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.
