Thanks you, I've seen many horses around here and the weight/muscle seems to peak around where he is now. He is on a good diet and I'm riding him over lot of varied terrain with ups and downs with lot of walk trot only, not cantering yet. Will see if he will gain more muscle.
I love the stocky QHs and Paints:)

I love western and I brought that saddle from stares Simco Arabian, it fits him perfectly.

HI Marwari,

I was just checking back on your thread to see that you purchased this horse.

as for coloring, I'd call him a blue roan. this is my favorite color pattern of all.

the saddle looks like it may be a good fit, but I am wondering , considering that he has rather high "knife" withers, . . . when you sit in the saddle, can you still get at least one finger under the fork (the arched part in front), between the top of his wither bones and the saddle above it?
if not, then the saddle is actuall putting downward pressure on those bones, and will sore the horse miserably and can cause longterm damage. if it is just a tiny bit tight, you can possibly use some shims to lift the front of the saddle enough to clear those bones . be sure to check out the clearance WHILE the saddle is weighted with a rider.

also, the fender will need a stirrup hobble. this is a small strip of leather that buckles around the bottom of the fender, just above the stirrup itself. it keeps that "loop" you can see from becoming a place where you might accidently catch your foot or leg in (dangerous).

your horse is really a very nicely built animal, with a lovely face . he'd probably fetch a fair price in the US based on his original appearance.

Marwari, you've got him looking fantastic! His weight is good, coat looks healthy. I am so happy for you. What did you name him? Has he been gelded yet? Please keep the pictures coming and updates on your dream horse!

Thanks for your kind words and advice about saddle and hobbles.
In one picture where he was under tree, he looks like blue roan, but he changes color/shade so often.

He has high withers and after he gained some muscle on back withers don't seem as high as they did. I checked for saddle gap and I was able to put two fingers after I'm on it. I usually prop up the saddle pad a bit as well. Will be getting a new wither relief pad from US soon.
I had hobbles but took them out as I was giving way too many joy rides for kids and their friends(I lead the horse) and adjusting stirrups every few min, lost one of it. Need to buy another kid size saddle so that I can use this just for myself.

Thank you, I've named him cloud. He is still a stallion, but he'll be gelded in two weeks. Will post all the details in a separate thread.
Feel bad already to dig up this old thread and post my irrelevant blabbering.

Horse lovers talking about horses is never irrelevant. I find your posts fascinating.

Cloud is getting cuter in each picture!
