Hi everyone! I am taking a drive this sunday to look at a 3 1/2 yr old TB gelding that seems like a dream. Here is the post, and a brief description she sent me.
Thoroughbred Gelding for sale
"LUCKY" AS WE CALL HIM IS A SWEET HORSE THAT NEEDS A GOOD ONE ON ONE HOME, HERE HE IS THE BOTTOM OF THE PECKING ORDER AND BEING BY HIMSELF WOULD BE WONDERFUL FOR HIM.
HE WOULD LOVE A LOT OF ATTENTION.
WE HAVE NEVER SHOD HIM, BUT TRIMMED HIM A FEW TIMES, HE STILL NEEDS A LITTLE WORK WITH THE HIND LEGS, DOES NOT KICK OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT, JUST DOES NOT WANT TO HOLD THEM UP VERY LONG.
WE JUST USE A HACKAMORE ON HIM AND HE REINS WELL WITH IT, HE HAS A NICE WALK AND A SMOOTH LOPE.
MY GRANDDAUGHTER IS A GOOD RIDER AND HAS HER OWN HORSE, BUT IN THE PAST HER EX BOY FRIEND, WHO IS NOT A RIDER AT ALL, RODE THIS HORSE, SO DID HIS LITTLE SISTER.
I BOUGHT THIS HOUSE LAST SPRING ONLY BECAUSE I FELT SORRY FOR HIM, HE WAS VERY SKINNY AND THE MAN WAS WHIPPING HIM.
I WAS SURE I COULD FATTEN HIM UP AND GET HIM A GOOD HOME. I PAID $800 FOR HIM AND HAVE SHOTS, WORMING, HAULING, ETC INTO HIM NOW.
HE HAS GAINED A LOT OF WEIGHT BUT I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A LITTLE MORE WEIGHT ON HIM.
I could use some advice on what to be aware of, what questions to ask, and any concerns any of you see in this horse. I don't believe he is an ex-racer. She also said ehr g-daughter has been riding him all year on trails, and he has been great, even when a deer jumped across there path. Any advice would be much appreciated!!!
