:iagree:How can anyone possibly know if a horse is "the one" from a video? A video only shows what the person taking the video wants you to see. I might see a video of a superbly broke horse, everything I would ever want, and go out and actually ride it and find an issue I didn't know was there. And that's a broke horse. Most babies are going to look awesome in a video. :wink:
I was kind of wondering the same thing. How do you know that a horse is "the one"--even a broke horse--from pics and a video? Methinks it's just because he's pretty. Pretty does not a good horse make.
There's a 10yo gelding on my local Craigslist for sale right now. He's listed as a prospect and is a beautiful chestnut paint. The video of him being round penned shows a very nice mover, especially for WP. I know someone who went out to check him out. She's an experienced horse person, so I trust her. She text me when she got back and said "That horse is completely bat-crap crazy!! I wouldn't touch him for FREE!" Just looking at his ad, pics and video, you'd think he would be "the one."
