Potential - review CL ad?
 
Do the withers on this horse look weird? I'm not a conformation expert (though I can spell it!), but they look like a larger hump than they should, to me. What do you guys think? Of course I would also ask just how MUCH testing this horse does, too. :-)

Quarter Horse, Gelding

He's a little uphill, I'd say. He has a huge shoulder. Looks part draft.

sabowin 09-26-2011 11:42 PM

Do you think I should look at him? I'm interested in trails/endurance.

He's got shoulders like a bull, I'd think he'd be real hard to fit for a saddle too.

BaileyJo 09-26-2011 11:47 PM

Yes, I would go see him. But seeing him doesn't mean you have to buy him.

I agree.

I don't like the shoulders at all. Would probably feel strange to ride too - saddle would be at a weird angle.

His legs are too small to support his body mass. See how he has to stand splayed to hold himself up?

sabowin 09-27-2011 11:15 PM

Good eye! I never would have noticed that on my own, but I do think I see what you're talking about. Probably shouldn't add 300 lbs of me + tack + gear, then, huh?
