Ugh! I know I know!
I'm only 1/4 serious about it, but all I do is make myself crazy wanting ponies I can not have.
But I'd like to share with you all an add I found. I like this horse...I think. I mean he is pretty in the picture, and obviously very well trained (judging from the video) but then there is something about that way he moves that seems odd to me. Now it might be that he is pretty...er...em..rotund, or it could be that he is worn out from his life as a competition horse. The price seems really low for a horse of his training.
$4500 for a horse that I could use in ranch versatility OR ride on the trails???? Must be too good to be true.

When I watch the video I see a horse that is soft and easy, responsive and clearly well cared for. I watch his front feet and they have nice heel first landings, which (thanks to Sassy) I am learning is pretty darn important. He actually looks to be quite smooth to ride. But it is his hind end that worries me. Does anyone else see anything odd or am I just seeing a very wide horse with short legs compensate for how he is built?
I saw a couple of others too, but they were either way out of my price range or just not what I am looking for this time around. Or rather what I shouldn't be looking for but am...but wait, no, I'm not looking.
I wonder if anyone can guess what I
