Should I buy a half arab?

I would like some input on whether it would be a good idea or not to buy this horse.

He's a 4yr old Bay/white Pinto Half-Arabian gelding and he's 15hh. And he's $15,000

Here's some pics:

Why do you want another horse?

I think he's pretty! He doesn't have an ugly dish face and his color is nice. He looks very kind in his eye. How is his behavior? Is he a nerotic half arab or a calmer half arab?

I don't agree with your decision at all. You can't by a 15,000 dollar horse just for Janie. Like I said I don't agree at all....

Can you even afford to buy this horse in the first place?!

He's a cutie, but something looks a smidge off in his front legs. I dunno, maybe it's the pictures or maybe it's just me, lol.

But there's no way I'd pay 15 thousand for a companion/lesson horse. He seems like he's more of a "show horse."

You can find a cute Half Arab for alot less.
I love my Half Arab gelding to death and he cost less than 2 grand.

I believe she said in another post that her parents financially support her horse habit, so I suppose they can.

You said you're interested in this gelding as a companion and lesson horse, correct? He's only four years old! As a companion, I think he may get bored (especially since it looks like he's already in show-mode). And personally, depending on the horse, I wouldn't really put lesson kids on such a young horse. Of course, it all depends on his personality.

He's half Arab, what's the other half?

Agreed. There are many very nice Half Arabs that are more suitable as a companion horse and more reasonably priced. There's no point in buying a $15,000 show prospect for a companion...it'd be a waste of his potential.

Wow...he's expensive!
But soo beautiful! Very stunning!
But hey, I agree...he is a bit expensive to be a lesson horse...I mean he looks like he'd do better for someone who is showing.

No way I would pay 15k for that horse, especially if you're looking for a companion, but also, there is no way he's done anything at that age that makes him worth that much money.
