I don't want to offend you if it's your horse, but from the description he sounds like a wacko. No wonder he's free.

no offense taken. Someone sent me the link to it and I replied "sounds like fun....not" I knew there was a reason it was free! But I sent the link to a friend of mine who has a TB and hers acts similar and it's no big deal to her so I thought maybe there would be someone out there who would feel the same way and be interested in a free horse

I already got my free horse, but thanks.

Mine isn't a whackadoodle, either. Calm, kind, sane, sound, and conformationally put together pretty nicely.

Yeah. Im sure someone will have the patience for him. He looks like he has potential from the picture. But it is ashame that such an older horse has all those probems. At least they were honest in their ad.

Either that, or he's a crazy mess that will as soon kill you as look at you, and they figured they'd get caught out the second someone stepped out of the car to look at him. He is pretty though, I'll give him that much.

I wouldn't hesitate to take him if my situation was different, and if he didn't need Adequan shots at 13 years old. The behavioral problems would be doable.
However, I'm a poor college student and I live in WI, so yeah. Also, they are other horses I could probably take in without so many issues.
I sure do hope he finds a good home though.

If I weren't looking for something younger, I'd be interested. He is scopey and clearly has potential to go higher than 3 ft since he is over-jumping that oxer by at least a foot. Being a little nervous in new places is no big deal, so long as he settles soon after. Working on him with the trailer isn't that difficult, so long as he eventually goes in- or just use one without a ramp. Having a buck after jumping is something that can be worked out by an experienced rider - so long as he isn't doing it because he is hurting. Adequan is expensive, but another maintenacne product might work and anyway, I'd probably put anything over 10 that was jumping 3'6 or above on some level orf premium joint supplement. The hock injections aren't great, but depending on how often he needs them, might not be too bad. Ultimately, for an good rider looking to get a horse that is jumping at 3ft with the potential to go higher for free, and who can afford the maintenance, he looks like he has the potential to be a great deal. And at least the seller is being honest - that counts for a lot in the horse industry!

He's probably a high strung TB and needs a good rider. And at his age he's going to need a joint supplement to keep his hocks working. He's got a few more years in him yet. Looks like a good rider could take a chance on him
