ABOVE the legs.
I thought he was a bit long there too. Thanks.
Its sad actually how his legs are so wonky. I bet he would have made a pretty nice jumper just like his sire if they werent so messed.
His sire is Novalis and he was bred in SK by Dorsch Farms when they still had him. Heres his full pedigree Tiptop Canadian Warmblood
The breeders must have known he wouldnt make it though. He's not even on their sold page and they didnt have much to say about him when I contacted them and didnt really care about how he was doing. And to think, he would have went for atleast $5,000 as a young horse. 3 years prior to me getting him he was full leased to a show barn and they were going to try to use him in lessons. They had him in corrective shoes just masking the real issue. I was told they gave up on him once he was sound because it cost too much and he was quite the handful. I think it was just pain still.
Anyways Im happy I have him, he can spend the rest of his life with me. He's a doll to be around and its just a plus that we have him now pasture sound and sound for light trail riding =)
