    Thank you, I'm just fine with waiting to do barrels if I happen to click with him. I really don't mind. My trainer already said she'd let me use her horses at some paydays!

    If the horse was that cheap, he was reasonably sound, and anything close to sane, he is probably long since sold.

    He was posted the day I contacted her, and she still has him. She's willing to hold him, and she is.

    I'm pretty much for sure getting him. She's delivering him right to my boarding stables, I'll be paying a total of $240 for him with delivery. Then I have $40 worth of feed. I'll be catching him up on his teeth, coggins, and feet over the next few weeks. My BO is letting me keep him there as soon as I get him, even though I won't have his coggins/board until a week later. The facilities are nice, $100 for full care which includes feeding 2x a day and turnout every other day. I've figured everything up, and I'll even have $100 bucks left over at the end of the month. I've gotta say, everything has fallen into place easily and I don't feel like I'm forcing anything, like with other horses. Even if he doesn't turn out to be as well trained as she said, I'm still COMPLETLEY happy with my decision! :)

    If he's healthy, sound, and has a good temperament then that's a steal.

    I got my OTTB for (an optional donation of) $160. I know I'll get yelled at for saying that I didn't get him checked by a vet, but he turned out to be...pardon...healthy as a horse. I got lucky I suppose, but I wouldn't recommend taking my fast route. Baby started out as a depressed, skinny rescue and now he's a happy, healthy guy training to be a dressage prospect.
