Never meant he should be shiny, or fat, or perfect. I would never suggest fat, I believe 'undermuscled' was the term I used. As for shiny, a dull coat can indicate a lack of overall health and something that will improve with work and feed.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Lots of work and lots of love and you will have a partner for life! I also agree that he has such a sweet face! I don't guess all ottb are stir crazy and wild, although I haven't seen too many that arent, but I haven't been around a lot of TB to really make a decent opinion really. Good luck with him! And free is always nice! He does seem to have nice legs though,and I really like his mane,he just looks like an overall sweet,level headed horse. Have fun!!

He looks pretty good for a free horse and all the immediate off the track stuff is already done. With OTTBs the most important things are soundness and personality. If you've got that, then you can work with the rest. His conformation isn't stellar but there's nothing horrible about it. He has a nice slope to his shoulder... once you get him comfortably moving out, he may be a nice mover. And can you really turn away a sweet face like that? I love solid bays. He reminds me a bit of my last OTTB (who turned out to be one of the best horses I've had the pleasure to own). Good luck, I'd love to see him next year after good work and feed.

Yep, he's sound and sweet. So I'm hoping he'll turn out sort of okay.

Anyone else?

He seems really nice. I think you made a great choice with him. It's also good that he has a nice soft mouth, usually thoroughbreds off the track are opposite and try to run into your hands.

The name is also just too adorable....Moon Bean. Sounds alot like Moon Beam.

As soon as you can, add some more photo's. Would love to see better ones, and some nice ones of his face too.

Looks decent enough very honest looking face and big ears which are a sign of honsty to. Looks like you cdid good with him.
He is in sure need of a worm dose though he is very very dull

To give a horse your heart guarantees a love that will last forever undamageable
