It's not down it has gone but slow. That's what was meant with the initial post.

He's real cute and also seems to be well behaved. Too bad the market is the way it is and it is pretty much already saturated with horses for sale.

We have a purebred arab gelding with excellent bloodlines for sale now for $900 and haven't had any takers. We just had him gelded, so we won't even get our investment back after stud fees and vet costs.

Arab x POA - I would say no more than $1000 in this area. It sounds like he is worth more to you than that.

Most of the Arab people I know around here don't like the "spotties". Personally, I love them and think the colt is gorgeous, but I don't think he would be well liked in most show rings.

If he's gelded, and started under saddle (so in a few years), he'd probably make a good kids prospect. If he can do that.. then his price would go up. Right now, even SEs arent' selling well. Not many horses are. I've seen well broke sweeps nominated geldings that are child broke, both HA and PB, going for under $2000, and some have had regional wins. I saw some with National wins for under $4000.

So unfortunately, in this market... well, if you're lucky, you won't have to pay someone. Unless they are National contenders, with a picture perfect pedigree (generations of winning to back it up) and darn near perfect, people aren't getting much, especially for unbroke prospects. But, in a few years (if the market turns and he gets some training), he could be a pretty nice gelding and go for a lot more.

Foals like him, I've seen lately selling between $200-$400. I've seen some given away. And it's not jsut in one general area, it's across the country right now.

Spotties can do well after being saddle trained for kids. Kids love the spots. Pinto, appy, palomino, etc. Anything flashy. But getting there is a long process. And prices are dropping daily as the price of feed goes up. So for people who want to buy low and can afford to wait out the market, it's a good time to buy.

Probably around $600 or less in my area. He's not registered is it? Since he's half Arab and half POA? Or did I get that wrong?

My area isn't big on Arabs, you hardly see ANY in this area. I personally know 1 Arab. And I knew some good QH colts that were going for REAL cheap.

The markets bad and people in my area like finished horses.

Darn, I really wish he were a purebred!
He is darn cute!

Is he registered, Charriot?

You can get good money for one - or break even - but like it's been said above, you may have to hold onto him for a bit.

I've got a purebred registered Arab colt, Khaper:



Here's his pedigree:

http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/khanadian+khaper
I've had lots of people asking, but no takers so far, and I'm asking $1800.00
Granted, I do think their age had a lot to do with it.
Nobody really wants a young colt or filly right now.

So, I guess if he were mine I'd probably price him between $1200-$1500 range and see what happens.
You could price him higher and get it, but you may be holding onto him though.

But gosh darn, I love his little face in that first picture!

PS - I wouldn't go Pintabian either. ;) LOL
