He looks like a pretty nice horse to me. Yeah, he is toed out in the back and maybe a little in the front but that is not really uncommon for QH these days. He looks like he is really standing under himself on the front and that could indicate pain. I would definitely get a vet check prior to purchase. As for the price, in my area, that would actually be considered pretty high. He doesn't neck rein, has no papers (none that you can probably get anyway) and has no show experience. Down here, that equals a very low price tag even if he is BROKE. All in all, I like him and he just has a really sweet laid back look. Let us know how he does and what you decide.
do you know how long he's been with his current owner? |
From what you've written, it sounds like its kind of recent.
I agree that he probably doesn't clip. And she just doesn't want to tell you.
I agree with getting a vet check.
Even if he doesnt clip its no big deal, I will just have to try and teach him to clip..he would be used as my 4-h horse though.
| Even though the owner said he was vet checked recently, I would highly recommend getting another one... you don't know for sure that it was funding that was cut that was the deciding factor... just thought I'd point that out. |
He's cute, worth a look if you're willing to drive out there!!
