Too difficult to post his photo here (the oh usually does it) but if you look at the Inglis Premier website results, or the Griffiths Racing website and hit "horses available", you'll be able to view two different photos of him.

Was I right or wrong to pass this time??  Any comments painting me as a genius or a dope would be appreciated.

A friend has taken a share so will be barracking for the otherwise well put together wonky kneed poor footed fella.

That's the horse, not the friend.  Wink

Low heels, not enough bone. Good natural muscling, got a bit of growing to do.

Any other comments on the knees?

Well his knees aren’t completely flat, but not severely behind at knee. Hooves look mismatched, low slung. Don’t think farriers can do much about it, but maybe remedial shoeing could keep it in check and comfortable. But back to the lack of bone, esp in a colt.

I had a horse who had feet that made this colt's look like a greek statue.  Thin, white walls on three of four, low heels, stone bruises every other week, total mess all around.

Once he got a SKILLED farrier working on him, he grew about 2cm of heel all around and had feet good enough to ride on dry, hard ground barefoot...in only about 6 months!  The key turned out to be really frequent maintenance, every two weeks at most.  When his farrier went to catch other horses in the paddock for work, he'd whip out a rasp and fix something on my gelding right then and there.  My gelding adored the farrier, he would stand perfectly still in a field with no halter or rope and let the farrier work.

I'd start with getting x-rays of all four so you see what you're working with, then get the best farrier you can to use those x-rays for a shoeing program.

Wayne Turner is in VIctoria, and he’s a master craftsman. If this horse found Wayne, he might have a bright future

Wayne Turner, Geelong
Wish I could get my horses to him, but out of our reach.

Yeah not a great photo GAJ, but my first impression be it right or wrong is that she appears to have thrown to the dam's bottom line rather than the "miler" profile of her top 75%.Though a  new photo might well suggest otherwise.

ps who's that scrawny strapper?

I hope you are right SC, I would like to think she will take the traits from the dam line, the previous stables hopes for her was to be a 1200 - 1400m Horse? So they thought she wouldn't cut it at that in Sydney. The mare line I would have thought would dictate the aptitude. Hopefully...
She is quite heavy in the forehand moving, but time and work should help her balance. But she is young.

Thank you,
I'll try for a more honest picture of her soon, she is actually more impressive in the front in real life!!
But we can work on the motor  Wink
Great for a 2yo all the same.
