He has been vetted and seems to be sound in mind, too. He's been off the track for quite some time.
He's also been for sale for quite some time.....maybe that will reflect negotiability.

Hopefully. Though it could also be a sign that the owners are very difficult to negotiate with and everyone else walked away. Also, here's another mare. She was just listed. Nothing beyond age (10), height (16 hh), photos, and shes been restarted. Also priced at $1500. Im pretty sold on Spot, but wouldn't mind seeing this girl move. She's flashy :) Can you tell Im not in any rush to bring home just any horse? Im really trying to explore all my options. It will be the first horse I buy myself, and I plan to have him/her around for awhile.

On this trainer's website is one more horse I really liked...Gracie, I think. Bay. She was by far the best.
The black.....not my cup of tea, don't like that dip of the back, she's got strange feet for a TB.....expression( huge deal for me).
Spot: PPE done. Take 500 off the 1500...then talk them down to maybe 1200. Then you have a decent price, a cute horse with a fresh mind, not potentially messed up already, to train like you want it. MHO....

I agree, Spot is probably who Ill go with (and he needs a new name. I don't like the cute nanes). I like Gracie, but shes also $1500 without the PPE

TB's have weird names. His is less weird
I have a Patino. Short "Tino". Didn't fit him at all. Somehow one day "Muffolo" came to my mind. He responded. I had no clue what it meant, or if it meant anything. Well, it does . It's Italian ( I lived there for some years) and is the part between nose and lip of a cow......go figure

I do that all the time....wait what comes naturally as barn name.

He looks really, really sweet. I understand your reasoning for wanting him over Oliver. And I agree with deserthorsewoman. Not a fan of that black mare. Have you gone to see Spot yet?

Show name: See Spot Run ;)
