We've purchased a few...it was not a great experience.
One mare was not sound without shoes, had navicular. And was pregnant. Surprise!!! Super super sweet mare though. Was a very nice girl. Could be skittish, but I did like her personality.
Other one was a decent horse, hard to catch, but I liked him.
1 horse was insanely sick within 1 week of being home. Pneunomonia.
1 horse was very underweight. Once up in weight, was incredibly aggressive.
And last but not least, a 3 year old, come to find out was only 2. Decent little filly, had some major training issues, incredibly green.......which was not disclosed.....But turned out great with consistent training.
So....Not great experiences. I saw many drugged horses. Dishonest people. Skinny horses. Horses with terrible attitudes.
You really have to know what your looking for, get a second/third opinion from horse people you trust. And even then, be prepared to be duped. You might get a diamond in the rough, or you might be stuck with a bad egg... Posted via Mobile Device
