Criticizes this Paint gelding.
4 Attachment(s)
This here is Apache, He'a a paint, gelding, age is unknown. He just a trail riding horse for my step dad.

I would like to know his color. If anyone could tell me.(As is he tobiano or tovero or whatever he is) also would he be good at barrel racing. Or any other discipline instead of just a trail horse.

This is the first ever criticizes i will have done on this horse so just tear him to pieces.

These picture are from today, 4/4/11. Sorry if there no good. Please tell me if these pictures aren't criticizable. (LOL, that's not a word but....)

i'll try to get better pictures tomorrow.

He is a tobiano. With muscling he could do barrels. He can go in any direction you want to really. He looks very calm and sweet.

He's very sweet. He's very shy to. his first owner. (Not the people we got him off but the people before them) Beat him in his ears so he's kinda head shy. but he's getting better. He has threw me before but he is actually a really good horse.

Also thanks for telling me what he was. Tobiano. I was thinking that but wasn't sure. He has a lovely heart shape on his side. (Almost.)

Anyone want to criticizes him. Does he have a ewe neck, is his shoulders to straight, ect. Come on. There has to be some one that can tell me his conformation.

It is kind of hard to tell in these pictures. He isn't standing very square. The one thing I can see is that he is lean in the chest. His butt personally to me could be a little bigger.

HopalongCassidy 04-05-2011 09:19 AM

I'll get more pictures. He's very built. In these pictures i guess you can't tell.

equus717 04-05-2011 09:24 AM

It is hard to tell. He looks good though over all. What are your plans for him? How old is he?

HopalongCassidy 04-05-2011 11:11 AM

His age is unknown.. but we think 9-11. My plans, ummm well if my step dad lets me i'm going to try barrels and maybe poles. And if he every gets over his ear beating he took when he was younger maybe roping. The soonest i can get pictures of him is Thursday. Cause today he's up on the very top of the mountain(And i got homework) and tomorrow i have to go take a state test.
