    I wouldnt buy him for that much. It sounds like he needs work.
    Personally, Id keep looking or try to get a lower price if you like him.

    I wouldn't say 'work' just needs to be ridden and more muscle. He didnt do anything wrong while I rode him he just totally looks like an under muscled thoroughbred. thank you so far for the feedback!

    Most likely this will just get worse with age.....and may contribute to arthritis, it has in my older guy. I think you can do better, but if you like him......go for it!

    Yeah, my mare has this issue badly and she has a club foot on that one as well and arthritis. It didnt seem to effect him too badly but maybe with some corrective trimmings it will get better. Who knows! I totally dispise horse shopping. I hate it with a passion.

    Argh, I typed a reply and then lost my internet connection and it deleted everything :/

    In my opinion, if the horse has muscle wastage and wears unevenly on one of his hooves, I would be concerned that there is an underlying issue/injury that you have not been made aware of, or else it could develope into one later.

    Also, the fact that they were a tad sly about the loading issue would send a huge red flag up for me as to what else they are not being entirely honest about.

    Saying all of that, if you like the horse, by all means best of luck. We all know half the battle on finding a horse is having that "click" with one in particular :)

    Ahh. I just hate buying hkrses. :( I get soo scared and nervous about it cause I already have one horse with a bunch of issues but then again she was given to me for free..and I do want to have a vet check on him but I just spent 400$ on the last horse I was suppost to get that fell through. (Not due to any health issues, though)

    I will say I like the top of this horse's pedigree but could find nothing on the dam.

    I would love a horse with all that cutting breeding but not a 12 year old gelding and I would want to see the bottom of the pedigree as well.

    He is a bit straight thru the hocks and he is Thoroughbred looking.

    Ya totally looks like a skrawny young thoroughbred. Although in the video he looks fairly decent. Maybe with muscle he won't look so crazy.

    Sounds like you're thinking with your heart and not listening the the warning bells you've already described. I would definitely include "trailer loading and unloading" in the pre-purchase check list!

    Well yes was thinking with my heart yesterday and kinda did an impulse buy. I'm very bad at doing that. I am kinda pissed off about the trailer loading thing because it says in his ad that he loads. This is why I dislike horse shopping!
