I went to see the previous horse I posted (Another possible buy? Critique please :)) and unfortunately I couldn't get the price I wanted and he wasn't worth what they were offering. From now on, I'm going to stick to prices I know I can afford from the bat because it's really disappointing otherwise :(.
Here's my next prospect:
16.2HH 4 y/o TB. Off the track due to lack of winning, not injury, clean legs and no vices. He's $1000. The pictures are outdated and he's just off the track and apparently he doesn't look quite so "racefit" currently. He's broke to ride, WTC and a lovely long stride. He would be a hunter/jumper prospect.
What do you think? I'm not very good at critiquing, so all I can say is he's got some mighty long legs!
