Soooo Scout had his surgery and is recovering well, but he won't be rideable for quite some time. I had been considering another horse anyway and decided now was the time. I searched tons and actually went to ride a few. None were impressive, and some of you may have heard but one place was downright disgusting...
Well I saw an ad for Red and figured I'd give it a shot even though he's 2 1/2 hours away. Turns out it was so worth it. I went to meet him and fell in love. He's got a great disposition and very level-headed.
He's an 8 year old OTTB who is now an event horse. He's almost 16.3 and a lover-bug. The PPE went very well and Vet said he was a great horse, especially for the price. He's coming home tomorrow!
Sorry some are not the greatest...

What a kind face. I'd love to know what he's being fed. I would kill to have my OTTB looking that plump. Congrats on your new boy.

Thanks guys! He's on Sentinel LS, I'm not sure how much he's fed though.

A lot of the plumpness is from muscle, too. He's an eventer and they do lots of conditioning!

He is gorgeous, even from the blurry photos. Congratulations :) Post some better photos when you get him home and settled so we can all "Aww" over him!

SEEEE! I've been saying this and everyone thinks I'm crazy!! He's great!! He's got a large stride, so it's much different from my short lil choppy Appy's gait...but his canter is to die for. Soo smooth and lovely. He's just a great boy all round.
Of course he had to roll immediately after I cleaned him up....








meeting the minis next to him
