I kept thinking there was something with his leg I couldn't put my finger on.

When he got posted on Facebook people commented on the puffiness, they said it's an old bow
ETA Why do they not adopt past Texas? Did they say?

No... It might have to do with welfare checks on the horse that they don't want to have to drive very far. There are TB rescues in CA that don't adopt past boarding states... Unfortunately it is there right.

Looks like an old bow to me. While that is not a definite deal breaker (I had an intermediate event horse who had an old bow) he would have to go through a very intense PPE.

it looks like they had some sort of wrap on that leg too. Look at the line in the hair.

That leg would need to be cold and pass a vet.. xrays and the whole nine yards. I noticed the leg in the first photo and my first thought was "what a shame."

He is a nice enough horse. Short back and balanced. Hocks are a bit high off the ground. I like him.. but get a reliable equine practitioner to look at that leg and give a diagnosis and prognosis. If you cannot get that, pass.

In this world of horses there really is not much future for geldings that have chronic soundness issues.

This is what I think:

His neck comes out of his chest a bit low and he is a little pigeon breasted. He is tied in at the knee. He is long in the coupling and he looks to have something not right about the angle of his left front foot. His cannon is set too far back under his hock and he looks to have incorrect angulation behind. He has a dip behind his withers. He is a bit light on bone.

He is beautifully presented but he looks not let down yet.. and if he IS let down he looks like he has worried himself thin (ulcers maybe?).

Thank you Elana...I am learning more about what to look for :~) but I am NO expert, that is why I keep asking for help.
