    Default Saint of an OTTB - CL classic

    I'll let the ad and video speak for themselves. This horse has a stellar disposition. I will say that the owner is very kind to him and for that reason I don't want to make fun but...it's still worth a read and view.

    The guy was super kind to that horse - not at all what I expected from a Kid Rock wannabe . Cute horse too, but what are "hoffs"?

    I took that to mean hoofs.

    Love the beer run comment too. Just a classic.

    Horse is in good weight and owner is very kind to him. Actually kind of nice to see. Looks like a nice horse.

    Sweet horse. Yes, owner is very kind and it was kind of amusing when he was handling the latigo like he was thinking, "what's this doing here?" The only criticism I have is where he has that saddle placed. The points of the tree are sitting directly on his (her?) shoulder blades - ouch!

    Wow, apparently Ohio has changed since I lived there as a teenager.... apparently you now need a sidearm to make a video in your own yard? From my mostly Canadian point of view, very strange indeed. And apparently grooming prior to sales video is optional?

    Guy does seem very kind, but very clueless.

    "can give beginner lessons/horse care if needed. none of witch are real complex" Well, I beg to differ. I lasted about 3 weeks giving beginner lessons. It was a very complex conversation trying to explain to someone why they couldn't jump until they could stay on at a trot. Guess I was the witch

    I'd buy that horse if he ties. I don't want to buy a sawhorse for my saddle.

    Truly a CL gem! Who knew Kid Rock sold horses on CL as a sideline?

    Yeah, what a sweet horse and what a patient guy.

    I was holding my breath when the guy left the saddle un-cinched to put the bridle on. As someone else noted, that was an interesting way to bridle a horse, but if that's how he always does it, that must be what Melvin is used to, and the guy was gentle and kind to him. I am assuming the horse is named Melvin, not the guy.

    Melvin stood very well for mounting, which impressed me, since that can be a problem for OTTBs.

    I really liked that horse.

    It's New Lebanon. I'm sure he's spelling it phonetically with the local accent

    ETA: I need to brush up on my pop culture. Had to Google Kid Rock and sure enough, a resemblance!

    Also, I'm sure Ohio is just the same as when you were here NorthWoodsRider. It's just gotten kind of fashionable to wear a gun now. Go figure?

    I love how he asks him if he's ready before he gets on

    Appearances aside, I was impressed with how quiet and patient the guy was with the horse. Also impressed with how quiet and patient the horse was with the guy!
