Pintaloosa

10 yo Paint ◊ Appy gelding. I know it's a big no-no to breed based solely on color, which I think is what happened here. I originally wanted to have him started on the barrel pattern. Is there anything about his conformation that screams "not a good idea!"? Does he have any advantages?

Just want to say he's looking really good! I remember when your first got him and he looks like he's come a long way from then!! Keep up the good work with him :)

Hold on to what makes you happy! If it tries to buck you off, just hold on even tighter!

I like him. Now, Iím not great at critiques, but I really like his shoulder, along with the withers area and overall top line. Nice and muscular! I canít really tell on his front feet nor am I a farrier, but a picture without the bell boots would help. Also, Iím not sure if it is the way heís standing or whatever, but it almost looks as if his back hooves point to the outsides, just a little bit. If you could get a picture of his back legs, squared, from directly behind and from the side, that would be awesome.

Beautiful boy, love his color. I donít see anything major about his confo that screams Ďdonít ride him!í

This is an excellent example of a really good cross. The horse has really nice angles of shoulder and hip, good size to the hip, really nice set of the neck and length of neck, with head size that is in correct proportion. Short, strong looking back, short canons in front, longer in back. About the only thing I don't like is that his back pasterns are more upright than I like.


I think this fellow could do whatever that he is mentally well matched for.
Is he registered? As a half Appy?

Yep, his hind toes do point outwards a tad but I've never noticed any issues with it.

Well, if you get him registered as a half appy, you can set your sights on doing the chief Joseph trail ride. It's a bucket list item!

I'll echo 'nice looking horse'. If you want a critique, need better pic & different angles. Bellboots & light on hinds makes it difficult to tell about those bits...

Some info I've found helpful; [COLOR=Lime][B]www.horseforum.com/horse-health/hoof-lameness-info-horse-owners-89836/
