So we went and looked today and I think my boyfriend is in love! He is kind of skinny but it isn't like the owners aren't feeding him and don't care because they definitely care I just think he is either a hard keeper or isn't getting enough food. His spine sorta sticks out and it is sunkin in around his spine all the way to his tail. His butt is sunkin in as well. I just think he needs some groceries.

It was blizzardig out(basically) and he was slipping all over and was a trooper! He has an old eye injury from when he was a yearling and it doesn't effect him much but I do think he is (if not already) blind in that eye.

We have the vets number so I will be giving them a call Monday and will make my decision :)

to add- i was researching where he came from prior from his current home (the place they bought him from is fairly close to me) and i found youtube ads advertising him for sale in November and the guy says he has had him for 6 or so months.... so im not so sure he has had him for 6 months.. so kinda weird there....

But the horse does seem to be represented truelly and not lame or anything after i saw the way he was rippin around his paddock today in the snow LOL.

Im just sorta sketched out about this place they had purchased him from because I almost bought a horse from them and it was drugged....good thing i didnt do that... BUT the current owner did offer to give us his vets number to call for ourselves and talk with the vet. Especially about his eye being that I definitely think he is blind or going blind in it..will keep yall updated!

I would totally go for him. He looks (and sounds) really awesome.

I wouldn't be worried about them saying 6 months and it only being November til now. Maybe the sellers didn't take the ads down right away or something, or. Some people are bad with time like that. To them, if they are sure it hasn't been a year.. it's around 6 months. If they are pretty sure it's more than that, it's "years". (my grandmother is like that lol).

Yeah, you could be right because I inquired about one of there horses before I got my guy and that was in October and the videos she posted of that horse weren't posted until December. Weird!

Will know tomorrow though for certain if we are getting him :)
