Looking for opinions on this horse.

The first time I saw this horse for sale was a while ago, and he definitley piqued my interest but I wasn't ready to buy after losing my gelding in October (and I'm not completely sure I'm ready now.) After finding him again, I find myself really attracted for some reason. I'd like to check him out further but I am hesitant to waste anyones time if I find I'm just not ready to own another horse.

Anyhow, I just thought it would be interesting to see what you lovely people thought. I enjoy reading the advice everyone gives to people seeking it, so I thought why not ask for some myself!

Here is the ad:
**price reduced to find him a home. - Cody

Oh, and just as a side note, I don't show or anything, just pleasure and trail riding.

Wow I like him a lot. For the price, he looks awesome.

Me, too, Lakotababii! Something about him is really drawing me in. And the price is unbelievable. Thanks for commenting!

He looks nice, and the price isn't bad.

As to wasting anyones time, well no one knows when they go and look at a horse if they are going to be time wasting. If you really like this guy and he is calling to you, go see. If you don't click with him, then he isn't right for you.

There is a horse out there that will make it the right time, because when you meet him or her you wont be able to leave without them on your trailer

Keep us updated

If your drawn to him go have a look. You'll only kick yourself if you don't with a serious case of the "what if's". You wont waste anybody's time, if it doesnt feel right so be it, but for your own peace of mind I'd say gohave a look :)

He is cute. Due to his age, however, I would vet him. It would be no fun to take him home only to find he has some age related infirmities that will limit your ability to ride him.

He is a lovely little horse & at that price I wouldn't let any grass grow under my feet! I own a 19 yr. old Paso Fino (lots of go!) & a 20 yr old Arabian (even more go). They are perfectly healthy w/no issues.

Wow, guys, thanks for all the awesome comments! And for all the nice things you all said; I really love this community and that's why I wanted to share this with you all. :) I think I'll call tomorrow and find out some more info, perhaps set up a time to go out and see him. I'll keep y'all updated!

Just thought I would update anyone who is interested: I called and after talking with the woman selling, I feel I should go take a look at Cody. I'll be meeting them both this coming Saturday. I'm really excited, but I've had a couple "I'm not ready yet," moments. I know it can't hurt anything to look into him a little further, and it's better than wondering "what if..." I'll keep everyone posted further :) Thanks again, guys!
