What is going on with the bulge on his head? Is it a medical problem that needs to be looked into or an old injury maybe? Also, how advanced is the arthritis? His hooves are really underrun. That is not good, but can be fixed. His legs look really uncomfortable in the position that they are in because his hooves are so underrun. Look at the bend in his pasterns, they are really bent! He is a good looking horse overall, he looks pretty healthy except for his hooves and whatever that may be on his head.

the bump is an old race injury. Its a calcification. The arthritus isnt bad. It doesnt have to be treated right now but in about 2 years it will have to be treated.

he's a beautiful horse but I would not buy him. I wouldnt wasnt to treat a horse for arthritus even if it is in two years. If you wanted to sale him when you had to treat it arthritus it would be near imposible

If he has althrits, at the age 15, there will be problems. And usually when they say 'althritis' it is worse than it actually is. They are probably just trying to get rid of him. Personally, I would never buy a horse with althritis.

I'm not so good at horse buying advice but I'll try. I see a bump on his head, and his feet look odd. He sure is beautiful though! I would get a vet to check him over before you buy him though. The head might not affect him, theres a horse at my riding barn with a bump on her head and it doesnt seem to bother her too much. I'm not sure about the artheritis if your going to to be doing only light riding it might no be too bad.

Ask a mare, tell a gelding, and discuss it with a stallion.

I would buy with arthritis. Have your vet come look at him if he hasnt already and see how bad it is. If your only using him for flatwork, I think he would be fine. Riding is good for older horses or horses with arthritis if a vet thinks they can handle it.
I think he is a very cute boy.

I agree with Spastic on the issue of the arthritis. If you are going to purchase him, have vet check him to see just how serious it is. Like Spastic said, if you are only using him for flat work, then it can actually be beneficially to him. I would however think about getting him going on a joint supplement if he is not already. Overall though, he is a cute boy.
