Who was it who used to say that after three months you hide a horse behind the barn until it’s three-years-old?
Oh boy. That bad? 😂Who was it who used to say that after three months you hide a horse behind the barn until it’s three-years-old?
Wow, you have no idea how encouraging this is! 😂Actually, I'm liking this youngster.

Nice breedy head, ears set well forward of his throatlatch. Nice clean neck. Neck fits nicely into his shoulders. Well defined withers, nice back. He's showing a bit of the curve in his back, but that should disappear as he puts on more weight. Good croup.
His legs in the front and back pics appear to be pretty correct.
Nice deep heartgirth.
Gaskin is tied in nicely.
Since he's got a big of a belly, don't slack off on your keeping him wormed.
All in all he's a nice prospect. May I ask what your plans for him are?
Are you going to train him yourself or have somebody else train him? I guess that that vet only likes purebred horses lolWow, you have no idea how encouraging this is! 😂
Like I said, my vet was pretty horrified at my choice.
My plans for him are not totally set. The thing I want most is for him is to be just an all-around horse. One you can trail ride one minute and go rope off of the next. He's not set as a reining/roping/barrel racing/ect. horse. Just an all-around riding horse.
Some 2 year olds really go through a fugly stage. Yours isn't seeming to do that! He's a pretty decent looking 2 year old.I've been waiting to start this thread, but was waiting for my guy to put on a bit more weight first. He's pretty much up to a good weight, except for his topline, which still needs a bit. (He's kind of getting a haybelly 😂) Anyway, here are the pictures. Tell me the negative and the positive; any thoughts you have. I included pictures of him squared up as well as not.
I'm not an expert, but I'm guessing it's probably not great.
Some of the pictures are in bad lighting - sorry.
Yes, I'm training him myself.Are you going to train him yourself or have somebody else train him? I guess that that vet only likes purebred horses lol
