Pre-Purchase vet inspection results..

Well, he isn't 3.5...lmao. He's 5. Pretty large discrepancy, but I actually am happy to know he is older than 3.. When I looked in his mouth when I first met him, I did not think I was looking at the mouth of a 3 year old, but the owner was so adamant that he was I second guessed myself.

His teeth are fine. His legs, heart, eyes, lungs etc are great. The vet said he has "a little more fluid in his stifle than I like, but I am nit-picking." So, he stretched all of his legs and then had his assistant trot him in circles and in straight lines. He said he did not respond to the flexing. He needs a trim on his feet, which I could see. (It's been 8 weeks since his last trim). When the current owner walked away, my vet recommended that I use another farrier in a round-about way. He did not respond to the hoof sensitivity test.

Overall, it was a good exam. But what I am most impressed Tucker's demeanor. I was a little concerned how he would handle his temp being taken, mouth being forced open, hooves squeezed..etc. but he took it like a champ and behaved like a complete gentleman. Mind you this horse is very very green and has not been handled much for 6 months. So definitely a positive regarding his attitude.

So..I think I am going to move forward tomorrow morning and pay for him, and sign the bill of sale.
