I got a horse for free too, a Bashkir Curly gelding who is seven years old, strong in both wind and limb and registered to boot. He just wasnt worth the money that the girl put into him for training because of his attitude problem. He is well bred (comes from foundation bloodlines) but he is a gelding, so that is worthless so he is unable to breed. It just proves that even horses that are in better shape and registered can't find homes nowadays, no matter what the price sometimes. Go to auctions...it will break your heart.
