The seller was very honest about him. However I will check it out a little more.
At the risk of being flamed:
I have a personal set price limit on what I will and will not have vet checked. He falls under the limit of not getting one.
I have had one horse in my lifetime vet checked, my last one, and I had to put him down this spring at only 11 years old and only owning him a year.
Not that vet checks aren't worth it, but I'm willing to take the risk I guess.
