Oh also, (not sure why I didn't include this before) here is a bit of background:
Current owner says she bought him for her 8 year old son, but her son is a bit too shy to handle him. Before she bought him he was a lesson horse, a camp horse and was shown Western as well as English. She says he is a VERY good beginners horse, her son is just not assertive enough to handle him. Which, I mean, he's 8. Haha. She says he has no history of colic or founder whatsoever. He has very hard feet and does not require shoes. She also says he doesn't require sweet feed and does just fine on pasture and hay.
So, that being said, any more opinions? =)
Thanks for the responses I've already gotten. Very encouraging. And yes, I will definitely get a vet check before I buy him.
