Would you do it?

ok I have always wanted a clyde but never thought i could ever afford one, but today i happened to stumble upon one just minuites after the lady put it up for sale. Its a filly comming on 2 in may, halter broke, leads, ties, and loads, need a little work picking up feet but not much. She is like a puppy dog and loves attention so im told. Sounds great for me.Im getting my belgian back in about a month or so and I know i have to do ground work with him before i attempt to ride him again and so getting her now i'll get to bond a bit before he comes home. I'm going to see her tomarrow. What i'm doing is i sold two stud colts that i was misinformed about before treking a 5 hour drive for and well i can t touch them so i have them sold and the lady is picking them up this weekend so i'll have the money for her then. I do not plan on having her broke to ride till shes about three so i'll have plenty of time to get her ready. I have always wanted a clyde and i kinda feel like its destiny. would you go for it? heres a pic of her i think shes beautifull.

Well it really depends. I see a lot of Clydes through the auction here near me, some younger, some older, that are broke to ride, so I'm not one to say either way. If she works for you and you have time and the price is good, then sure, why not. Clydes are great horses, but they are big so be sure to keep handling her so that she learns good habits and keeps them!

They are only asking $350 for her. I am an at home mom and my oldest is getting ready to start school, i have a wounderfull husband who is not interested in horses but is ok with my passion and he watches the kids anytime i want to go outside to play with them. I plan on getting my round pin and working with both of them alot, its kinda my escape from kids and stuff. I'm really excited. ANd like i said for that price i feel like god has put it in front of me and i would be stupid not to take it. Thanks everyone.

At $350 I would go for it! Not sure you would get one much cheaper than that even at an auction and if you did it wouldn't be by much.

I wouldn't pass her up! WOW that's cheap, there's not many around me and so they're not anywhere close to that cheap! And she's very cute :)

Good luck with her! I wouldn't be concerned about her size. What a lot of people don't realize is that ALL horses are stronger than you. ALL horses are bigger, and that you can not out strength any of them. The horse, regardless of the breed must be trained and willing to do what you want. I am not saying this to discourage you but to encourage you. If you have trained other horses, then this girl shouldn't be a problem.
