I rarely get involved in these "what do you think" threads because generally, if the person has to ask the question, they shouldn't be buying the horse.
This thread is an exception to that
They do want a tremendous amount of money for her - way more than I would pay but to play Devil's Advocate:
1. I REALLY appreciate they were smart enough to show Gypsy being tacked up. Her body language and ear position were great during the entire process.
2. She is a willing mover and appears to be a somewhat forward mover (big motored horse) which is straight down my alley but might not be to others. To a somewhat timid/fearful rider she may give the sense she's trying to run away when she isn't.
3. She doesn't like the mailboxes - I caught a couple side steps at two o them and I'm sure she's passed them many times.
4. BUT #3 got completely cancelled out with all the traffic. Especially she gets many cudos for not even flicking an ear when that a** in the small pickup almost ran them over. The moron had to put the binders on to the point of his tires smoking.
All of that could put the calmest of horses in a tailspin but Gypsy never waivered. THAT alone added a whole big bunch of money to her value. Negatives:
1. She is a gorgeous Palomino and while I once owned a Palomino I know part of Gypsy's price point is her color. She is "Lit Up" to coin a phrase where I live and Lit Up always equals more money than if the same horse were bay, sorrel or chestnut red.
2. When Gypsy first came out of the barn, I thought I could see a little hitch in her left hind. I didn't notice anything through out the video, so it could be just the way she was hesitating, not sure what quite what the rider was going to ask of her, since a camera person was there.
3. In her case, I'm not saying she isn't worth $7,200 and I'm not saying she is. But Gyspy, IMHO falls into the slim category of whatever the market will bear and if the right Owner comes along they might think they stole this horse at $7,200.
Taking the money out of the picture would I buy her if I were in the market? Yes if she were a gelding because that business with the smoking tires pick up really impressed me.
Plus she's a racker so there's some nice speed there (or should be) as long as nobody abuses that speed and she ends up road foundered or with leg/ankle arthritis over the long term.
But she's a mare, I don't "do" mares, so I would never have inquired in the first place
Hope this helps
