    Default Stunning 4yr OTTB-AWESOME PERSONALITY-PROSPECT FOR ANYTHING

    "Bam-Bam" as we call him is a 4 year old 16.1 hand Bay thoroughbred gelding who is free to a good home. He is currently stabled at the racetrack, but will not take too much let-down time as he hasn't been in training long.

    Bam-Bam is regally bred and has the looks to go with the pedigree.He is a one breeder,owner, trainer model so you get the whole history with him. He bowed at the beginning of his 3 year old year and was given over a year off to heal and grow up. (He was very immature.)

    Well, he has matured mentally, but is just too big boned to race and owner doesn't want to push him. He is completley sound on the tendon and will be a great prospect for anything- including jumping, but just not racing.

    He has a great personality as he is very michevious always grabbing things and goofing around. He loves his treats and is very easy to work around. He has no vices and floats when he is ridden.
    He is located in Bensalem, PA and is free to a good home with a contract. PM for Details..

    Here are a couple pictures

    Wow - hadn't noticed that. I assume there's an associated legend that goes with that?

    Oh, I looked it up! I knew the story about the water, but I missed the part about the thumbprint (or forgot it.) I heard it as a child. What an awesome plus for this fellow. Hope he lucks up on somebody grand

    Not sure if this horse is still available - I found the trainer's # on CANTER and talked to him on Monday. He had someone coming to look within the hour and said he'd call back if it didn't work out. Haven't heard back from him....

    Hi all...

    I spoke with the trainer and he said he had a girl come out monday and fell in love with him and wanted him. She talked to a shipper and he is supposed to leave tomorrow for Lancaster, PA- the only problem is they haven't heard from her since Monday. She even dropped her debit card in the shedrow and are holding it for her, but she hasn't returned their calls.....

    So, if she doesn't get back to him- Bam-bam is still available, but as of right now-he is pending!

    OK the trainer said the girl who wanted him never called him or the shipper back about the horse- or more importantly the fact that she dropped her debit card in the shedrow... Craziness!

    Anyway, someone is coming on Saturday to see Bam-bam as she was the second to call on him. (The trainer said he is calling back people in the order he received the calls) soo some lucky person is going to get this guy!

    bumpin this guy up... he is still available. The trainer has someone who wants him, but she has to sell a horse first to make room, so unsure of time frame. Trainer needs the stall space, as he is still at the track, so he is still available...

    Oh come on people. This is a handsome gelding that is also a PA listed Canter Cutie. I will personally purchase a Canter saddle pad for the lucky person who takes this guy and gives him a good home. So who is it going to be?

    What are the stipulations in the 'contract ?' Is it a CANTER contract ?

    Not a CANTER contract because he is not CANTER owned. That would be a contract governed by the owner or trainer. PM the OP and find out.

    Hi there. The contract is nothing but a bill of sale stating the horse was given to "new owner" and if for some reason it doesn't work out- they will take him back.

    The owner wants him to have a good home and wants to make sure he does.
