I see Arabian in the face. I'm not great at body type but it's definitely there in the face.

As for pricing, it depends on where you are. Where I am, from those photos, it is too much. I got my foal for $1000, and my adult horse for $2000 - now, my horses are not ideal conformation-wise, but Satin is a really nice foal and Monty is well educated, if not without his faults.

I am in georgia (country). Here are very few arabians, I could find only this. Her owner said that it's 100% arabian but I don't think that she looks like arabian.

I actually don't like full Arabs. I have two part-breds and they are brilliant horses but I'm not into the pures.

I looked back at your first post and at 18 months her faults may correct, but I have seen much nicer full Arabs that are her age sell for much less (I have a friend whose mother just got out of breeding them because of a series of disasters).

I'm in Australia though, not even the same country as you, so our horse market is very different. In a strong market it isn't possible to get quality, registered youngstock for less than $5000. In the current market there are numerous VERY nice yearlings and two-year-olds for sale for $1000 and even less - as I said that's what I paid for my yearling and she is LOVELY, but unregistered, and I don't know if she can be.

If you want a full Arab, then don't buy one without papers, because there's no guarantee. If you want a horse that looks like an Arab, then papers don't matter. The most "Arab type" horse I ever saw was only 25% Arab.

This particular filly is VERY Araby in the face and croup, not so much in the ears (my filly is more Araby in the ears than that and I don't know her percentage). I wouldn't put it past a seller (any seller, including someone who you trust) to be lying and in this case, her supposed blood status could be the truth or a lie. I have seen full Arabs that were less typey than her, and part Arabs more typey.

There are people on here who are very much into the pure Arabs and who will be able to tell you more. I only have partbreds and what I know is what I've learned from my friend whose mother used to breed them - and that's only one strain (Crabbet Arabs). That one strain, by the way, is the only strain of purebred Arabs I like. They have substance to them, unlike the finer "showring" type Egyptian lines.

In my experience full siblings are no indication on how a young horse will turn out. I had a little unregistered Welsh gelding and we also looked at his full brother. You couldn't get two more different ponies, the only thing they had in common is that they were both grey. Our pony was really solid, lazy and quiet, and his full brother was hot, fizzy, forward, and very fine-boned.

However, it would be very easy to think that the young filly and her sister were the same horse at different stages of maturity. The only thing that really gave it away is that the older sister is somewhat better put together in the chest and shoulder.

I personally would say, don't buy the filly you're looking at. You have your heart set on an Arab, and that's fine, but if it was me looking at this filly, I would keep looking.

I think it's too much to pay for her unless her lines are impressive and she has some showing experience and has won some ribbons already. If she's registered, look at her lines through the AHA website. If she's not, well...I'd keep looking to be honest. Nothing about her says exceptional (which is what she'd need to be to be worth $1500 in this market) and there are no pictures of her in motion.

Many purebred Arabians look weedy at 1.5 years of age. It's not indicative of how they'll mature.

I don't know if she's purebred, but she's certainly at least half Arabian. She may be purebred, just not very typey.

As far as her price, it depends on supply and demand in your area. Since you live in Georgia the country and not Georgia the US state, I have no clue about pricing.

Because you said Arabians are rare in your part of the world, you'll need to do some comparison shopping. Find out what Arabians are going for, and make your decision based on that.
