He is not worth $1000.00 and I don't like his markings at all, color not too bad, I just don't care for those funny spots.

Wow that is sad. I probably would have bought as many as I could have and would have been killed by my parents. But they are just babies, its not like they eat a lot. Poor things.

I agree. $500 is too much. I can get well bred, good looking weanlings for $500. You can't ride color!

Yeah, I probably wouldn't pay it either. I found a much better little guy for $300 and I don't even know what I would pay that for him. I would probably want to see his parents and really check him out before I decided what I would pay for him, but it would be a fool who would pay $1000 for him.

And truth is, that photo makes him look awkward. But, he's parked out, he's at a funny angle, and he's got his winter fuzzies. Not to mention he's just a BABY!

SO, to answer the OP's question, I think his color is very unique indeed, and he is a very rare true tri-color. :)
I agree with this......I didn't comment as I could not evalute this guy properly due to the angle of the picture....Thre may be a nice horse in there somewhere......I brought home a pretty ugly duckling .....3 month old pot bellied PMU and he is now 7 years old and absolutely lovely.....he could be a diamond in the rough

I seriously considered it - but at that time I didn't own a trailer (bought one a few weeks later) and really didn't have good facilities for babies. No more land than I have, I'm full up and then some now...

That stinks. I don't have a trailer either, but I'm sure I would have been able to beg someone for one. Lol. That's so... sad. I want to adopt a foal. I am really working on it. There is a place in Massachusetts that has foals that are Nurse foals so they are really young and you have to bottle feed them, but imagine the connection you would have with that foal after all that!
