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. He‘s got two 8 y/o‘s listed at $1500 each. She said the prices are negotiable to a degree. They‘ve both been vetted sound (had PPE‘s) and any interested buyers have open access to all x-rays and the vet‘s report. I‘ll get their pictures and videos up soon. She said they‘ve worked with him to place his retirees before and they're always nice horses. Posted via Mobile Device
Pretty sure the above links are broken [It‘s my phone I swear]. Here's my second try: Gelding Gelding Mare Mare
Nope, videos are still broken but photos work. If you Google Hopscotch Ali, you can see the brown‘s video. Can‘t find the gelding, but his name is Just One Spot aka Spot Posted via Mobile Device
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.....
I also like Ollie better, but over all I‘m leaning towards Spot a little more if we can get his owner talked down on price a little. My reasoning:
-Spot‘s 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, I‘d still be paying the extra five on Spot. If I could get Ollie‘s 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 he‘s still 2 away at that). For Ollie, I‘d 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) Posted via Mobile Device
