    Strider: The Impluse Buy/Auction House Foundation QH Colt

    So, long story short, I'm a bit of a sucker and the auction *really* wasn't going well for any horse, let alone a set of miserable looking 2 year olds...Sooo I bought one. He went for 40 bucks, and his companion for a whole 10. To my eye, he looked kinda rough. I'll be working on getting him to look healthy again, so I figured some pix where in order.

    I took these today at the breeder's house, where I dropped off a couple bales of hay and some grain for him to tide him over the few days he may be there until I get his Coggins results:

    And can you see the dip around his spine?

    I wouldn't have guessed his age as two - maybe a year at best. Poor guy. Hope everything works out for both you and him.

    Exactly what I thought too. Please post pics so we can see how he is doing in the next little while.

    I will update when we move him. Just got a text from the breeder. I left her money for the farrier yesterday, and she says he just got trimmed.

    Poor little guy, I'm so glad you're giving him a much better chance than he had. I think, the first time I had the vet check him over, I'd have him look at his teeth and try to guess an age. He doesn't appear to be in bad enough shape to have stunted his growth that much.

    Also, it might be possible that he was a late foal, so while he might actually be "2" according to some standards (like in AQHA and the Jockey club, all horses turn 1 on January 1, even if they were born in October), he may still be physically closer to a yearling.

    smrobs, nothing would make me happier. Ill text the breeder right now and see if she can't clear up a both month and year. Either way, asking the vet to double check!

    Yeah I would be interested to know his birthday, he's a tiny little guy. Doesn't look like a 2 year old. He's cute though. He could probably be a looker after some good TLC

    She checked her records and he is a proper 2, born 5/11/11. Same month as my baby girl, who looks like a real horse while this colt just... doesn't. Ill get a weight from the vet when we get there in 3 hours.

    Dang. Was hoping she was wrong on age. Keep us updated on what vet has to say & his progress. Bless you for taking him on Demon.
