    I rubbed a spot on his leg and it was white but, we will see... We have a horse at the barn that grew 2 inches after 3.. dif breed, same concept of growth though. He might not. It will take a while to tell. Lol. He will fill out for sure.

It's not like I don't have a trainer.... but he is very well trained. Also I've been riding since I was 4, so I can pretty much handle it, I ride crazy arabs now. The the arena show shot( it is a local park, I know by background) it is very sandy and possible he has sand of his hoofs.. dusty sand (I don't like that park for that reason.) but thanks for insulting me saying I can't ride/ don't need a 3 year old. Maybe it is a different horse, who know, but we have dealt with the seller before and she is a very nice honest person, so thanks for calling her a liar. Everyone is so negative on this site. Can anyone just be freaking happy, or is everyone just a critic.
    You're Welcome

    Aslifegoesby, How was anyone to know that you have a relationship with the seller? When a member comes on her to show off a potential purchase and the only two pictures they present are obviously different horses, what do you expect the reaction or, rather the advice should be? For all anyone knew, you were purchasing the horse off CraigsList and never met the seller before.

    Your experience with horses was suspect because you didn't notice the difference, your excitement was over the fact that a cat could sit on his back, and the seller can sit underneath the horse but he is barn sour.

    Instead of reading the posts as members trying to be helpful, you accuse them - actually me, of calling the seller a liar and how negative we all are. We don't know you. We don't know your experience, your knowledge, your training, how long you have been around horses, etc. This forum is a very helpful place if you give the right information and take things as someone trying to be helpful.

    As for experience .... the answer to that is in my signature: Some people are around horses for 20 years, and some for 1 year 20 times.

    Good luck with your purchase and I hope you get the pictures cleared up.

    Iride - what a great response. It's sad that your concern for the OP is being tossed back in your face. The photos are NOT of the same horse, the 'selling points' highlighted in the OP are not exactly great indicators of a good purchase and you are trying to look out for the OP. Shame on you, I guess, for trying to keep someone from being taken or a ride, literally.
    It's not surprising, though. Throwing a tantrum is becoming the routine response to not hearing what people want to hear.

    Agreed. Iride :) None of us were being rude. We were all just simply going off of what we presented with. Which was a couple of pics of what appear to be and I'm still steadfast with- are two different horses. Perhaps, you know the owner. We don't know. We don't know anything further then what you present us with, aside from that you want advice on this horse and are intrigued that a cat can ride on it's back.

    We were simply giving you the answers that you asked for. :)

    I agree with everyone else. This is not the same horse. Not only are the legs/hooves different, but his head is different too. I would find this very suspect.

    In any case, good luck.

    I was thinking the same thing about the head last night when I read the first part of the thread. I kept scrolling up...then back down (repeated SEVERAL times). But, before I put my 2 cents in, I realized that the OP was already on the defensive.

    Nice to know it wasn't just my eyes giving me a fit...lol.
