I also saw this horse advertised as I live in the same area. While he looks like a nice horse in pictures, my gut feeling was that this would not be a good purchase. He is cute, but something about the ad just doesn't give me confidence in this horse. I agree with others that you should proceed with caution. Training a difficult horse can be frustrating, expensive, and dangerous. There are lots of great horses out there that would potentially be much less hassle. Even if you like him as a pasture ornament, keep in mind he will still be work and expense. Even pasture horses need regular handling and when they become unruly, it can be dangerous to you, the horse and other pasture-mates. A vet evaluation along with a critical evaluation from a trusted trainer is a must in this case. Just my 2 cents worth.
