My newly purchased gelding

Ok so recently I was looking at tb gelding to purchase it turned out he was in need of a vet :( so it was on to the other one .... And here he is .... He is an ex race horse ...... 6 yrs this yr , about 16.3 to 17 hh and is quiet as a mouse. Tell me your thoughts : Hope this works as I am posting off my phone .

Nice looking horse:)

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Nice horse. I think the noise you are referring to is typical of a gelding while trotting or cantering. It is due to the the movement and his sheath.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

OK, so now that i am actually on the computer - i have been able to post some pics of him rather then sending all of you to photo bucket - your thoughts on how he is put together would be greatly apprieacted.






His is apart of you, he is your horse.

His neck looks a little too short and his shoulder looks a little straight. BUT, is he really is quiet, THAT is more important, IMO.

He is nice looking but I would be concerned with finding a proper saddle with those withers. They are HIGH

Well I LOVE almost ALL TB's so I'm definitely prejudiced. I think he's nicely put together. There is so many choices in tack now a days you should not have any problem finding the proper gear for him. I especially like the first pic with the beautiful sky. I had 2 TB's for 23 and 19 yrs. They were the most versatile, giving wonderful animals EVER!!.

I ended up purchasing this lovely boy, and he was delivered to me on sunday that just went, he is so sweet ....loves his cuddles and his squishes. I ended up having to get him a 6'9 rug - feels like im trying to make a bed when putting it on him lol. he loves his food that is for sure. I am excited as I have just got a day off and i think i may take him for a little ride around his new home to get him used to everything not just his paddock. My favourite thing about him is his lil star on his head - he just seems toi love being scratched there. :) thank you all for your comments.
