He is beautiful and has many qualities I was looking for and after numerous phone calls with the owner (who by the way I really liked which makes this harder) and videos, my husband and I went to see him yesterday. First of all, the videos were really showed him riding next to trucks, Quads, riding with other horses....but in one video it seemed like their was this little "catch" in his step when starting off. He has four white stockings so I thought it was just the videos reflection off his socks that I was seeing. Anywho back to yesterday, My husband rode him, really liked him; I rode him and for the most part I really liked him too but I was just not sure about him. I told the owner I needed to think about it and on the way home really struggled with my decision, but my husband said give him a try, so I told her I would take him. She agreed to let me take him to my vet for an purchase exam and will take him back if any major red flags come up. Really appreciated that. Well, this morning without my saying anything to them, a couple friends of mine viewed the video and saw the same "catch" in his step as I did and thought there was something off with his left shoulder. Now I did not notice any lameness under saddle, but was not able to ride him very long. So now, I am wondering if I made the right decision and should have listened to my gut feeling in the first place. The owner has already removed the for sale ad from the computer! What should I do? Thanks
    Tell the vet of your concerns, and have him/her perform flexion tests as part of it.
