My friend that we bought our two bay mares from, owns this colt and his dam. She bought them in the Fall and the colt wouldn't grow and looked pretty bad. They take awesome care of their horses and they are always slick and pretty. The mare looked great so they were baffled as to why the colt looked bad. Turns out that he had a huge belly full of worms!! They had him on a good worming routine so they just couldn't believe this!! They had to power pack him and also put him on a daily wormer. He is now slicking off and looking good and finally filling out. He is on the small side though, but his sire is also a small horse. The small size doesn't bother me as long as he fills out and gets some mass on him as I feel he should. He is pretty narrow right now though. He is correct in every other way and I just love his breeding. He should be a catty butt dragger with that cross of Docs Hickory and Shining Spark.
But anyways, that he why he is priced as he is. He still doesn't look his best and the girl is a good friend and she knew we would continue good care with him so that is our price. Still have not decided what we are going to do, that will be up to hubby at this point. If we had 100 acres, I would have at least 50 horses! LOL!
