Just wondering

Does this horse look like it is worth $145, 000? She seems to have nice movement but I don't think she is that nice.

DreamHorse.com Horse ID: 1481982 - EM Donatella HW

I know this horse and he know piaffe, passage, etc. and has extremely good ground manners. Actually, on Monday I was walking him out and playing around with him...

The first horse you posted is 8 and confirmed at 4th, schooling PSG. The second horse is 12 and confirmed PSG. That and the breeding of the first horse is enough to justify the $45,000 price difference.

As Anebel said, a horse at 8 that is training PSG with ability to progress and with SUPER bloodlines is certainly going to be worth more than a 12 year old at the same level with average lines.
Then there's the added extra of having the option to breed the mare who has very strong lines.
Definitely worth the extra money.

that second horse is rockstar! He's gorgeous to watch move, and has a stunning extended trot. I didn't know they were selling him....
But ya, what kayty and anabel said... Even though that first horses poll looks stiff as a board. Maybe that's just me

Well I talked to the owner of the second one and she said she could sell him for 150 but doesn't want to because the economy is in the dumps.

In my opinion I think she could, I don't know a whooolleee lot, but he is a super nice horse. Extends like a dream. Haha

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.
