I could buy that kind of horse here too for that amount of money (10 year old kid's horse winning in 4H), but I don't want another stock horse that has 10 years of someone else's training. I like the horses around here well enough, but not enough to want to own one long term. Every person is entitled to their own idea of a dream horse, mine has not been effected by other horses that I have owned in the past. I love the markings and color, but the conformation and disposition are more important.

I say if you feel drawn to this filly and are willing to pay that price for her go right ahead :) it's your money spend it however you want. Sounds like she's your dreamhorse so she's definitely worth looking into! You don't have to justify anything. I think she is beautiful too. I wish you luck!

She is a super cute Morab. Her pedigree link didn't work though. How far north of the border are you? I am going up to Spokane, Washington near the beginning of June. That is where my parents live and I wasn't able to visit during the holidays so I will be there for awhile after my kids get out of school for the summer.

I agree with Amymarie- if you haven't been able to find what you really want, and she's it, then follow your dream. If you can give her a good, loving home, and she's sound, meets your expectations, and you see her clearly, buy her.

I understand wanting to start your own young horse. That's my preference as well. All of mine I have bought green. I prefer it.

Pedigree link is probably my fault. Still learning the ropes of website building... lol
Here it is: Flash N Khrome Morab
I'm about eight hours from the Alberta/Montana border.

I was going to get some updated pictures of her on days off (I may try again this time) but she was really... fat. LOL

Try contacting Susan Bates at Stormhaven Farms in Caldwell, ID. Hopefully she's not too far from you. She has some PHENOMENAL youngsters for sale and they are not humungously overpriced. They come from National Champion stock, she even owns one horse who was a Brazilian national champ. She has some youngsters that you not only could show 4H and open if you want, you could easily take them to Nationals if you desired it.

I also would verify Susan Bates as a stellar woman to deal with. She has integrity, honor, and ethics.. and a joy to talk with...

Honestly, I may get in trouble for this but if you guys want more info on Elements Arabians go to the free speech horse forum(fhotd64476.yuku.com) and do a search. The results are NOT pretty.
