Heck, yeah!! The economy in the states is AWFUL (recession much?). You can find trained geldings for yearling price! Out of curiousity what is your price range, ball park it?

Private owners would be generic places like dreamhorse, equine, agdirect, horseville, horsetopia, equinenow, equine hits, warmbloods-for-sale et cetera...

I'm actually hit by this bad economy too. I've been looking for a forever home for TJ, by private treaty w/contract & 1st Right of Refusal. His price is weanling price to a hand picked home. *sigh* Sue at Legacy Friesians has him listed for me on her "Other Horses For Sale Page". There's pictures of him in "my barn". You can also find history, pictures and video of him here:

Message Board - Tjitse *under saddle*

However I'm in no hurry to see him go. It's just how it is.

Let's say, for argument sake, my price range is up to $15,000.
I would pay that for an OUTSTANDING weanling/yearling, and a nice 2y/o.
If I were looking at an older horse, I think I would expect to pay more.

Legacy Friesians - filly named Cerah

I also highly recommend Legacy Friesians- I bought a friesian from them myself.
You can tell they really care about the breed because their website is so packed with information to help people learn.

Look at their stallion page where you can look at the breeding values from every stallion in the USA plus the top stallions in Holland:
FPS approved stallions available in the USA

Here they have all the new rankings of the top performing stallions based on offspring
KFPS Breeding Values Dec 2008

Here they have helpful articles on the friesian breed
About the Friesian Breed


Plus look at the filly Cerah, she's by Jasper 366, the #2 ranked stallion for only $10,000, in Seattle WA. Isn't that close to you?
Cerah
She's really something! It seems like they update their website almost every day with something new.

Actually, Annika, I have my eye on Cerah. She's the one that caught my eye right off the bat :)
Thank you for your input, it's great to hear from people that have dealt with them.

Yeah, with the way the economy is effecting folks down here, you could get a nice, green-broke young horse for 15k (or, as Mirror said, an older horse from a private owner). There are definitely deals to be had, you just have to be ready to move quickly on them. I've seen prices in this area come down 5-10k in the last year or so, its been pretty dramatic

For a baby, I think you can find a really nice one for well under 15...I'm not sure I would ever have gone that high, even when the market was GOOD several years ago. There is so much risk involved in growing a horse to adulthood. Colts will generally be cheaper than fillies. Some people also raise the price for youngsters that were 1st premie or champion at their foal keuring, which I think is utter hogwash.

The only horses I haven't seen effected by the economy are those with a higher amount of training (say, 2nd or 3rd level dressage and up). You will still pay top dollar for a trained dressage horse or a well-bred, productive broodmare.

amazing deal

There is an amazing deal on a pregnant mare who is a good trail riding horse for $12,000
Horses that are For Sale By Owner
Look for Ilske (the photo is of a trail ride in the water)
If you ever wanted a friesian, with the economy so bad- now is the time to get one.

Friesians of Majesty. He is a great Gelding even lets her little kids (who are under 5) ride him.

I didn't see anyone suggest the Friesian Connection.

They have Mintse 384 Sport *Drools*

Welcome to the Friesian Connection - Sale Horses and Breeding

And one day I'll own a Nanning baby.
