OK-here is prospect #3, so far the Paint and the Appaloosa (that looked like an Arabian) are out-I just did not feel right about them. Remember-looking for a lower level Dressage horse that is safe, sane, sound, and preferably barefoot.
What do you think about this guy-13 years old-and what do you think he is? (I know-I just want to see what people pick out.)
Nope! He is 1/2 QH and 1/2 Trakehner! If you could see him move you can see it-lofty floaty trot. The only issues-look closely at his neck, he has a big dent in the front that no one can explain-may have been a foal injury-does not seem to bother him. He is missing one top front tooth. He is a light cribber and somewhat scared of fireworks-they make him pacey nervous. Otherwise he seems sweet, he is barefoot with great feet and legs, is 13 year old, has been to shows, has a low maintenance gorgeous copper shiny coat, and the price is very right. He is however 3.5 hours away-which means I need to do my homework before I bring him all the way here. I am trying to find a Vet to do a PPE there and give me a full report. I do not think my trainer who has the trailer would be to happy to drive there and back and come home with no horse.
