    Oh, and the capped knee occured in March of 2010 by kicking a stall wall where there was a mare. She doesn't like other mares in stalls next to her, but she's fine with them in the pasture. The vet, Dr. Arden Wiley, (she gave me his phone number) gave him Bute and Dexamentnasone in an IV injection to help with it in March. It should be gone soon, and if it isn't, we should call her and Dr. Wiley.

    We're trailering her to Bali's (my mom's boyfriend) this saturday around noon, and staying the weekend down at his house so I can lunge and ride my perdy Molly:).

    Lindsay gave me the registration papers and had my mom sign a proof of purchase contract (we each got a copy of that). The registration papers say:

    My immediate reaction to the series of photos was why on earth are they riding her western? She absolutely moves like a hunter or sport horse, there's nothing about her that suggests a western horse to me. You have to wonder why they're not marketing her in a discipline more suited to her breeding and conformation.

    Second, equinophile does have a good eye; her left hock and possibly her right look capped. Mostly a blemish in a pleasure or trail horse, considered an unsoundness for certain performance horses, but the signifigance for you is that they are frequently caused by kicking in the stall.

    Third, if she was appraised at $7500., who appraised her and why? Appraised for insurance? Appraised as a performance prospect? Or appraised as a broodmare?

    So, she may be a nice horse, she may even be your perfect next horse, but, please - proceed with caution. There are several things about her description that give experienced horsepeople pause.

    Sometimes a cheap horse is the most expensive horse you'll ever own.

    Yes, I know, I've been down the route of buying a cheap, horrid horse. But I've also bought spectacular horses for prices similar to what I'm paying for this one. The best horse I've ever owned, Arthur, I bought for only $900 18 years ago. He is still to this day an incredible 22, 23.....yr old, somewhere around there. Best, calmest but spunky, gelding I've ever owned.

    Like I said, Molly does not like mares in stalls next to hers. I watched her in the pasture with the same mare she kicked at while they were stalled, and they were grazing together, showing NO sign of dislike. And I don't have any mares except for my mini, who we're selling as a breeding pair with my stally.
