She does look Arabian. In your country, if Arabians are hard to find, 1500 may be a reasonable amount. Is she the only one you've found available?

The market here is very bad now. Unregistered- about $500 or less; Registered, $500-$1000 for a young filly untrained, unless they come from exceptional lines. With well known Sires/Dams/breeding or a show career they may bring much more.

Registered, supposedly well-bred Arabians are going to slaughter left and right. Situations like this: 100+ Registered Arabians in TX headed to slaughter in 14 days! | Facebook crop up all the time. You can get very nice, purebred horses for a few hundred bucks (or less, like even free!) if you know where to look.

That said, this is the US, not Australia....

There is a drought in Texas and there is little doubt that you can get free horses there all day long. I think that most everybody agrees that it just depends on the market in your area what price you should pay. One thing to consider, when you buy a baby, you will have to pay a LOT more money than your original investment before you begin to ride. You have all the feed, hoof care, veterinary care, and other such expenses. Then there is the training expense. The last horse I bought was a foal, but in the future, I will take my money and buy a horse that is ready to ride. There are just too many unknowns with young horses. The horse you are looking at may turn out to be a great horse or she may not. She is pleasant looking, but she has a long way to go before she grows up. If you really like her and you think that you can get your money back out of her if she doesn't work out, then she may be worth buying. In my town, horses are going pretty cheaply right now.

Carpe Diem!

I think she definitely looks araby. Her body reminds me of a thinner mare we have but with a way cuter head haha. Now I think you should ask them what she has had done with her as far as ground work and such. Also ask if you can see the parents or if they knew who the parents were, chances are if they have her sister they know the parents and they know what she is. 1500 is alot to ask however it depends on the area as stated before.

just a small town girl with a big town dream :]

She looks a lot like a Arab/Morgan cross. I'm almost positive that's what she is.

She definitely looks Arabian to me. As far as price, it would definitely depend on her breeding and if she has papers. You can find some really nice Arabs for next to nothing in this market. As far as her looks, Arabs are slow to mature and it is not uncommon for them to look gangly at 1.5 years old. I had a really well bred yearling that I almost gave away as a yearling, but matured into an incredibly beautiful horse. :)

Arabian, or arabian cross at least. I wouldnt believe whole heartedly in FULL unless there are papers. But not too much if this breed is hard to find in ur area, assuming she IS full arab.

My mare is 1/4th arab and she looks more arab than her 1/2 arab dad. And her brother is also 1/4th and he looks more arab than both of them.

I believe she's an Arabian. She's just not a great example of a GOOD Arabian and I would not pay $1500 for her if she was the only Arabian in Slovenia. Sorry! Does she have papers and if so can you post a copy of her pedigree here? Most likely she's going to be Polish bred and depending on her lines she could be bred from Racing lines which are not necessarily bred for their looks.
