Ask when the last time they were wormed, vaccinated, and if they have an utd coggins.. Don't buy anything with a runny nose, or anything gross looking on eyes, mouth, or nose area. Make sure, the hoovs aren't flared, and flat looking. Look at the manure, is it runny,weird looking, etc?.. Make sure they look healthy, and clean.. I like to know bloodlines, just because you have to be careful, when you hear the name "Impressive".. sorry to throw him under the bus, but It's true. make sure the horse isn't stiff, or gimpy. :) pick up the feet, pick them out, and have a better look. Look for stone bruising, thrush, etc, press the sole, to check for tenderness. I like to run my index, and thumb down the spine gently, but firm, just too see, if they twitch.
