Hmmmm what I saw was not necessarily a horse over at the knee (I think in The pic he was just about to move forward, exaserbating the look of the knee),
However I do see a horse that's pretty fresh.....seen as he's finished racing he probably hasn't been worked for a while and is still receiving his daily ration of grain.....it can nly take one day without work for a racehorse to get like this....and this is mild to say the least
Im a big believer in this saying:
'it costs just as much to feed a bad horse as it does a good horse'
You either want to dump your money into a so-so animal or else you want to dump it into a horse who is worth your while.
Attitude is paramount with any horse, he could be as ugly as sin, but be the best horse you've ever sat on. He could be as pretty as heck, but an a$$ to boot!
It's a big investment, don't fall in love with the first or the second or even the third one you see....
Write a list of what you want, and write a list of what you are willing to compromise.....
At the top of the list of wants for me would be:
And pretty would jus be a bonus
