They are really nice horse buddy09. Ive seen the bay roped off of, penned, sorted, team sorting, and even some rodeo pickup and ive seen the buckskin do sorting, penning and alittle bit of roping.

Hi buddy09...

Haven't you posted these guys before? I thought, if I remember correctly, you were leaning more towards the buckskin. I know zero about western riding but they both are nice looking horses.

buddy, first of all, I would never show a horse with a moron standing in the saddle (sorry but that is a real buga boo with me). Secondly, I don't think you can get a real opinion just looking at a horse standing there except as a halter prospect.

If you want to know what the horse has the potential of doing, look at it's breeding, and look at some videos of his movement. If you want a cow horse, how is he around cows, etc.

The only thing I'm really noticing about the buckskin horse is that I think he would make a better roper or barrel racer than the other one. I can't really see the other one too good, but from what I can see, the buckskin has shorter, stockier legs, which is great for getting down low and into the dirt and moving fast while in the dirt.

I don't think there is anything wrong with someone standing on a horses back, it mite not be the most comfortable thing for the horse, but it's certainly not going to hurt em, maybe the rider if they don't know how the horse is. Would I ever do it? Hmmm, not at the moment thats for sure lol but maybe with a little more work I'd think about it.

:wink: First- Wasnt this topic already deleted i think you should respect the forum and not post .

:?: Second- Do you have the permission of the owners to post pics of their horses? and get them critiqued (sp?) I personally be very upset if I knew about this and they were my horses.

:) Third- I personally prefer the bay as he has a nicer build and is bigger/taller.

I don't get what you are trying to accomplish by posting this again...

Opinions were given on the horses in the last post, you said you were on a time limit anyway... wouldn't they be gone by now?

What makes you think posting a second time will get you any better results? The first one was deleted for a reason, I think you should have respected the mods decision.

I stand by my first opinion on the horses, I would pass em by. From what you said about the riders and how the animals are handled, I would not trust them with a 13 year old rider. Neither has good enough conformation(from what I see) to risk wasting the money on IMHO. But you seem to want one so why dont you decide?

If you know what the horses are like you need to pick...

Please don't take this as me being rude, i just know the last time you posted this it was a very controversial topic...

You are are making me really annoyed. The reason you didn't get any critique in the first post was because the pics were not good for critiquing! They just show them standing, with a guy on top. on the bay you can't even see his feet(tarp)! If you got better pics and maybe put 'em in the critique section, maybe people would critique the horses, not the guys.
EDIT
oh, and everytime someone trys to critique about 1 thing, you contradict them. I think you should continue looking.

so sorry to double post, but this is a critique fron nrhreiner on the last thread:
"From those pictures it is hard to say about their conformation. The buckskin dose not look too bad. but the other you can not tell much from that angle. It makes him look weak in the rear and off the rest of the way around but could be the picture.

As to price. If they are geldings and well trained and ready for you to show the price is not bad. You would end up with that in training if you buy one who needs work."
^^^ that states it all.

Get actual conformation pictures and someone may be able to help you.

You said they are out with cows so they would make good cow horses...work them on cows and see how they actually do.

If you don't want a competitive horse though, you could pick either and it wouldn't really matter. If you're looking to not win so that people will like you (?) you could go get far cheaper horses.
