Did you get him? He is cute, and I am not an Arab person at all!

I see that he's sold, were you the one who bought him? He's really cute, I would've snatched him up in a heartbeat if they did this in Canada.

Exactly. You have no way of knowing what he's really like. He could be a total DIAMOND but he could be crazier than a cr*phouse rat too. Also, if you do get him, when he gets home, QUARANTINE for at least 30 days. Strangles runs crazy through those places. Of the 3, at least 2 have been bought, he's got the best confo at least according to the pics.

Kait, please continue to be very careful for a few more days, there are some sedatives out there that can last at low levels for days (namely anti psychotics that are not legaly approved for horses). I'm not saying yours is doped but it is not unheard of. just be careful.

Hopefuly you have found a gem though.

What diseases do you have over there that require a 30 day quarenteen? Strangles only requires a 14 day quarenteen with the vast majority of cases showing signs within 5 days of contraction the disease.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
