So, to trade or not to trade?

Ok, this horse is a finished barrel and pole horse, he is a handsome red roan and the owner has never gone home without a check. He is 15.3 hands. Heres the thing, he is 20 years old . He does not look or act his age (at least thats what the owner says) she said he runs like he is 10. Now he would be great for me to get going on as he is a finished barrel horse, broke to death, been hauled every were, but with him being 20 i could probably get 5 years at the most, and that is just not really a long time. So im at a loss, on one hand he would be great for me to learn on and really get to going on the other hand he is old and probably wont be going a whole hec of a lot longer. She gave me some pics but there not good for conformation wise, but ill show them to you anyways then ill wait for the confo pics. I want to know if you think this would be wise for me to trade, she wants to trade for duchess who is 7 years old.

she says the reason she is selling him is that he drops a gear coming out of every barrel and it kills her back........

I dont know, but I think, 20 years old, he had the best time of his life I think so?

( I dont know anything about barrel horses, but I know about dressage horses and there is 20 old )

anny, i dont know, maybe keep him or maybe he would be good for little kids to do pe-wee rodeo with, and i could try and sell him as a pe-wee rodeo horse???? I dont know, i know at this age that a lot of horses and in there prime, but for barrel horses i think at 20 they should probably be slowing down, i think (key word I THINK) that at 15-18 a barrel horse is in there prime after that, they should probably start looking towards retirement.... so again im at a loss lol.

I think he's a little old personally to hve many years left for a demanding sport like barrel racing

Whatever you decide, PPE is a big must in this case
