Thanks so much, but he is only fifteen. He actually had his birthday today! We did get check him and he turned out to be great only has a minor issue with his right lead because of balencing issues. Even though that was expected because he is an OTTB.
Did you do a pre purchase with a vet? I think at that age one would be important, more so you know what issues you will be dealing with (and there will be issues in older horses). I don’t mean get one to rule out this horse, like you would for a younger competition horse, but for your peace of mind (and wallet lol) so you know their limitations and the cost to you now and in the future.
I have an older companion horse (32) and he requires several meals a day of forage cubes( soup) and he cannot have treats to prevent choking. He cannot be ridden due to arthritis. BE READY TO CALL FOR THE VET 24/7. You never know with older horses. Have a lot of money set aside for the vet
