I agree that's how I ended up with this one....thats also why i've been banned from looking at craigs list by my hubby :)...we need another horse like a whole in the head lol....but I guess you need to ask yourself what are you going to use it for???? Do you need speed, strength ect. Or do you just want a baby for pleasure rides, trails and just fun?? If that's it do lunge so you can make sure everything moves like it should and get the poor thing outa there :) if you need more then I guess if you can turn your head and run lol....becuz doesnt look like guarentee can be made write now ;(

Really they should be giving the horse away because they do not have the money to take care of it. I would be calling the humane society on them.

haha, my husband keeps trying to ban me from Craigslist! We now have ten cats in my house (four are rescues kittens found in the road at NIGHT during a storm at three weeks old!!!!), one of which has a home pending flight across the country, but that still leaves NINE cats. XD

Then again...he did offer me a purebred maine coon kitten if I didn't buy Kiera, which I did. HAHA

He said she has been ridden about 10 times.. doubt there gas been much work done.

Not sure of her height I need to ask.

Yea already planned on wormer!

I'm just unsure of this.. which is probably me telling me to wait a bit.. I just hope she doesn't end up some place worse ya know?
With the smooth muscle and low croup, she could very well be part Arab.

Oh, and she has been ridden a heck of a lot more than 10 times...it takes more riding than that to leave a saddle and girth hair discoloration. As young as she is and as much as she has evidently been ridden, I would vet her myself - even if she were free...

I have never seen a horse with actual saddle marks that look like that. I guess anything is possible, but I think the saddle marks are just dust. She was probably just ridden and put away. I say that because I used to have a horse the same color and when he had his winter coat anytime you touched him the dust would come up from his coat. If you patted him you would leave hand prints.

If she is sound and you just want a pleasure horse, check her out. She might be good for more, but if you are only going in with the goal of her being a pleasure horse then you are less likely to be disappointed if she doesn't have the athletic potential for more. She certainly deserves a chance with someone who will care about her.

^^That would be my guess as well, THR, that it's just a dust mark where the saddle was.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
