those front pasterns, I would be concerned.
Pretty bay color yes, but don't judge a horse for the color! I think you would benefit from looking at more horses before settling on this one.

Is it just me or does his back look roached?

Thank you. Appreciate the feedback. I agree that from this picture he doesn't look good. When I look again, I think it is a bad picture too. Looks like he is really standing under himself and front is turned towards the camera, making his entire front look wonky and his back funny.

I think I need a better picture, to be fair to the horse.

Better pictures and video of him moving. Are you hoping to do AQHA shows or just local small shows?
