Blu, can you comfortable afford another horse? Are you okay with dealing with an OTTB? They can be quite... spirited... at times.
It's very enticing to just say "heck ya!!!" to a free horse... but think.. he's free for a reason. If times got really tough, would you be able to support him through it, even if he got hurt and needed a vet, or be able to sell him quickly?
A stone bruise may be the cause of lameness, but I personally would NEVER buy a horse with any kind of lameness at the time of purchase... the stone bruise could be hiding something worse.
I hate to be saying all this... if you feel it's right, then by all means go for it, but think with your head, not your heart.
Best of luck!!
