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! Posted via Mobile Device
Another thing I forgot to ad is that the back leg with the white sock his hoof kinda wears down more on one side as opposed to wearing evenly. Which means he stands a tad crooked on it. Doesn't seem to effect him any but my mare has this issue worse and it's a bad conformational flaw for her. In the picture of him facing the camera you can somewhat see it. Posted via Mobile Device
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. Posted via Mobile Device
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) Posted via Mobile Device
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! Posted via Mobile Device
