The 4 year old Hano I reeeeally like. He's a Rascalino - <3 that line, WITH the Welt Hit - I would SERIOUSLY be looking into him. I think he will be a good horse and he already looks stronger behind than that 6 year old you posted.

LOL Apologies, really!!! They appear ALL the time, no joke.. every week 20 new ones to look at. But thats the thing, there are SO many to look at, I was going to buy a 10yo Gotthard mare.. for 2500.. silver registered brood mare. Too much horse for the girl... the family knocked 800 off the price because they liked my riding and my dad's weird sense of humour.. failed vet check :(

And which one is that.. can you post a link for me??

I would really check the stifle/hock on the right hind of the horse in the first video. I don't know, it just seems that he doesn't power forward on that leg. I would pre-vet him very carefully.

The second video the riding is not helping this horse look good. The rider has him so cranked in that his back is hollow and tight. The horse's movement has been very hampered. It is hard to know how nice the horse may move once he is allowed to use his back well. He also looks like a handful and giving the rider some trouble.

TIA.. again!

Through the whole video I though either the rider has strong hands or the horse is trying to take off... then I saw the walk, the breeding and the pic and yep, the horse is hot like snot. Weltmeyer and Lauries Crusador is gonna give one heck of a hot horse. I still like my Rascalino better (and if you don't buy him I might just fly over and snatch him up :P a bit too big to fit in my suitcase though lol).

I like that.. hot like a snot. Kinda reminds me of Duffy!!... see I like those lines.. a lot! Or though LC is more jumper lines imo... Duffy is.. hottish under saddle, she needs a rider with consequences- do it, or doggy chum. I've only ever seen one person trot her, and not very well, I've never seen her move under saddle as my trainer can't ride. Rubbish. Would need to put that in the add.. not a beginners horse :S

If she's still there when I look, will let you know ;D And with that breeding, if things went wrong- broodmare. Thanks for taking the time guys... if I do decide, closer to the time I will be dragging you all in here and sitting you down to watch video after video after video after video...

Is the Rascalino ad the one with two videos showing him trotting in a full rig? Who in the world would offer sale videos meant to show movement with a horse completely bound up in a lunging rig like that? On both videos? That would worry me....a lot. I am so not a fan of those rigs.

Bring me over! I will ride Duffy in a heartbeat!

Done thing.. I suppose it shows the 'submission' of the horse- horse is used to the gear and not fighting it etc. Very common. I always ask to see the horse in its box, groom and tack myself, owner rides, then I ride, then I'll go back again and ride.. and turn up early morning so they aren't beasting the living daylights out of it before you turn up!

And lol come over and you can ride her for me!! She's a lovely girl, super feeling under saddle... I find anything smaller than her now super slow bahahahahaha and jolty.. she's very smooth and her paces so big you have time to feel EVERYTHING.. so you know when she's a bit ooey on a leg or is pratting about!

All I can think is that it's 4 and who knows how broke it is, or if it's broke. The rig doesn't bother me, it's what my horse was started in and the guy that showed me the horse, and does our young horse and stallion testing, swears by them. It's also adjusted very loosely.

I hate sale videos where the horse is just loose in an arena running around with someone chasing it with a whip - they're my pet peeve. I would rather have a blurry video of the horse being lunged.
