Meet Victory Meadows aka Vicor new pony! :-D

Hello everyone!

I am one of the refugees and I wanted to share the news and photos of my sister's new horse, Vicor. I was a little reluctant to post about him at first afraid of being ridiculed(sp?) about getting a new horse so soon after Hope's death. But Hope's passing left us open to take in another horse in need, and Vicor was in need of a new home.

Info about Vicor:
He is a 16+hh 3yr old off the track thoroughbred that only raced once. He injured his knee 6 months ago and even after the vet gave the all clear for him to go back into race training his owner decided she'd rather he went to a pleasure home then push him as a race horse.
I went with my sister to see him yesterday. We watched him on the hot walker, the lungeline then his owner rode him first. She had him w/t/c in both directions. He carries himself surpisingly well for a gangly 3yr old. I then hopped on him, first time on a horse in over 2weeks due to my back injury but he barely flinched at my weight. He was extremely responsive and relaxed. When her weanlings started tearing around in the paddock next to us he just looked at them. No spook. I only walked around 2x and trotted a lap before I had to dismount so not to hurt my back.
He is going to be work, but since Gracie's recent decision to be a cart horse rather then my dressage pony, we're hoping Vicor will be able to do some low level stuff with me.
PLEASE feel free to critique his confermation! I'd love to here other peoples view on his build keep in mind he still has at least 2 more years of growing to do!
Here are links to his photos:
(I didn't know if you could directly put up photos here so I posted direct links AND image codes)

In Loving memory of Leah the STB and Hope the Donkey. Hope to see you over the rainbow.
