Ok guys I bought an 8 yr old paint gelding 15.2 HH about 3 months ago. He is dark chocolate and white, now looks more black and white I guess cause of weather change. I like him and has worked with him some since I have had him. Overall he is a good horse but has some things he needs worked out. For most part he is a good horse.
I over word of mouth and talking to people, came across someone who has alot of horses and I went to the website and saw one for a good price I want. Its the color I originally wanted all along. I wanted a paint and the one I have is, but this one here is the color I really wanted. Talking to the owner, it seems as if mine and theirs is almost in same category as far as the little habits they have , and needing some work or a tune up to bring them to pretty close perfection if I must say lol. The horse is around 15-16 yrs old though but looks excellent and I'm wondering if I should go for the older one since it is 8-9 yrs older than mine. I guess 8 yrs old I can look forward to having him a long long time as to this one is much older can I possibly maybe have the horse say another 10 yrs before It starts getting to where it will need senior feed and stuff.
I guess I always believe in most things are better younger , like cars not that old and less mileage, ect. Help me out guys. Also we are talking about maybe doing a swap or maybe mine and a little cash so this might be a can't miss deal for me. Also the owner mentioned the horse is used to being around other horses, I think they have alot of horses, so would it be hard to get her adjusted to being alone. My dad might get one maybe next yr and keep here but until then she will be by herself
