    His movement is very balanced for such a big youngster.

    Thank goodness he's too far away for me to be tempted!

    Striking till you look at him in detail. Wouldn't touch him with a 10 foot pole, personally.

    Wow, that was my exact reaction too! First thought: STUNNING.

    Then I looked at the legs...back at the knee...coon footed...swelling on front left knee, lump on right rear fetlock in front...and that's just what I can SEE.

    Poor baby he is very pretty but what the heck???

    His knees are what is bothering me. Hope he finds a good home but I don't think this one should have a sport horse career only a pleasure career.
    I want to be like Barbie because that bitch has everything!

    I'm not a thoroughbred person, I don't like/need a big horse, and I can't manage a 2-year old ex-stallion. Nor do I stall, blanket, or shoe (as the ad specified). And I'm half a country away. So this horse is a terrible match for me.

    Nonetheless, I'm having to restrain myself from hitching up the trailer and heading to Lexington! I think he looks dreamy!!

    That is one. big. dude.

    Really liked him from the thumbnails - what's not to like about a nice big shiny bay with a nice shoulder and a gorgeous face? Uhm, well, the lower half of his body, that I noticed when I enlarged the pics.

    His face swirl placement says 'go' not pleasure.

    The ad clearly states his limitations and special requirements given his size and age. Xrays of knees are available. I love New Vocations photos -- a really nice presentation to help find the right homes for the horses available. Best wishes this guy gets a good match.

    I can't believe his knees are ok -- is that just from a growth spurt? His front end is just scary. He looked off on the right.

    I hope he goes to a pleasure home. The lower level hunters might suit him, also. Maybe if he was given just pasture turn out for the next two years...

    I didn't see anything unusual about his swirl, looked high -- that usually is intelligence. Maybe that would be "go," I dunno.

    He's a pretty horse, but I am not sure what he can end up doing. Most people don't want an 18hh horse. I too hope he finds that lifetime person.

    New Vocations does a great job with placing their horses in appropriate homes..Some horses that grow at that rate have some temporary joint blemishes, which is why I am sure that they have consulted an orthopedist..It quite clearly states low level juming, etc..They are not trying to place him in a high impact career...Assuming that the person who gets him is looking more towards the pleasure route his conformational defects will probably not be an issue assuming those knee xrays do not reveal something really awful...
