OK I'm trying out 'Bailey', as I was walking towards him in the field today none of the other names seemed right, then Bailey popped into my head and it seemed to suit him.

So......he passed the vetting HOORAY!!! :D I get him at the weekend! Not sure what day yet, waiting for the transport people to get back to me.

He's a 16hh, 9 years old TB.

Trying to figure out how to get pics off my phone now :lol:

Thanks BC, done it now!

He might not look amazing but he really has the most lovely personality and he was really nice to ride. He's handsome to me!! He was nuzzling up to me during the vetting and when I went back to the field at the end to take photos he walked over to me!

I bet you can't WAIT to get him home.:D

Is someone going with you to collect him? Is he an ex racer?

No just the transport, I don't have a trailer or towbar or anything so I've got a horse transport company doing it.

No he's never raced. When he was sold as a colt though he was sold for 250,000!! He had good bloodlines but never raced coz he just didn't have it in him and wasn't interested so then he was used as a stallion until he was gelded.

How can they sell him for 2k, if he once sold for 250k:shocked:

Yep he's here!!

I know it's a big drop from 1/4 of a million! He was shipped over from America and at that point they thought he was going to race.
