Hi, I'm new here and I've been emailing someone about a horse I'm interested in buying. I'm only 13 and I don't really know about all the health stuff. I'm going to get him vet checked before I buy, but anyway.
He is a 2006 thorughbred gelding. 16-16.2 hh. been emailing for a while until he recently got his foot caught in the fence and pulled his show. The vet looked at it and took some Xrays she sent them to me. She says the coffin bone is close to the sole. She says he would be okay in a longer hoof wth a show but, my parents already don't want a horse, and I don't want this to turn into a financial disaster in the future. I would post the pictures but they are copyrighted and it will now allow me to take them. But I'm stuck, because this horse is absolutely perfect for me aside from this problem. She says he will always have sesitive feet and they should be treated with respect, not horse you would want to gallop over stones, etc.
I'm really unsure of what to do, but I want him so badly. Please help.
