I know someone else here was looking at him with over 987 hits to his listing! I picked him up yesterday at the track and he's settling in nicely. He'll need a month of stall rest, and at least another month or two of turnout--vet's orders. He has a lovely view of the farm action from his stall: donkeys, pony clubbers, chickens and the ring. His future vocation will hopefully be as a fine first flight fox hunter but his movement is really screaming dressage.
He's a very sweet, well-mannered boy. I can't say enough good things about his owners/trainers and the whole buying experience. I got to meet his regular vet, no pressure, very caring people.
He's 6 so he's a lot more mature than some of the other listings, was gelded late at 3, so he has a bit of a stallion look left, and all of his barn mates were well fed and rounded! He's got a lot of substance... and size 3 feet!
Yes, he did go fast! I was very interested in Corri's Contender a few weeks back and her listing changed to sold WHILE I was looking at the photos. Good horses go FAST! So I called as soon as I could and made a next day appointment to see him. Marcia had a list of folks to call back pending my decision. Pretty horses don't sit for long.
Oh I was drooling over him!!! Congratulations! Corri's Contender was also one I was drooling over. Thank god I can only afford one horse right now or I would be in trouble. Canter has so many nice horses posted right now!
