His name is Nugget, he is a Palomino/Paint. He is 3.. he is the best 3 year old I have ever seen... his only vice was that he wanted to be with the herd when I was test riding... He was trained in western as a trail horse, but he will totally ride english... he has very good movement and doesn't neck rein anyways...He followed me around like a dog and the current owner didn't even have to tie him when she tacked him up... he just stood there like it was no big deal... He is so calm, she walked under him and raised her back up to his and he lifted it and didn't even act like he was worried about what she was doing.. she also showed us a video of him with a cat on his back "making biscuits" he didn't care a bit. ANYWAYS I'M EXCITED!! also he was only 6 months in this pic.

He's handsome. I'd love to see any updated pictures to see how he grew up. Congrats on the new boy!!

I took some pics today when I went out to see him, he is of course very dirty and you cant even tell his legs have white on them... dirtyyy. and his mane and tail are quite yellow right now. also the other horses apparently pick on him...so he got some marks right now but once he gets to his new home he is going to be whitened up and pretty!! but here is his rough photo from today...

also he is about 15.2... we think he may get an inch or 2 bigger and definitely fill out more... he is gonna be a good sized boy!

I'm going to step up and suggest that you pass on this horse. The horse in the picture is not the same horse as a 3 year old. Horses may vary in shades as they grow but a horse doesn't loose the white sox or does his feet change color as he grows. I would avoid this seller at all costs because if she is not telling you the truth about that, I would not believe anything she said.

Secondly, unless you have a great deal of experience (which I am getting the impression that you don't), I would avoid a 3 year old horse no matter how nice he seems to you. You are already starting off with a horse that is barn sour and that is going to take knowledgeable horseman or a trainer.

Look for a horse that is 10 - 15 years old that will teach you rather then the romantic idea of learning together.
