Tiny, after you said that about her white hind leg (which is her left, BTW), I rewatched the video and I agree. There's something odd about the way it moves. Like she lifts it higher than the other when she's trotting.

Just curious, Eliz...are they selling the mare and foal as a package or just the mare?

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

I am home on dial up weekends and cannot see the video.

I will say that a horse with one hind leg white often appears to move oddly due to the optical illusion caused by the leg being white. Not saying that is the case here.. just saying it. TinyLiny usually has a good read on a horse so I am commenting this way as something to think on until I can see the video when I am sitting in front of a faster internet connection.

From what I see in the stills, I like her quite a bit. That being siad, the photographs are all off center which can truly improve the looks of the horse.

I will be interested in what the OP says when she sees the horse in person. Remember, the owner is selling her as a brood mare claiming she has no time to bring her along. That is a common thing to say if there is a problem and no one can come back later and say, "You sold me a bill of goods and a lame horse." For broodmare the horse does not need to be leg sound, only reproductively sound. Sooo... anyone buying her for a brood mare would have her checked reproductively only. Anyone wanting to buy her for a working discipline would be well advised to get a thorough (and therefore expensive) Pre Purchase Exam based on the sales representation.

OK. Just watched the vidieo and there is no lameness evident and I concentreated on both hind feet and they do not move differently. It is as I suspected.. an illusion created by the near hind being white.

I would go and look at this horse paying special attention to her feet and if she is good in person (looks, disposition, etc.), do a PPE and buy her if she is what you want.

White markings can really trick one's eye and yes, it can make a horse appear lame. Thus usually happens with odd markings, such as 3 whites, or just one.

She is very beautiful!!!

I think since she is Oldenburg approved if you bred her to an oldenburg or a hanoverian (i think) that the resulting foal can be registered Oldenburg (not Hano)

Um, I have one of those. Who knew TBs could be easy keepers?

Lol fat TBs are always a pleasant surprise!

I'm going to look at her Saturday.

Piaffe- I don't plan on breeding her, but it is definitely more tempting knowing she is Oldenburg approved. So many gorgeous studs! Drool..........

She is very classy looking. She looks to have a decent horseonality. I'd at least look at her and be ready with a vet for a PPE just in case she decided to climb in the trailer LOL
