Two horses I plan to go look at this weekend..tell me what u think


4yo paint qh filly


3yo paint qh stud

There are several other yearlings both fillies and studs he has available, but these are the oldest and best looking to me. The others he has up are half Arab half qh. So tell me your honest opinions of these two horses.

Those pictures are not really suitable for advice - you need pictures with them standing side on with their head up. If I had to pick I'd say I prefer the chestnut paint... what have they done? Are they broken to saddle? Do they have good breeding? What do you want them for?

I personally like the paint stud, but confirmation is hard to tell with these pictures. I can't be for sure, but do his front feet toe out?

The filly/mare looks pretty scrawny to me--possibly a ewe neck as well? She looks a lot younger than 4 in that picture, but maybe that is just me. :)

Both of them don't have much for muscle, but I'm sure with some work they could look pretty good. Which do you prefer temperament-wise?

I'm using these horses as simplenpleasure riding. Nothing fancy. Trail rides, pasture riding, if they work out temperament wise I'd like to take them hog hunting with me. I have limited info on these horses. I haven't seen them in person yet. I don't think these horses were worked extensively so their muscle is prbobaly going to lack compared to the horses on here. These horses are coming from an old backwoods country boy. Lol

Do you have experience training a young horse or someone who does to help you? It is harder than it sounds...breaking a horse into a sound, reliable partner takes a lot of patience and knowledge of how horses think. If you just want a pleasure horse I personally would go for an older horse...price drops considerably once a horse enters his teens, and they will still have many miles and happy trail rides left in them. Plus you usually don't have to put much more training in them! I am not crazy about the conformation of either of these horses, although it is hard to tell with their heads down. The market is great for buying a horse right now...many owners have great, well-trained horses that they just can't afford. I would shop around and make sure you find a good one that will give you years of happy riding...based on conformation, I honestly don't know if either of these ones will be very overall balanced mounts.

I think they both could use some weight. But that stud colt looks a lot like my first horse. I'm partial to baldies.
