I figured out that if it says private treaty I won't be able to afford them :)...those tend to be in the 30K+ range wiith emphasis on the +. Why people won't just post desired prices is beyond wastes their time and mine just to find out the price is not in my affordable range. Sure, I'd love a 50K, PSG potential..can't afford it though.

I was looking at a potential in Washington state so the distance isn't really a major hurdle...right now there is nothing local.
And the fact that she's wearing an Oh Crap vest ! But she scores him a 4 on temperament.

I just sent an e-mail on Leonato...the ad actually has him as a 3 on temperament and a cost has now been added. 15K is my absolute outside limit and given distance it would be another 2K to have him vetted, x-rayed and shipped. (Yes already have quotes for distances on shipping :) from any number of states :)

Yeah, I saw Romeo, drooled and went on....:)

The trainer for the gelding just responded back...she says as soon as it quits raining long enough she will vid the laterals. She admits he needs more strength and balance at the canter but that his laterals are coming along. She also told me she is checking on some other horses int he area she knows are available and may suit to make my trip out more worthwhile. I already like this lady :) As she put it, she doesn't move a horse up until she feels he/she will make upper 60s..she says she likes to win :) and she only shows open division.

This guy has been for sale for a while - I saw him on Dressage Daily a few months ago, with nice video of dressage flatwork under a good male rider. I can't be certain but I think he was priced at $20000 then. Now $15000 negotiable to good home. This ad shows only a jumping vid. I quite liked him back then. Wonder what the story is. Hmmm. "Digital x-rays from 2011 and 2012". Must be something not so good there, but they are jumping him PA, though - worth a call. I really liked him, not as an FEI horse, but as a big flashy WB sweetheart with nice basics.

I liked the work that trainer was doing with Striker. Looking forward to more vid. I am just having a hard time picturing him collecting.

Dhijon was one of the first I e-mailed about; he has been sold..guess they STILL haven't updated the ad. Have come across a few of those in the mad search.....the x-rays were just a precaution and there weren't any worries..just annual checks and to have something on hand ready to show to potential buyers. As they put it they wanted to be 100% honest.
