    I can see your point. But my concern now is for the mare she currently owns. WHY is he so thin if the owner has had him for a couple of years? Does she want this to happen to her current mare? I'm just seeing some red flags, and my instinct is saying NO!

    I didnt think about it from the perspective of the swap. We don't really know what condition he was in though when these other people got him. Two years isnt that long if the horse was in particularly bad condition. But we can't assume that so yeah maybe its a fair point when thinking about the mare going to them

    Oh god, just forget it...I'm NOT getting him anyways! *sighs*

    I will be trading Chava for a gelding though. And perhaps I got
    My story mixed up, but oh well......ugh.

    I know I appreciate all the advice, I'm not upset...just frustrated
    Because I thought I found something good, I guess I'll have
    To keep looking and the right gelding will come along.

    ... and you may have. What you got on the forum is a lot of advise but we can't possibly know all the circumstances. This just may be the horse you've been looking for - just go into it with a critical attitude. Forget what he wants for his horse - offer him what you think he's worth but only after you do the proper inspection and called his vet.

    If possible I would sell your horse outright but if you need to make a trade, do it with money coming your way not the other way around.

    Have you tried selling your mare outright? That may be the better way to go. I have found that trading rarely (but not never) work out so that both parties are completely happy. That way you find the perfect home for her, and you can then get the perfect gelding for yourself. He may be the perfect gelding for you. I just wouldn't trade my horse and put her in that situation. I would still get a vet check though.
