    Default Camelot Horse said to be a 3'6" jumper...anyone know him? He needs a good home!

    This horse is on the Camelot Horse weekly list, had been sold but the buyer backed out. He's said to be a former 3'6" horse with a winning career. Maybe someone here knows him and would like to bring him home? He looks sweet, but I can't have/don't need another horse:

    If their page changes by the time you visit, he's a bay gelding, hip #281, 7 years old.

    If they know that much about him they should post his show name so that people who know him might step forward. And for those interested in him to know that he really did show

    Apparently he was sold but has become available again. I do appreciate what groups like this are trying to do but I can't help but feel like they are encouraging the problem.

    No, he is back in the sold folder again. There are no horses currently in the available folder.

    He certainly doesn't look 7 or sound enough to jump 3'6 with those fetlocks. Poor guy. I hope he finds a soft spot to land.

    I think it encourages the flooding of the market and also pays off the kill buyers more.

    I'm awfully glad he's sold again. But really Rebels Princess what do you mean by "flooding the market"? The Camelot horses were already at a livestock auction, Camelot just buys those that have a chance of getting a home and markets them for a small profit. Breeding floods the marketby creating new horses that did not previously exist. These horses are already partof the market.
