maybe adopting?

This is Big boy or Power In Truth, I'm good friends with the rescuer and apperently he was givin away to be re trained for a riding horse and ended up at new holland auction. This is why he is skinny.

What would you do with him after he fattened up? He looks decent to me for a thoroughbred, but it depends on what discipline you plan to use him for. Something else to keep in mind, he may become a different horse (personality) after he gains weight, might be why he ended up at auction after an attempt to retrain him.

There is something wonky about his knees...can't put a finger on it..
He is cute though!

He is a little bit over at the knee and his back legs are a little bit too straight. I think you could train him for hacking, and light pleasure riding. I had a friend with a QH who was over at the knee and she would sometimes buckle and fall down when worked hard, and when she was in her mid teens. Do NOT jump him. Just FYI. If he has a good temperment, I think you might enjoy him. =D
