    Seems like a nice man and a sweet horse. But...

    What is it with people not cleaning up their horses when trying to sell them?? Or before putting tack on?? ick.

    I couldn't get the vid to play except in few-second spurts. However, from the short I did see, I like the horse.

    "I'm a cowwwwboy BaaaaBeee!" This guy was very sweet to that horse- I laughed when he told him to stand still when the horse was standing still as a horse could stand. I was also pretty impressed with the horse's trick hoof holding up (if indeed that's what he was doing) I would have loved to see if he does it with the other 3.

    As for the sidearm... I think Ohio folks might be extra sensitive to craigslist criminals- it seems like a smart idea to me to advertise yourself as well armed and always packing when putting yourself out there on craigslist.

    Amazing how some OTTB's seem to defy all odds and turn out like Melvis. I wish I had extra moolah to bring this guy to GA pronto. Reminds me of my own OTTB who is by far the sanest horse I have ever owned.

    Melvis' video has over 1100 hits. I'm sure his owner is trying to figure out where his instant fame came from! Let's hope that with all those extra views, someone gives this super nice boy a good home. He deserves it. Would think about him for my niece but as I am currently unemployed, adding another horse just isn't in the cards!

    I seriously wish he were in my area. I'd go look at him.

    What a lovely horse, and truly nice owner. A pleasure to see - all misspellings are instantly forgiven!

    What a nice guy, He may not be the best at getting the bridle on.. Interesting method, but the horse is sweet as all get out, and the guy is very kind.
    What is with the Wife Beater comments?
    I bet that good old boy is a real nice man.
    Nice lineage on the boy.

    Mmm, I think if Melvis was pushed he just might stand up. There were several times he refused to go where the guy asked.

    I'm wondering if Melvis is accustomed to having someone pull his leg forward to get the wrinkles out of his skin once he is girthed. That big ole Western girth may be rubbing him and he's trying to tell the guy something.

    Loff the horse though!

    Really Oh that is awful. Wonder who came up with that gem.
    I know lots of people who wear those shirts in the summer. Never heard of that.

    I don't think that guy knew how to ask.... Interesting video, looks like they did their best to show melvis's better qualities (patience, tolerance, steady)

    Default You know, I'm frighteningly near Melvis

    Like about 40 minutes away.

    And.... I am going to have an "only" horse coming back at the end of the month.... and he might need a buddy and I have lots of grass, and....

    I do not need another horse.

    and I'm a sucker for OTTBs.

    How did he end up with this guy?

    And whathhellkindof a name is Melvis?

    I wonder if Melvis' name isn't Melvis on the Move which is the title of the video. Melvis is a cute name.
