Okay, so I know I said I didn't want a Thoroughbred but.....
There is a girl at my barn that had 2 OTTB's at another farm that she got from a friend that couldn't take care of them and since I really wanted another horse, one that was a lot calmer than Donna, she said I could choose between her two TB's. The one is a really cute mare but she was too high sprung for me so I tried the gelding and fell in love! Haha He is the CALMEST TB I have ever met and he has a great personality too. He is 7 years old and about 16.2hh.
My only problem is that he keeps going lame. But I am starting to think he is faking it sometimes. One day he will move perfectly fine and the next day he will be limping really bad. His hooves were like completely flat so I have been putting Turpentine on them, farrier told me to, to help them grow and it is helping. Also, when I feel up and down his legs he doesn't act like anything is sore and nothing feels warm. I clean out his hooves before I ride too, but we will see what happens. I was also told he has never had any injuries during or after his racing career.
Let me know what you think of him please! **not all of the pictures are of me riding him, im the one with the purple shirt**Here is his registry stuff.... Thunder Angel Horse Pedigree I think his dad and grand dad are just gorgeous if you look at the pictures on there!!!
