    I looked a bit at his pedigree and he is quite well bred and that is why he has the bone he has. He is a nice horse that looks very warm blood. He has a lot of presence with all that chrome and his bone.

    If this were a few years ago, he would have been snapped up at that price. Alas, the times have changed. He is a good one.. but not $3500 good for the level of traing he has. If he were level 2 dressage horse.. or even an advanced level 1.. well.. MAYBE then....

    I'm not as concerned about the temperament because my husband is an experienced rider. 4-6 is actually a good range for what he's looking for. He's used to OTTBs, Anglos, and Arabs. His last horse was a 9 year old OTTB.

    The lack of any post-track training is a very good point. I think I will call and talk to the owner and see what this horse has been doing for the past 2-3 years if anything. He doesn't look like he's just been a pasture puff.

    One thing I really liked is the stockier size as a TB. If he's really as big as the ad says, then he'll be the perfect weight/size/type for what my husband wants overall. Of course, that's a big if.

    So, I'll call the owner tomorrow and ask about any training or riding since the track and see if I can get more pictures. Hopefully I can get some to help with conformation. I really wish there were more pictures that could be useful, though.

    ETA: I have no intention of paying $3500 for this type of horse. I will definitely make a lower offer if it gets to that point.

    I have one of those 'stockier' TBs myself Sea, so if you can get him for a lower price, I'd definitely consider it.

    He's a looker and his conformation is good, but the lack of training concerns me. For $3,500 I'd expect more than him just running 3 races several years ago.
