I agree, I like my horses fat as well! He's put on a bit of wieght since a got him, but my vet says I can't let him get any fatter. The more weight he has on him the harder it is on the leg.
I talked to the owner of Licky, the Saddlebred/Arabian. He's ragistered as a half Arab as well as a National Show Horse. He sounds great and she talked to her trainer and he said that Lucky would do great in endurance.
However she did say he has slight arthritis in back legs. She said it doesn't affect his riding at all, he's not stiff at all. She agreed to a check up before buying him and called her vet and told them to release all his vet records to me. Should this be a no go for me?
