She decided to give it a go, but wanted a pre-purchase vet check. No problem.. She paid to have one done, and he passed pretty well. Vet said he was a little under weight (I HATE when that happens) and not in working condition (which I knew obviously) but that his heart seemed good, he was a little wormy, he passed the lameness/stress test better than I expected him to and he only showed minor lameness in his rear right hock. I didnt expect that, so that was good. Vet actually said with the type of arthritis that he seemed to show, keeping him in working condition is far better for him than just sitting. Music to Amber's ears!
After the vet visit, we hauled him to her place and he seemed content and happy in his new surroundings, even managed to get a nice roll in the soft dirt!
This is his new pasture mate best friend June Bug! She's a little doll, a mini mare I helped find for Amber I think about 18 months ago or more... Super sweet little thing
And cute as a button!!
