    Would you..if it was you?



    The lady that I'm getting my palomino filly from has a palomino paint colt that hurt his leg, she says it's getting better and thinks it will heal over the winter. It was a bit swollen the last time I saw him, but she says he's starting to trot all over the place. She's offering him to me for $50. Would you take him? There's not a possibility of me getting the vet out there, she's too far out of the way for me to pay for a vet to go that far. Is it possible that he just twisted his leg and will grow out of it or if he's hurt now..will he always be lame? My boyfriend says once they are hurt they never get over it?

    Honestly, I'd go look him over, lead him around, ask him to trot if you can. You know how a foal should move - just watch him and see what you think. See if you can do a deal where if he doesn't show signs of improvement in 30 days, you get to bring him back.

    Honestly I think he's precious and $50 is a great price for a colorful foal. Can he be registered? He looks to have a decent build, and if he can be registered, I'd do it.

    Me - I'd get him. When you get him home have a vet look him over. At worst, you're out the $50 and find him a forever home. At best it's something easily treatable and you get an amazingly gorgeous horse out of it!

    Yes, he can be registed.

    (ignore the boo-boo in my first post where I called my fiance my boyfriend, lol. Still not use to the change.)

    I'd do it. $50 is an amazing deal... I mean, if paying for some vet bills won't put you in financial stress, then do it! :)

    It looks like he actually has some leg issues (from poor conformation) I would ask for better pictures of his legs.
