Already bought him- what do you think?

I've been posting for my Husband in his quest for a horse. We have been from draft x's to Fresian's ... Then gaited horses. For better or worse we have purchased this boy, since he would like the option of doing endurance with him.

We would like to know what you think of him... And thank all of you who have already provided advice, and talking us out of some unrealistic choices.

Congrats, I'm glad you found such a great horse! He looks like he'll be great for what you guys want, although I can't judge if he'll be able to hold up for long endurance rides, as I don't know anything about this breed. But he looks like he does fine on rough trails and such.

I think you found a winner :)

I just hope you don't treat him like they have.. Horses aint puppies!

I look forward to seeing pics of the happy horse couple :)!

Stupid question of the day, because I am trying to learn about gaited horses myself.

In the "Levi trail gaiting" video on the website (6th video down on the right) what gait is he doing? Is it a Fox Trot?

In one of his other videos he looks like he might be doing something different. But in the "Levi trail gaiting" video he really has a butt giggle like my Fox Trotter does. But I am not good at identifying gaits. I'm trying to learn.

you bought him already? did you go and actually meet him? are there any stipulations as to the condition of the horse when you go to pick him up or upon delivery? i worry about such a thing if you haven't seen/experienced him in person. good luck.

Well he doesn't look terribly comfortable, but who knows!
I hope you've actually been out to see him, and had him vetted - a lot of money for a trail horse.

Vegas is a pretty short flight, so we looked at him. My husband liked his gait, I didint care for it. Felt kinda like one half was trotting, but forgot to inform the other half. I guess I'm just used to trotting, and anything else feels weird... To each their own.
