HELLO EVERYONE as you all know I just purchased a thoroughbred mare well I was looking online and my boyfriend and I have been planning on getting another one. WELL! I think I found one. He is a 4-8 year old Thoroughbred Quarter Horse :) Broke to ride. We are going to go look at him tomorrow but here are the ad pictures I found today what do you think? There not the best but I will be taking more tomorrow once we go see him

Is it just me, or does he seem a little cow hocked? He is a cutey though.

The owner is wrong about the breed of the horse. He cannot possibly be a TB x QH with nothing else in there. He has tobiano markings under that grey from what I can see, which rules out that particular cross.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Your title says "I'm buying this horse" - is that the case or are you just going to look at the horse to consider a purchase? I ask because it is very clear you are excited and I'd hate to see you get so caught up in that that you are blind/deaf to valid concerns and end up making a poorly advised purchase.
