I have to agree...sorry OP....there are so many people giving away great horses for practically nothing you could probably buy a foal for a lot cheaper....neither sire nor dam have a show record that you have mentioned and it would just make another cross breed (not saying there is anything wrong with grades...just there are already so many good ones needing homes....)
