    Anyone any experience of sesamoid fractures - need some positive vibes

    Thank you all so much, it’s great to hear it’s not complete doom and gloom. I’ve had him since he was 6 months old and he’s now 3 so he’s literally like my child, I honestly don’t know what I’d do if anything happened to him. We’re very lucky that our vets are one of the best around and the...

    suspensory injury and professional rehab?

    I think if the seller didn’t disclose the previous injuries you’d have a fair shot of returning him as it’s clear from your vets report that he has a pre-existing condition which means even if you had have been outside of the two week window with the insurance it’s highly unlikely they’d have...

    @Lucky Snowball thank you! We lost a youngster a few years back so I guess I’m terrified of the same thing happening again.

    Anyone any experience of sesamoid fractures - need some positive vibes

    So my adorable, wonderful baby warmblood has just been diagnosed with an apical fracture of the sesamoid bone in his left hind. The vet thinks it’s been like it for a while as there’s evidence of a fibrous union where the body has tried to heal itself. He’s scheduled for an MRI in a few weeks...

    Another valuing a horse thread

    We’re looking for a happy hacker at the moment and being green in the school wouldn’t be an issue at all for what we need. That said, I’d be a tad wary of something in so little work and whether they’d stand up to a bit more work but that’s mainly because I’ve been burnt before so am more...

    It's not just buyers that are timewasters!

    Slightly different circumstances but I was where you are at the end of last year. I struggled as I desperately wanted another ridden horse but very much have a type so everything reminded me of my old boy. In the end lockdown stopped me doing anything silly which gave me a chance to really think...

    Tough decision

    Whereabouts are you based? Perhaps someone might know of somewhere suitable?

    It's not just buyers that are timewasters!

    I understand that but you’ve mentioned several times that you think he’s unsound/physically compromised so it sounds like whatever you saw at the viewing was pretty apparent/serious. I’m not sure what the physio is likely to glean that couldn’t have been assessed via a video, unless the seller...

    It's not just buyers that are timewasters!

    But if he is as you believe physically compromised why does it matter the seller has now advertised him? You’ve said yourself you wouldn’t be willing to offer even half the sale price so it doesn’t sound like you’re serious about buying him whether he was £2k less than his advert or not.

    It's not just buyers that are timewasters!

    On the price front I do think these things are often negotiable if the right person comes along. For example my super wonderful fancy pants dressage horse was originally advertised for a lot more than we could ever afford. His owner was very specific about the kind of home they wanted for him...

    It's not just buyers that are timewasters!

    Judging by your OP it very much sounds like this horse wasn’t the one for you, and I suspect the seller possibly picked up on that at the viewing, so whilst I get it’s annoying for the goalposts to change after viewing them as others have said there’s really nothing to stop you offering the...

    Where to look for an ID?

    Yikes didn’t put two and two together until you said that!

    Where to look for an ID?

    Unfortunately we’re really looking for a gelding as we keep the horses at home and I have no idea how my youngster would be with a mare. There’s a couple I’m hoping to view next weekend if they’re still available by then but they’re nearly 5 hours away so hoping we might be able to find...

    Where to look for an ID?

    Ooh interesting, I’d be a bit apprehensive about calling her after the previous messages went unanswered just in case she felt hounded but if you have a number for her I might dig out my brave pants. Will also drop Rita a message. Thanks so much!

    Where to look for an ID?

    Yeah we’ve had similar, I’ve emailed and sent a PM on Facebook with no reply so figuring she’s stopped breeding for good now. Agree it’s a crying shame though as I’d have also bought unseen given half the chance. Hope teenage mum and baby are doing well x
