I actually bought this horse from the seller in New Mexico last week. I bought with my heart and not my head I paid the full $400 which she was claiming was an adoption fee but he was more of a rescue. I bought him because he looks like he could be the son of my quarab palomino mare that passed in 2005 and we'll because this horse really needed someone to help him. The seller was indeed a little flaky she claimed she was not just trying to sell him to anybody to turn a profit I just know he was in the herd of five other horses and was the second to the last in the pecking order.
Unfortunately I was not able to get a vet out there at the time of purchase for a check. He's in need of a lot of love and his feet are in deplorable condition.
I'm having a farrier come out this week to work on his feet, i'm hoping that the damage can be undone. He has a thick winter coat and looks nothing like the pictures online. I received the paperwork to register him and I'm hoping there's nothing seriously wrong with him.
The seller claims she received him for $480 from a breeder with over 90 horses on her ranch that she cannot afford. She was just breeding for profit.
He's not broke to ride at all but he ties and loaded onto the trailer excellently he also lifts all his feet for the farrier and has basic halter cues down. He is an absolute sweetheart, he followed everyone around like a puppy and even let my daughter walk up to him without being spooky.
They told me they thought he was six years old upon looking at the paperwork he's not even 5. He's very malnourished with very little muscle tone and a very narrow chest and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that with basic care and groceries he will fill out nicely.
Here's a picture I took of him last weekend as you can see he needs lots of work any comments would be appreciated since I haven't had a horse in almost a decade.
