Wow! Our horses for the production sale go for a lot more at CSU. Seems like it would be the other way around. We just had our sale about 2 weeks ago. Would it be safe to assume that she is some variation of dun going grey?

She may be, she may not be. As ND said, grey can act differently on all sorts of horses, and one thing it can do often is create the illusion of primitive markings, which are also known as dun factor when the horse has a dun gene.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

The horse market is just really down in Texas right now, so that's mostly the reason. Like I said, I'm 99% sure she's quarter horse since A&M bred her and since I know she's registered, she isn't a cross. She's only about 2 so she's kinda strung out and gangly at the moment.

Thanks and Gig'em!

I was going to say, $500-$1300 is really cheap, lol. I used to go to CSU (left to ride) and a friend of mine did one of the colt training classes and his filly sold for a pretty decent amount. I don't remember the number, but it was definitely over $1300.

They went for a lot this year, most successful apparently.

"The average price for all quarter horses in the sale was $5,376. The average price for young horses trained by CSU students was just over $4,000, according to sale records. The average price for aged horses was $7,424. Two horses brought $18,500 – a tie for high-seller."
