@celeste, I'll look into it..I've been thinking of trying english honestly, but haven't gotten around to it. If I could ride him english even for awhile until/if his back gains muscle.
@frlsgirl, yeah I was surprised too..a few other people wanted him. But he was suppose to have some issues, and they needed him gone because he was bullying an older mare they had had for several years.
I haven't had any real problems with him yet other than when he bucked. And he does crib, but not often..mostly in the stall. And he will pace at the gate when he wants to come in. But I think it's more of a quirk and he's ready to eat.
He's been gentle on the ground, even while being led by my mom who isn't horse savy and on the way to eat in his stall. So that's pretty impressive, my other horses will now her down if they're going to eat and she's leading the way...:)..both of them know they can push her around though.
About the bucking, could he buck because he needs his sheath cleaned? His back doesn't seem sore in his back but he does stand awkwardly camped out sometimes, and he looks like he could use a cleaning. Plus it probably has been awhile since he's had one... I do plan to get it cleaned soon regardless if it could be related to bucking or not.
