    Besides all that, his picture doesn't impress me one little bit.
    Agree. He looks like he's saying " go ahead, try me, I got some more nasty's up my sleeve"
    Btw, like your kitty-avatars

    It is a really bad photo so I'm going to pass on commenting on him
    I really do think that you have to have a 'gut feeling' about a horse that tells you that its the one for you - even when sometimes common sense is saying 'run away'
    When I was offered an aggressive arabian stallion my sensible thought was ' Oh my God an arab - me? I don't think so' but I went to have a sneaky look at him in the field and it was love at first sight, I had to have him and I was so emotional I cried all the way home!!! He was a huge success (after some very difficult months and my husband thinking I should be certified!!!!)
    Keep looking

    That's exactly the vibe I got from him.

    Nik - what area of WI are you in (like, give me a large-ish city that you're close to)? I live in Wisconsin and know of a few good horses for sale if you're anywhere near here.

    Oh, I googled it an you're only a couple of hours from me. How far are you willing to drive?

    I'm up near Superior, WI but am willing to travel for the right horse at the right price. Willing to take on a project but would prefer the horse to at least to have a willing attitude and be fairly young. The problem is that my budget is pretty low... I'd really like to find something under $1000, a bit more if the horse has some training.

    Most of the horses I'm looking at are at least 3 hours away.

    Okay. I can tell you right now, there's a reeeally cute mare at my barn that's for sale right now (I've seen her work, and I'd so buy here if I could afford 2. Haha), and I know of a couple of others in the area. I can find out prices on them if you'd like. I live in River Falls.

    Nik, for $1,000 you should be able to find exactly what you're looking for. It's a buyer's market right now, especially since we're getting ready to head into winter, and people don't want sale horses on their feed bills during the most expensive season.
