    Horse I'm looking to buy

    Meet a beautiful 16.3 hand Thoroughbred stallion that I want to buy. He is four years old, was trained for racing but bucked his shins and was retired a year ago. He has healed completely and he has a magnificent presence to him ... You'd think he'd won the triple crown. Anyway, I thought this would be a good *final* project for myself before I left for military training next spring.

    Yes, I will geld him, and no, he is not studdy whatsoever. Although I won't let my guard down till he's grown into his lack-of-nads.

    He looks really thin, make sure we doesn't have heartworm, get him tested before you buy him!!

    Yeah! He is definitely about 300 lbs underweight. I should have mentioned that. He would not be a horse I bought and then immediately started riding... he needs some TLC. But I think he'd definitely be worth the extra effort... When the vet comes out to castrate him, I will be having her do a once-over and checking for worms will be part of it. :]

    Are you asking for a critique? If so, if you can get pictures of him on even ground that would be a good start. That's a bad pose to critique from.

    I like those legs and feet... looks like he's got some nice sturdy ones. With TLC and muscling he looks like he'll slick out wonderfully.

    It looks like he stands under in the front - but it could just be the bad picture.

    Yeah he's standing uphill... literally, lol. I'm going to take some more pictures soon. That's the one from his ad. I have some on my phone but I have no way to get them to the computer. Will post more soon!
