He doesn't have a bowed tendon, I think its the way I took the picture. I was holding him while using my phone to take it. He kept trying to come towards me while I was taking the picture. He thinks the phone is a treat!!! As far as his personality, he is sweet. Very calm and forgiving. I have never seen him get worked up or worried. He doesn't get bothered by other horses, doesn't even pay attention to them. He learns very quickly. I have not owned a horse for over 7 years and I personally called myself crazy for even thinking about buying a horse right from the track...but as soon as I met him, I knew he was the right horse for me. He was practically asleep when I met him on the track. He didn't need a chain and he did get a little excited when other horses were acting goofy but he quickly calmed down and acted like nothing has happened. I could touch him every where on the track, as well as go into his stall while he was eating. He learned cross ties on the first day. He is calm with kids, dogs, cats and tractor equipment. He is just a solid guy, I haven't seen him spook at anything yet. I taught him lunging in about a month, lunging with side reins and I have already been ridding him.
Its funny because I was riding him yesterday while a girl was having a lesson on a "BROKE" horse who was bucking and carrying on like a green horse while my guy just went around on a loose rein snaffle not even looking at the antics of the other horse. I have trotted and cantered him on both leads started lunging over cross rails. He is amazing, I don't know what else to say he just has a good head on his shoulders.
