This is for CANTER horses in Mid-Atlantic and Pennsylvania.

Size, gender not an issue prefer 3 - 5 yo

Who is catching your eye right now?

Every horse at Delaware Park, pretty much!

Divine Retribution, Barrister Bay and Kiteboarding all caught my attention... then I saw lots more who are awfully appealing, too.

There is another website you should check out if you are looking for really nice OTTBs for not much money. Some are even free if you are willing to put in the injury rehab time.

http://www.goodhorse.org

My friend Kim runs the placement program and is always honest about the horses. I got my OTTB mare from the Looking for a Home section (freebies) And she is fantastic.

If I didn't just buy a project, I would be driving down with a trailer (from Canada!) to pick up Prince of Belair. He is standing over his forelegs a bit and may be a bit front heavy, but if he's an easy gallop like they claim and not a 'pull and plow'-er, that wouldn't bother me at all.

I would like one similar to the one I have with regard to nice looking, nice mover, great mind, brave, smart, athletic, comical, fun, versatile, loveable.

but with more bone and a bigger barrel.

That's why I might breed her to a warmblood (preferably one with lots of TB in the pedigree!)

I LOVE my Chestnut OTTB mare!!!

Honestly, I would buy the one I've been riding in a heartbeat. I was actually going to, one day away from sending an app and a check, when I got one of those life curveballs.

I'd be lying if I said I was anything but heartbroken that I can't buy her for myself, that's how wonderful I think she is.

The most lovely and excellent and perfect filly in the world (http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=3089:cane&catid=48:ma-canter-available-now).

OK, so she cribs. But she's one of the most special horses I've ever been around... will have to get some new pics this week before she leaves for NC (sorta hard to do, have to grab fellow boarders when they're not doing stuff with their horses!). We jumped some baby XC stuff yesterday and she was a star.

I know, I'm biased, I love each and every one I get the privilege of smooching on and riding, but she is so flipping special. ugh. Life, you kill me.

the only two horses that I've ridden that have been almost un ridable were by the Nureyev line. One of them I refused to continue working with. The owner sent her to a cowboy for a good reality check (since we couldn't stay on her).

Both of them talented as all get out but so un ridable that they were useless. Hot, overly rude, sensitive, and full of flight and fright syndrome.

I wouldn't touch them with a ten foot pole.

Hey my Stormy Atlantic (by Storm Cat) has a lovely temperment, and he was not gelded until he was almost 5. Seriously--tops on his list of favorite things is scritches.

That said, go try Caffeinated's lovely chestnut CANTER filly. After all these years I say a good mind is a top priority.

Royce- highly recommend the connections with Kiteboarding and Are you my mudder. I know the price is very negotiable on Mudder to a good home. I don't think Barrister Bay's connections are willing to negotiate all that much. He is a cool horse though and one of my favorites as far as personality.

Wow, I too have a late-gelded (raced til the end of his 6 y.o. year) by Stormy Atlantic that is so personable (sometimes in a dominant way, but he is a really really neat guy). Do you have pics of yours? Mine is "Oakridge Star" on the "horses" tab of my link (sorry for pop-ups), or here http://millsequine.com/p140461097/h1707429a#h1707429a.

This darling is a 1/2 sister (mom side) to my guy and he is a perfect steady eddie at the ripe age of 6. I moved him along but less than 6 months off the track he was in a parade lite up (literally) with lights on the saddle and rider. Took to everything like a champ and is the love of a 10 and 8 year old. She looks just like him in both body and markings. (Hit hit the jackpot with 4 socks and a blaze)

Pleasant Colonies I've known/heard about here tend to all have the same kind of eager, interested, hard-working personality. Also, pretty good movement. It seems to get passed along pretty strongly. So that makes sense to me! They also tend to have a slight pigeon-chest and tendency to be crooked in the chest/lean on right front from what I can tell - and she has that, too. That's not a biggie, though - muscular and massage helps loads. And of course what I've seen may not even be "typical" but just what I've seen in my small sample size. :)

I would really, really like another Pleasant Colony for my next horse after my current love of my horsey life!

My trainer advised that I got something closer which I did end up with a local OTTB. I also have comfo shots too. She's a wonderful horse and I would have bought her had I been closer.
