I'm not actively looking for a horse right now, as I can't afford board (it's ridiculous in my area) at the moment. But I'm always browsing around and eyeing up what's out there. Came across this guy in this weeks Camelot crop and I think I fell in love. I don't know what it is about him but something just draws me in, so just for kicks, what do you guys think? If I decide it's really worth it, it's possible that my mother's boyfriend may fund me for a while
"#431 - Bay Gelding, approx. 16.1 hh or so. 3 yrs old. Was selling 100% sound. "no crib, no weave". . .$300.00"
He's quite obviously underweight, and the "no crib, no weave" thing concerns me a little. It seems very odd for that to be pretty much the only information provided.
I realize it's hard to tell much conformationally from this picture, but working with what we have the only thing that REALLY stands out to me is his front left... Could be just the way he's standing though? His back legs look a little off too, but I can't really tell.
Thank you in advance, I just really either need someone to tell me I should really go for it, or it's an awful idea and not worth it at the moment.
Also, when I am actively looking for a horse, I will still be looking at auction horses. I'm looking for a hidden gem that has good potential. Preferably one unbroke or very green... a horse that hasn't had the chance to messed up by bad training.
