    Default Cute thoroughbred alert!

    Please....someone get him. He is so, so cute!!! Looks like he would make a great pony club mount eventually!

    Looks good from that photo. Well "let down", good head and neck insertion, well balanced. Not every one needs 16h.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    He's gorgeous. He's also just a baby. Here's his pedigree:

    He was a March foal, so he's just 2 1/2. He's got years to grow.

    He's got kind of funky hind legs--at least to my eye. Not sure if they are promising for super soundness.

    Would one of the experts chime in on that?

    At only 2, I'd be surprised if he stays under 16H.

    He's only 2. He's got growing to do. Daddy is over 16h.
    This guy is very cute for someone looking for a project.

    I would be more worried about his front legs, he ties in beneath the knees and that right front pastern, eeeks. But, he is still growing. I just don't like that weak looking area below the knees, and yes Viney, he has relatively small hocks and quite a bit of length of leg below. Pictures sometimes, actually lots of times are distortions but I would like to see that in person. Also, they should stay off his back for a while.

    I just think he is so adorable! and at only 2.5 years old he has growing left to do and his legs were saved because he didn't race! For a price as low as that I think it's a steal!
