Okay okay okay last update I think for a bit. I think I've made my decision!! I REALLY like this Suffolk. I've talked to the lady about him and hes already started under saddle he just gets confused with leg cues but hes been ridden on trails before. Besides his weight problem hes everything I"m looking for.

My instructor can help me finish him off. Hes got great ground manners minus that you cant walk him at the end of the lead rope or he tends to trail off (not that I would do that anyway?). Hes not pushy at all and seems like a very sweet guy.

I'm currently in the process of trying to schedule a day to go out and see him in person. We'll see how it goes!!! It will be sometime next week most likely!

Oh, sorry then! I did not realize that was a breed trait

In that case, he is my favorie. He seems to be the furthest along amd mature. He does sound very sweet

Lol don't feel bad I had no idea either. I asked her and it is a breed trait but she thinks its a bit more defined due to his obesity. He needs to loose at least 500lbs she says!!
I love the fact that he does seem much more mature and hes further along in his training. I dont feel so over whelmed by the thought of trying to work with him.

Poor guy apparently wears out after just 5 minutes of trotting!! O.o Lol First order of business after I roach his mane would be to work on that chub!!

OKAY! So I finally got an update from the rescue on Toccoa. He has an adoption on him. The adopter put a deposit down on him but has not completely whatever task the rescue required them to do before turning him over. They have until Monday before hes available again.
I've asked to go and see him Thursday. If he works out I'll go ahead and ask if I can also put down a deposit and if they don't go through with it, if I could be guaranteed next in line to get him (not sure if they can do that or not).

I'll let you know how it goes..

Okay well if this lady ever calls back or e-mails me back, I should be going out to see him tonight so I'll make a whole new thread for him with pics and hopefully a video or two.
