I don't like the back legs of that second one very much personally. I'd go with the first one.

Ugh. I am SO upset. I just found out the woman is thinking $2500 for the appy, NOT $1000 or so like I originally thought she was thinking. She always avoided the question. He has only had 30 rides on him in 4 years, he is definitely not what I would pay $2500 for!

No wouldn't get him. I like vinny personally. He's a good looking horse. got a good kind eye on him.
I don't like the buckskin. He doesn't seem to be nearly as we'll conformed

I know this thread is very old, but I thought I would update everyone -- I bought Vinnie in January!!

He was started under saddle in summer 2013, and by the time I purchased him had countless rides and thousands of hours of handling, plus 8 different riders of varying abilities ride him on the trails. I have myself a nice horse :)

Bonus -- the concerns about club foot/front feet have been solved. The farrier says his barefoot feet are AMAZING, although his fronts were long when I got him and his front right has a superficial crack (yes, I got x-rays) from letting it go too long.

He is sweet, loving, patient. Only issues I have had with him is his initial caution around new people, which he usually gets over within a minute or two of meeting someone new.

Here are some pics :)
