6 yo OTTB, possible prospect.

I found out this morning I have been approved by New Vocations to adopt a thoroughbred.

This guy came up on FB as a preview. He is a 6 yo but other then that I wont know much more for a bit. Put a call in to tell them I was interested, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone has already snatched him up!

So I totally stalked you to this post... *cough* but anyway... other than standing a little under himself which may totally be just an awkward pose rather than a true conformation fault, he looks very well put together. And he's bay... hopefully he's not gone yet! He is gorgeous!

HAHA! Thanks for stalking me and the critique. I had not noticed that. I did kind of think his feet were small.

I find with a lot of OTTBs, their feet are over trimmed. His feet are a touch on the small side but... with good farrier care I don't really foresee it being a major issue for him.

Wow he's got some major eye appeal. Congrats on getting approved. The hard work is done. :)

I agree CB....his feet do appear a bit small to me, maybe has some long pasterns as well?

Other than that, I think he's stunning! Good Luck, and Congrats on getting approved! That's awesome!!
