    Genie! :D

    Well, a while ago, I posted pics of a horse I was looking at, Twitty, and mentioned how I was afraid that he'd be sold before I could buy him... Well, he's sold. -.- BUT my trainer called me this morning telling me about her gelding, Genie, who I've known since he was born, too, and she was saying how they can't find a home for him, etc, etc. and asked if I wanted him for $5000 - $6000 (he's listed as $20,000) I was in shock. I asked why so little? And she said her sister (Genie's owner) wants to be able to see him from time to time and likes me a lot and said if I like him. . . So I was about ready to jump out of my skin! I was SOOOOO excited!!! AND whats better, is Genie's a Saddlebred!! I have always ridden and loved saddlebreds, but never thought I could afford one and now I'm looking at one for close to nothing! I rode him today (on friday the thirteenth, no less) and he'd been inside all day and its cold and raining. I was expecting a monster. He was VERY forward and fresh but no misbehaving! My trainer told me a LONG time ago, when I first rode him that you either love him or hate him, that's just his personality. Annnnnd, I love him! He is very in-your-face friendly and can be mouthy and fidgetty but he is always sweet and is a pleasure to ride. I like him a lot. <3

    As a two year old a LONG time ago:

    These pics don't really do him justice. ^^ If I do get him, I may grow his forelock out a lot. Most of these pics are from march, but his forelock has been shaved quite a bit, so I'd like to see it grown out.

    Here's two from today taken with my phone's crappy camera. >< I couldn't get good pics of him cause I was either on him, holding him or holding another horse. Lol

    His Registered name is 'Paradocs Genie' and he's by 'Kabuki' and out of 'Salute Sorceress' (THE MOST EVIL MARE I HAVE EVER MET) - his mommy broke his jaw three times before he was weened. O.o

    He's also 16 something hands and 9 years old and does saddleseat, trails, western, hunt seat, jumping, etc. He's really nice

    His face, to me, looks very goofy kinda like a puppy. :)

    OH and his sire is drop dead gorgeous.

    You can adopt/ buy a saddlebred from the track for almost nothing, but getting one with good training is a different story.

    Around here they're not hard to come buy (Im close to 3 different racetracks), but not to many people ride gated breeds here, so you don't see them much. He's pretty cute. But it looks like you have the grip of death on his reins in the first two photos.

    Saddlebreds race? Or do you mean Standardbreds?

    OP - He's lovely! I hope it works out for you! You two look very good together.

    He has such a sweet face and you can't beat the deal you got on him Its nice to know that the original owner thought enough of him to want him to go to a good home and to see him again. That's always a good sign.

    He is so handsome! I thought English reins were supposed to be tight? I haven't heard of Saddlebreds racing either, unless they pull a cart or something?
