Sorry but I have seen this video before elsewhere and it was determined he was unsound. I remember the huge, huge, huge problem with the front leg swinging way, way out. It was more than winging/paddling as it comes from much farther up the leg.

This horse as he stands is worth about $50.00 and is auction material.

Please RUN from this horse. I am afraid that the most humane thing for this beautiful animal is to put him down. He looks to be in a whole lot of pain. His shoulder movement is awful (right side looks worse). His hips make me hurt when I watch him move. His back legs seem to have too much joint laxity. I am afraid that you could throw tons of money at this horse and still end up with a lame horse who is in a boatload of pain.

You know, the seller must know that this horse has problems. I cannot imagine any other reason why the seller would be wiling to loose so much money on this horse.

Poor, sad horse.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

I do see quite a bit of soreness (right front end?) in that video. Though he is lovely to look at. :[ so sad.

Get used to it. Unfortunately honest people in the horse world aren't as common as anyone would like.

I agree with the other though, he looks very, very ouchy. Keep looking.

I'm sorry. :[ There's just something about the way he's swinging his legs out, and the way his shoulder moves... he doesn't look comfortable. :/

I'm sorry that he may not work out for you.

That horse looks like it's in so much pain. Looks like right front mostly to me, but definitely an overall soreness going on. Maybe he's just got a bad shoe job? It's a good looking horse. That's just so sad.

Alright, I'm sure you noticed how he's swinging his body and his gaits are just.. so bad. I thought he was trotting when he was loping. The owner is sure to know the problems.
If I were you and I really liked this horse I might buy him as a project, just because I knew the owner wasn't getting him help & he needed it. But in the end I'm pretty sure he'll need to be PTS so I'd just leave the offer alone.

I agree with everyone else that it is safe to call that horse lame. The entire video he just looks completely uncomfortable and off. It is unfortunate that this how they were trying to sell him to you, but keep in mind there are lots of horses out there who are for sale as well as sound. Keep looking, I am sure you will find one that works well for you.
