Whalin (whale-in) is a Appendix Quarter Horse..I got him for Christmas (I had no idea my mom got him for 2 months!)
-screams like a little girl- Unfortantly no pictures of him yet, as I am forgetfull and forgot to bring the camera to the barn. He is 4 years old (late foal) and was just broke this year. Whalin has excellent ground manners and temperament. I couldn't ask for more! My family got him for a great price, after years of searching, man ol' man. xD
The only thing am worried about it he is spur broke and am not expericed with that! Hopefully I'll "master" it soon..lol
Whalin has face markings closly resembling Barbaro...

((Note this horse piture above is not Whalin, it is Barbaro, hope there is no confusion)
This is not me riding him, this is his previous owner. In this video he looks short and stocky, but he is more slender and tall in person.
Critiques or thoughts on movement and anything else?


I'll get pitures hopefully by tommorow! :lol:

He looks really nice; I like that he's actually being allowed to use his hindend fairly well...(one of my pet peeves of WP is that the horses don't use their hind ends as their 'drive train' because they are forced to go so unnaturally slow...

As far as how he's trained, I would suggest you get some lessons with him; if you can, get the lessons with the person who actually trained him.

I like how his previous owner trained him carefully and softly. C:
Oh yes, I am going to get lessions by someone I think that will be great, Whalins pervious owner lives 3 hours away from me and he doesn't (I highly doubt he does) do lessions. But lessions are a diffenet yes!

Thank you so much everyone! I forgot the camera yet agian, tommorow I promise! And maybe even some pitures of him playing in the snow. :lol:

Thank you. =) I've always had a love for tall slender horses. xDI've always ridden a stocky tank like horse. xD Slender and tall is new to me. I first got on him ad looked down and I was like "Dam, toothpick!"

My camera and computer seem to hate me..This is the only picture my computer loaded on. Dx Here is Whalin, with his hood and blanket...
