Yeah, that was my first thought too! lol I told a friend i hope that's not going to be sign! Black and Blue + Green (more of a timid rider) = Purple bruises! No, my instructor had specific requirements on what kind of horse to look for and says he's just like her mare i was leasing, just younger.
So when the vet came out to do the pre-purchase exam she was like he's a nice boy, so i would only recommend him if you want to go slow and slower! Those are his speeds. I immediately said, YEP, that's why I want him. lol
Two of my friends at the barn just got CANTER OTTB and one was a stallion until a month ago and is the sweetest guy ever and trys real hard to please his new mom (bold rider) and the other (timid rider) has turned into a problem child..running ppl over to get out of the pasture, however, when his mommy comes to get him, he's the perfect little angel! ..too funny. So I said when I found my guy, i just want a guy who says okay, you want me to do this, okay you want me to do that! He's being trained by my instructor and one of her best riders (she jumps 5') to learn to carry himself but other than that he's the best guy ever for me.
