Hey guys, this is kind of a continuation of a thread from here:
A horse I'm thinking of buying
I went to the guys house and took a picture of her legs last night, unfortunately there wasn't much room to get any good conformation shots. He is bringing her to the barn on Friday. My trainer is testing her then, I will get some movement videos of her and some good conformation shots.
Quick recap, she is $300 and I would like to buy her. The place she was bred from didn't race her because her knees were underdeveloped and she was tied in at the knee. I understand not wanting to spend the money to train and race a horse you have no plans of breeding.
My question is, are her knees bad enough to keep me from purchasing her? My plans for her are mostly to trail ride, but there are some jumps on the trails we go on. Nothing huge, just some logs and things like that. I'm also interested in dressage.
I know this picture isn't a lot to go on, thank you so much to anyone that donates any time to helping me with this.
Also, she is pigeon toed in the front and her feet bother me. Is this something that can be worked on with proper trimming? The guy that currently owns her is incredibly nice, but he trims all of his horses feet and I'm fairly certain he has never had any kind of training. He said he just keeps them ground down?
I know she is filthy and this is a poor picture, thank you to anyone that has the patience to help me! Lol
