I bought my OTTB out of Charlestown, WV and i am from CT. The trainer was very willing to work with us and offered to trailer the horse to a nearby vet of our choice to be vetted. We did, he passed with flying colors...and we drove down and back in one day to get him.
I am also within reasonable driving distance of Mr. Ned.....unfortunately i need to sell my warmblood gelding who i found last august before i drag in another project....i am out of stalls!!
I agree that i am a bit of an OTTB-Enabler! I think they're great horses, and with a few weeks of downtime...it makes a world of difference for these guys. they really are a lot of fun!!!
Hoping someone here can snatch up Mr. Ned. he is STUNNING!!!
