I agree that you should get the chip looked at no matter what. But honestly, if you stick to lower levels like you originally said was all you wanted to do, I really don't think it will be an issue :)

I really like him. :) I keep coming back to him an finding more to like.

Lady from the rescue replied to me too. She recommended I get in contact with a certain trainer. Hes got two 8 y/os listed at $1500 each. She said the prices are negotiable to a degree. Theyve both been vetted sound (had PPEs) and any interested buyers have open access to all x-rays and the vets report. Ill get their pictures and videos up soon. She said theyve worked with him to place his retirees before and they're always nice horses.

Pretty sure the above links are broken [Its my phone I swear]. Here's my second try:
Nope, videos are still broken but photos work. If you Google Hopscotch Ali, you can see the browns video. Cant find the gelding, but his name is Just One Spot aka Spot

Love the gelding's expression
Like his front end, her hind. They're both out of shape, he's a bit plump ( easy keeper, could be a plus).
All in all, I like him better, although his right hind looks odd. Could be the pic.
Off to find video now.....

That should be the gelding.
I really like him
IMO he's got way better movement than the mare.

I definitely like the gelding a lot more than the mare! He's super cute... but I still think Oliver is cuter conformationally/looks in general. I'm dying to see a video of him!
    03-21-2013, 09:20 PM
Yeah, looks and acts like he's a real character.....too bad he's so far away.....he would fit really will in my herd...

I also like Ollie better, but over all Im leaning towards Spot a little more if we can get his owner talked down on price a little. My reasoning:
-Spots already had his PPE and came out sound. If I spent the $300-$500 (is that about right?) on Ollie and he didn't come out sound, Id still be paying the extra five on Spot. If I could get Ollies owner talked down so he paid for at least part of the PPE, it wouldn't be such a big deal
-Spot is a good 3-4 hours closer (and hes still 2 away at that). For Ollie, Id feel a little more pressured to meet, test, and buy all on the same day. For Spot I could go meet him a few times before really making the decision (and still be saving gas money)
