Ok, so I'll be honest...my boyfriend is always my "voice of reason," so you generally never want me to try and sway you from getting any animal. LoL, I would have a zoo if my b/f didn't always calmly have me weigh the options.
That being said, I'll just tell you what he would say...
First off, I assume you have the space/time/finances for the mare, so we'll skip that... :) That's the first question I would get.
Anyways...concerns: -why is her tail...I don't really know, eaten off?
-why is she sooo thin? I know walkers are slender, but this concerns me...
-like everyone else, I am concerned not about her height, but the fact that they would lie about something silly like
that. makes you wonder what else they could be dishonest about?
-how did they have access to a friesian - which is usually an expensive horse - if they can't (seem to)
afford to keep the mare well-fed?
Ok, so here's what I say:
With the economy like it is, that price is not ridiculously low, especially if she's not registered. I got my mare (registered, 3 year old) for only $800. The market just sucks right now. As far as her height being off, maybe they just "guess-timated" and don't know a lot about horses? I think maybe these people haven't taken the *best* care of her, which makes me want you to go get her. :) I think she looks very pretty, besides being a skinny girl, and I agree that she is not old at all...and she seems to have a sweet face. :) So, go see her and tell us how it goes!
