    I'd give you a lot for him, but you wouldn't take it. You'd be a fool to do so. He's lovely and you are a delightful pair!

    Shoot, some spoiled little kids parents might pay $25,000 for him. LoL. He's worth what someone will pay.

    He toes out slightly, but that's it. He's had splints but I had them frozen over a year ago and they should never bother him again. He's also happy barefoot or in shoes so he's honestly such an easy keeper. He just lives outside 24/7 and gets his feed which consists of high fat high fibre and vitamins :)

    How easy he on course for a beginner?

    He is adorable and I Love that you love him! :) I would agree, around here you could start around 10k but definitely ask more with a nice record. If you can get him winning around 4"? About 30k is closer to a price in the h/j world, but I have found that h/j horses for wahtever reason tend to be a little higher priced then eventing horses.
    I actually just had my friend ride him the other day and he took her over some training level xc fences with an issue and she's currently at entry level (given that she was screaming the whole time and Whin didn't even bat an eyelash at anything she did haha) and he's a total point and shoot over jumps with anyone. He changes over fences and you need to push him for a flying change depending on the situation, he's usually just auto changing over fences so I don't really feel the need to school flying changes all the time :) Thank you for your kind words, he is wonderful and he knows it too! And he just completed his second year of showing. I should have mentioned that he's a total pro when he goes off property, just chills and the trailer with some hay. We parked next to a spooky arab and Whin was as relaxed as anything while our neighbors horse was prancing around!

    Animals like this one just don't have a price. He really is paying you back for taking him in and giving him a chance, isn't he?
    Thank you so much! He certainly is unique looking, he always catches eyes which is another reason why he makes such a good show horse! He really tries his heart out, not a mean bone in his body! I'm really just paying him back for all he's done for me and continues to do for me- I went through a very hard time and Whin was the only one there for me, and continues to keep me strong and clean. We really kind of saved each other!

    When I go out to see him tomorrow I'll get some up to date conformation photos :) Thank you very much!
