Thanks Anita! I think that he is quite awesome as well. He passed the vet check fine, all flex tests sound, and lounging and undersaddle as well. They did say he was a bit uneven in the hind, but it was nominal and less then 1.5 inches, and the vet said it was no cause for concern.
The vet that checked him is new to digital xrays, WV is a little behind the times, and she suggested that I have my vet in maryland take a look at the xrays, just to be sure. So I am waiting on that. Should be done by the end of the week. The great thing is this vet charges by the hour, and not by each xray, so they xrayed him up and down, so I will be very informed of ANYTHING that could be wrong.
As far as I know, from what the owner told me, no injections in the hocks.
He has a GREAT personality, just a big puppy, and even though he is big and forward, I never felt intimidated by him or that he was going to bolt etc. The owner did mention that he likes to be a one person horse and really bonds with the person that rides him, which is a HUGE plus in my book.
