Vet said she's okay and that the capped hock will go away within a few months, and that it shouldn't impair her movements. Sound everywhere else.
Today I walk and trotted her, then decided to try out her canter (yes, the one that needs a ton of work) and she tried to take me for a gallop. I stopped her within a few seconds and got her back down to a relaxed trot, but that canter is going to need some work. Then I tried jumping her. It was her first time being jumped under saddle, usually she's only lunged over jumps. I trotted her up to it, she took a giant leap, and tried to canter off, but I kept her at a trot and jumped her over it a few more times until I was confident she had learned not to run off after the jump. It was only about a foot and a half high, and she cleared it by a ton every time! :o
While I was cooling her down, my mom, her boyfriend, and the owner discussed the price. We offered them $750 because I have to pay for the horse, and she said she couldn't go that low and that we should call her tomorrow with our decision. We've decided we're going to tell her we'll take her this week for $850, we'll trailer her with my mom's boyfriend's gooseneck to his barn and keep her there until we can rehome my Paint Clydesdale gelding.
The other thing is....she chews on her bit. CONSTANTLY. They used a full cheek snaffle with this kind of bridle: http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/cv/te/e...es-800X800.jpg
They said that bridle helped hold her mouth shut so she didn't play with her bit as much. I have just a regular English bridle with a noseband and an eggbutt....I also have a 6 1/2 inch D-Ring, another eggbutt, and a loose ring snaffle. I'm not sure which is suitable....I'm hoping my new eggbutt because I just spent $20 on that thing for my other gelding lol.
