I'll bet you money that grey is older than 8.

Yeah? Even if his papers say that he is? How old does he look?

The poor boy looks like he needs some lovin' and some groceries. If he was raced at all he will have a lip tattoo that has a letter that designates the year the horse was born.

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

Before purchasing him, I plan to look up his registration name and tattoo, just to make sure I know what I'm getting. Hopefully I've found a home for my little mare this weekend too!

I could be wrong, but I've never herd of a horse getting flea bitten before 10.

I looked up the grey's pedigree, he's most definitely only 8 years old :)

There isn't a hard and fast rule, it varies from breed to breed.

I've seen plenty, I used to work with some. So there isn't really a rule. :)

Is it common in horses, even thoroughbreds, be be inbred when it comes the "Something Royal" gene?

You are on top of things, TC. The grey looks like a pretty good deal, although the little bay mare is the type I go for -LOL! Yes, if you can stay away from the paperwork/restrictions a rescue requires-so much the better. Yes, they do a good job, but sometimes their rules just aren't realisitic. I'd much rather own my horses outright & able to make all decisions concerning them. Good luck in your search!
