Thoughts on my OTTB :)
His name is Monte Carlo and he's a 5 year old OTTB, He last raced in July. He was retired due to a bowed tendon in his super digital flexor on his front left leg, it healed up without any issues the vet said I should have no limitations. I'm hoping to do hunters, equitation and/or jumpers on him.
^ Yearling Photo
^ Taken right before I brought him home
^ One month under saddle (sorry it's a little blurry :[ )
^ Just for fun :P

Thank you! He's such a ham, I love him, haha.

For a TB, IMO, he has beautiful lines! and that color! Love it.
He is a gorgeous athlete. The pic of him just before you got him is a little ick though but the one where you're riding him, he looks fantastic. What do you use him for?

VERY cute boy. :)
I definitely see a future hunter in the making. ;)

@TheMadHatter - Thank you! we're doing basic flat work and some simple dressage stuff now but I would love to make him a hunter.
@blush - Thank you! Yeah, I'm really crossing my fingers, haha. We haven't jumped him yet but I'm hoping he's just as quiet like he is on the flat :)

I can't see his bowed tendon at all. He is great looking & I love his name. Enjoy!

I think he is awesome! Beautiful lines and I can see that moves great from that pic!!!! Congrats :-)

@waresbear - thank you! I love his name too, his nickname is monster which is just as fun :P and the bow healed up so nice you can't see it unless you really search for it, which is awesome.
@feistymomma - thank you! I got lucky, he moves wonderful. I love watching him, he's such a handsome boy.
