Hey guys well I got pictures of the QH feet and they didn't look that good. In the end I rang up about this horse.
So ill be visiting this horse in Ballarat instead..
QH cross Arabian: Leaving Facebook... | Facebook
-Only Issue is im going to need to ring up the owner of the arab cross, and tell her to not lunge or catch the horse before I be around it and ride it, as she told me she lunges the horse before riding it if he is fresh or not been in work.-
