    Default Canter Colorado guy

    http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...ngs&Itemid=397

    For some reason, even though there are things that annoy me about his conformation, I keep going back to this guy. His face is just so sweet looking, and personally I think his scars give him character.

    I like him. The scars don't matter..they give him "character". He looks sweet.

    Oh I like him a lot But I'm a huge sucker for the slightly-banged-up-with-sweet-face thing.

    (and really, his conformation is not bad, see a lot of things to like there too!)

    Chicks dig scars! ( Watched a rerun of "The Replacements" the other night...)

    His face is sooo sweet!

    I think he's absolutely lovely. The way he's built reminds me of a fox-hunter I used to know who was "retired" to teach the kiddies how to jump, and was sent off to ride out a few times a year. Last I knew, he was still sound in his late 20's.

    And I like his feet, a lot.

    I love him. I don't think his confo is that bad at all. Wish I needed another horse.

    I forwarded him on to an eventer friend in CO, not that I think she would want a project but she might know someone who does.

    I think he is very cute as well! I love his color and conformation.

    The scars don't bother me in the least.

    Well, I emailed the owner and she replied back that she has a lot of interest in him after dropping his price. Hope he gets a good home!

    There's a whole lot to like there. He'd be welcome in my barn any day!

    I like him too.
    He looks like a very kind soul who just wants a person.

    I don't see any glaring faults and his pedigree is FABULOUS for sport. A grandson of Unbridled with a cross of Damascus and (be still my heart!) Buckpaser via Spend a Buck, who he somewhat resembles. One of the most enjoyable and "chilled out" young TB's I ever rode was a Spend A Buck grandson.

    What do you guys think of Awesome Wanderer on the trainer listings for Colorado?

    He looks like a nice type, but he is standing funky so it is hard to see his conformation.

    Legs look clean.

    Wish there was a video!

    Anyone live in Colorado?

    Looks like the trainer has a home in Arizona!

    Wonder if he brings horses with him.....


    I do like him. Would want to see him for that price and he is 5 not 3.
