The one we ended up getting is differant from the one at the start.
He's 18hh (I'm 5'10 and he's about 4 inches taller than me, so he's... 18.2, right?), broke to ride, broke to drive. He hasn't been ridden much the last year, and his feet desperately need to be trimmed, but he's sweet as can be, an easy keeper and leads, picks up feet, bathes, etc. like a dream.
His old owner has boarded him for a year; she boarded him at one place for 2 months and another place for 4 months, before boarding him at Dave's barn for 6 months. She didn't pay her full bill at any of the places, and was made to sign a slightly differant contract, meaning 3 months of no money = him being recalled. We're paying $370 for him (3 months' board + fee for him damaging his stall).
I'm really glad she's selling him. He was her first horse, and she got a draft because she's... maybe 5'8 and weighs about 160, and she decided she needed a draft to carry her. She couldn't handle him (she was deathly afraid of him, and I find him less intimidating than my other, much smaller horses!) and couldn't ride him.
I saw her ride him once. She put the bit in his mouth backwards, and tugged on the reins constantly while kicking at his sides. She then screamed bloody murder when she slid
off him. Yup.
He's taller than he looks in the picture; it's a bad angle. He's considerably taller than the roundpen's wall.
