So.. I got new horses...

Today, I decided to go to the Horse Auction in grunthal, and I only swear to god, wanted to go look.
Well.. we ended up bring a gelding ( I bought him with my own money, so he is mine) and my dad got a new little 6 month old filly.

So ill say about my new gelding boy.

I walked to the end of the aisle and saw this BIG skinny white horse, gorgous even though very very skinny, and I knew right away that he was going to be bought by a kill buyer, and I fell in love with him, he's such a gentleman.
So anyways I showed him to my friends for there opinions and my dad, I really did not want him to goto the meat, I knew noone was going to by him, there were people who wouldnt even give him a glance, but I found myself consistantly attracted to his pen.
Well when it was time for bidding I sat close to watch the kill buyers and so I can see the horses, he was one of the first horses that came in and like I knew it noone bid on him and the meat buyers got him.
I was crying so much, my friend was trying to talk to me but I couldnt handle it I was walking back and forth to his pen, and my friend helped me find out the kill buyer who had bid on him.
Close to the end, I talked my dad into letting me get him, and I went and talked to the kill buyer and talked to him, they bought him for $70 and I bought him off of them for $90.
So I got to bring him home and he is so great ! He completely respects your space, stands tied, loads onto the trailer, and I wonder if he is broke, my dad says there are saddle pad marks on him so its a possibility, he has shoes on and my farrier took a look at him saw no leg problems, said it looks like his feet where just done.
I wont start trying him till he gains alot more weight, my poor boy.
But I am so happy I got him, my dad think's he is about 14-15 years old, its more than noticable that he is a pretty old horse !

And my dad ended up buying a little 6 month old filly named Sunfire from our farrier's daughter, she is awesome!!

So onto photos :)

( im just so happy, he is HUGE and super tall, I don't know what breed he is, my farrier thinks he is a very large quarter horse, but im happy because he isnt going to be used for human consumption in europe (thats were he was going to end up going.. ) and he is the first horse I bought with my own money !

It's great that you were able to buy him! I think that with some more fat and muscling he's going to be quite the looker :).

^ Thank you :) Anrz, I totally agree, I think he might be a QH X TB ?
I still need a name for him though, maybe Indigo ?

He is so cute and will be quite the looker when he gets some weight on him. I think Indigo suits him well! :)

Congrats! I think you have yourself a diamond in the rough!!

I have to say though, I nearly had a heart attack when I saw how he's tied... he could easily put a leg over the rope or spook and pull back - when they're tied that low, they can break their necks. I don't want your absolutely darling new horse to get hurt!

Good luck! I'd love to see updates in a few weeks with some weight on.

I know, my farrier tied him up again, I had him tied up higher, but he wanted his lead rope back, and I asked him don't you think that he has abit too much rope ? And he said... oh noo nooo and so I just was like well ... alright than.
Im hoping he will gain lot more wieght :) just going to take some time.
