Here are a few pictures of Chip:
He's in good health. He's kept on 5 - 6 acres with a couple of other horses. It's very, very dry here, and the pasture consisted of grass (very dry grass, I must add!) He's turned out pretty much all day and night long. I was thinking they could be sand cracks, due to the fact that it's so dry. But, I don't know.
I would use him for trail riding. No showing or gaming, or anything like that. Just riding around out in the country (I live in a rural area) by myself, and going on a few organized trail rides every now and then.
I know his current owner said that the gal she purchased him from is the one who foaled him, and had him for his whole life (up until this spring). The gal that foaled him, also currently owns his dam too.
It looks like whoever her farrier is, does a crappy job (at least, that's how it looks to me anyhow. I'm no expert, but that shoe job looks pretty bad......big nail heads sticking out/not filed level, very rough rasping on the hooves, etc.)
I just really, really liked this horse...I fell in love, I guess you could say. But, wouldn't you know it....the horse I fall in love with would be PERFECT for me in every way, except he has crappy feet :( Just my luck....
