but I just can't help but look! Some one please go pick him up before I spend my rent money on this guy :)

I can't stop myself from looking either! I've been drooling over this girl (http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=4000:meetyouatgrouions&catid=41:n-cal-trainer-listings)since she was posted

oh damn you had to pull out a grey!!! I'm such a sucker....

Hehe... Sorry but, I had to sign a release saying that I would be a CANTER enabler when I signed onto COTH many moons ago. So...

GO GET HIM! He's adorable!

I thought he was grey at first too...

He's old for an OTTB. His pedigree has Coup de Folie but that's pretty much it.

you can find younger with more sport in the pedigree.

And I'm willing to bet he is smaller than 16.3 according to the height at which that handler's arm comes to the halter.

Really?? The dam line of his sire is lovely for sport. Grey Dawn and a My Babu daughter.... both of whom I always like to see in a pedigree for an event horse. His sire is a son of AP Indy (which usually are good looking and moving horses--very good jumpers) and a lot of people like him in a sport pedigree--although I personally do not have any experience with them.

Dam line has Coup de Folie which is really nice but also a lot of old tough lines on the first page--love seeing Blenheim on the first page. A real warrior's pedigree. I tend to really like horses from the 9-f family.

Plus he has had 51 starts. If the boy is sound...while he may be 8...he should hold up for any job. He's pretty...and he looks well put together.

If you are buying for yourself....I would go look at him. If you are buying for a quick resale...then no, his age will make him a tough sale.

I bought a 7yr old with 68 starts through the canter listings. She vetted clean as a whistle!!! Not only was she a supreme athlete but she was breath taking after a little TLC. I resold her and she is moving to plain dealings farm in a week with her owner who recently joined the team as a groom.. Can't wait to see what they do together...

She was VERY flashy though..

I like the grey a little better than the dark bay, and shes younger.. But if it's for yourself and the bay strikes you- then go for it! I'll scrounge up who I've been drooling over!

9f is a good family. I'd take a look at him. Some members of his dam-line are quite nice - yes, a ways back, but TB's are bred pretty tight, a classy dam-line is a good thing to have.

I think the gelding looks and sounds wonderful!!! This is a little guy I've been drooling over and I want somebody to go get. I just bought my prospect and if I had room I would get him too...He is tiny but he sounds mighty:)

I seriously almost took in this guy.. Glad but sad that someone else got to him first! A little flat in the croup, would like to see a little more angle in the hocks... Possibly a tad upright in the pasterns- maybe a little short necked too.. but with some feed and TLC I think this guy only has very minor conformation flaws to worry about.. Best of luck to him!
