would you go look at this mare?

This mare is for sale near me, the ad says she is a Morgan, 13, great trail horse, no issues. So, I'm really "not" looking but you know how it is. I love my new Morgans attitude, he's so willing to please and level headed (even when he acts like a dope ) and with 4 of us that ride and 1 horse, its just not going well. So I saw this and emailed about her.

When you give a personal lesson in meanness to a critter or to a person, don't be surprised if they learn their lesson.

The least you can do is look. However, keep in mind that a lot of sellers aren't notorious for being honest. Many of them are trying to sell a horse they can no longer use, and some a horse that isn't suitable for riding at all.

When you go to see her, ask if they have a pen or paddock where you can "test ride" her to see if she really is all she's hyped up to be. You don't want a large pasture, you want a small arena-sort deal; this way, should a problem arise, people aren't trying to help you from a grand distance.

To be honest, I would look. She looks really promising; her withers are a little high so she wouldn't be a horse I'm looking to show with. But if it's a pleasure-style horse that will be used, I would be more than happy to take her on. Just be sure to have a vet clearance before you start doing any heavy work with her to check for any "hidden" issues under that winter coat.
