    I can kinda see it, but I think it's the angle and shadows.

    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.

    I've bought many horses over the years-mares, stallions, geldings-from free to a few thousand dollars-never had a vet check & only had 1 horse turnup unsound, but even that may not have been found in a check. I did have her for a couple of years & ponied her a lot w/out problems,so maybe the problem happened later & I missed the injury somehow.

    He is a handsome fellow & I really like his color & build. With a little polishing, I think he'll really shine!

    Crooked front legs. I mean really crooked.

    I like him but keep that in mind.

    Elana, crooked how? Like toeing in?

    Sunday or Monday I will try for better photos. My trainer is going with me.

    I can kinda see how his knees seem to dip into the inside... I'll look him over good again.

    his pasterns look very up right. Looks like you have a lot of leg issues and if you can't see it you really would be benefited from having a vet look at him

    Good luck Paint! Sorry I never sent you that sale ad I mentioned, I asked BM to share it and she never did, so maybe she's changed her mind about the horse I was thinking of. Sounds like you've found something good though.

    I ran a 2 week trial by the sellers. I know a lot of people won't do them but it would give me 2 weeks to get our hands on him. Worth a try.

    If they won't do a 2 week trial ill just take the trainer out to see him I guess.
