Thank you. I feel the same about the weight issue. I have been advised by friends and basically hounded that I need to buy a registered horse. This one is not. Basically been a pastured horse on the same property since birth. Currently, I have narrowed my search down between 2 horses and if I don't act they will both sell right underneath me. This has happens a few times so far
I am attaching pics of the other horse. This one is an 11 year old gelding 15.3 Arabian/QH. He neck reins, been wormed, understands a lunge line. Rides well, canter a little rough, not shy of cars, noises, people etc. Ground manners excellent. A little more spirited. Was owned by a cowboy church camp for 4 years then bought by a guy in the horse/trade sale business 2 weeks ago. This guys turns around a lot of horses in the area. If he cannot sell or thinks one is not sound he immediately goes to auction with it. (the place I hate here). With this guy, you can barely get out there to buy one of his horses before it is sold. I do not know the history only as what he is telling me. Not registered. I talked to 2 great vets in my area and they said that what they see today may be different tomorrow unless having extensive xray scans etc. Both of the horses I am looking at go for the same price. Please give your opinions.. I hope I am makinf sense here as it is 3AM and I cannot sleep. Thank you.
