I'm so glad I took a 2nd look! (image heavy)

I don't know who actually read one of my many "critique these possible buys!" threads, but one had talked about a 5 yo. Grade Paint gelding I went to look at. When I went to see him, it was pouring rain, he had been at his new house for less than 2 weeks...anyway, he would not stand still, was dancing around everywhere, so tense he was quaking, and for both his owner and I (under saddle) kept spooking, wanting to back up, dancing around, we could only walk because it was so muddy and he was acting up...I didn't want to rule him out though, because I could tell the circumstances were pretty crappy for him, and he was gorgeous. His owner also swore he was never like that, and I did want to believe her.

I went back out this morning, and am so glad I did. I saw him from start to finish, tacked him up myself (he stood there with no one holding his lead rope), watched his owner take him through w/t/c and over a tiny little jump, and then rode him myself. Sold :) If all goes accordingly, he'll be my new baby. I can't buy him outright yet, but I am going to do a free lease situation (off farm at the boarding facility nearest my house) and then hopefully will buy him or do a lease-to-buy. I still have some i's to dot and t's to cross (and am nervous something will fall through). His owner will loan me everything she has for him, which is awesome.

He's very quiet on the ground, does require a good amount of leg under saddle, has a nice headset (I think) and I think he's going to look lovely English.

Here's Titus! Let me know what you think.

And these are me just loving on him:

Thanks all! I'm really excited!

And, I think I said this before but that's NOT me riding him. I'm the short, grey haired girl in the last few photos.

WOW! He sure is pretty! Really like him. He has a very fancy head, just to die for.

I LOVE the last picture of the two of you together. You look so happy. I think he will look pretty darn stunning in an english saddle. I can't wait to see some pictures of you riding him english!
