darn phone! Natural gaits and the training he currently has under saddle. His manners are impeccable and he's very sturdy in the mind already. I think he may be s cheeky chappy but he's the sort to latch on to an owner with those big beautiful eyes haha! He needs a good haircut too, looks like a blinking freisian right now!

He passed coach check with flying colours....something about " so you went to see a 6 yo mare and come home with a 3 yo stallion....' I think most people think im mad, but we'll see in six months time!

I like him, infact I like him a lot.

He is very much the type of horse I would go for and when he was being led, for a 3yr old colt he was incredibly well bvehaved. I'm not sure I would geld him just yet. As you have the facilities for stallions and he is so good it may be worth leaving him entire.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

You definitely deserve some good luck on your horse search. Here's hoping the PPE goes well this time. He's a cute horse.

definitely being gelded before he comes home as Ingrid my trainer isn't keen on a young stallion disrupting hers hahaha! Easier fir me too as I move next year to another part of Germany and trying to find a yard that takes stallions is hard :/

I really like him. For him being a baby, you seem to still have no trouble getting what you ask out of him. Being level headed is a big bonus. I would love to see conformation shots if you can get some. Let us know how the vet check goes! We're all cheering for you to find a good one that you get to bring home.

Oh I missed the link when I read through the first time. He is a handsome boy. Is that picture pretty current? He has a particularly unfinished look there.

I don't know how current that picture is if I'm nonest, but he looks sturdier now!

Update.

Well, so much for gelding him prior to purchase.

The breeder started throwing all these clauses in, and naturally there is always a risk when gelding. She wanted 1000 cash in hand. If it went wrong, she keeps my money and the horse.

So, phoning for a vet check asap tomorrow, go down with trailer. Bring him to our place whole, and we'll geld him in the roundpen or school when we have his castration insurance through.

Managed to knock his price down to 3700 too, so all in all a darn good bargain!

Fingers crossed for a healthy vet check now!
