    Well I got his throat scoped and he is a roarer, level 4 which means he's completely paralyzed on one side....so no buy. .

    OH NO I'm sorry, it sounded like you really liked him.

    No chance for a tie back surgery?

    Sorry to hear that. At least you found out before you bought him!

    I really did like him, but the owner refuses to drop the price. I am not paying 2k to 1.5k for a horse I have to spend 1.5k to 2k on a surgery for.
    I really liked him, he had wonderful potential...but I don't think it will work. I told his owner to come get him when he can. So...Looking for more. I will post any I find here

    Oh, I'm sorry. That just sucks. Don't worry though, you'll find another that may be better than this one.

    In my eyes, when something ,like this happens, it just means the horse wasn't right for you in the first place. I believe in fate... When a horse didn't work for me, but I adored it, I let it go, and said "If this is fate, this means I'll get a horse 10 times better than this, for a cheaper price".
    You know what, that exact thing happened.
    So don't feel bad, because your perfect horse is out there, waiting for you somewhere :)

    I completly agree with Candy Canes and when things like that happen this is the story I always remember

    There once was a simple farmer who lived and struggled alongside his neighbours and friends, trying to exist and fulfil a peaceful life. One day news arrived from far away, that his old loving father had died. His neighbours gathered to grieve, but the farmer simply said, “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?”

    In time relatives brought a very fine horse of great cost and fine breeding, left to the farmer by his father. All the villagers and neighbours gathered in delight with him to celebrate his good fortune, but he just said, “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?”

    One day the horse escaped into the hills and when all the farmer’s neighbours sympathized with the old man over his bad luck, the farmer replied, “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?”

    A week later the horse returned with a herd of wild horses from the hills and this time the neighbours congratulated the farmer on his good luck. His reply was, “Good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?”

    Then, when the farmer’s son was attempting to tame one of the wild horses, he fell off its back and broke his leg. Everyone thought this very bad luck. Not the farmer, whose only reaction was, “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?”

    Some weeks later the army marched into the village and conscripted every able-bodied youth they found there. When they saw the farmer’s son with his broken leg they let him off. Now was that good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?

    2005 AQHA MARE

    I'm looking at this mare, I called the owner. She was very very hesitant to let me trial her or buy her UNTIL she knew that I was friends with some people she knew. She felt uncomfortable handing her baby over to someone who she didn't know or someone she knew didn't know.
    She was very upright about her, said she was broke from the ground up. She neck reins, knows her foot commands, and she also spend 60-90 days in training. She also was sent to be cowboyied after she bucked off her daughter a year or two ago. She hasn't had any respect or riding problems sense.
    She says she is selling her because they don't have a use for her. She's to fresh for her 2-4 years old kids and needs a stronger hand. She also told me that the mare hasn't had much done to her in over a year or so due to losses in the family.
    Not the best pics, but thoughts?
