Over all the colt looks nice. He is a bay not dun. I like the dam. Looks like she has produced well. Sire is not bad. I do not think that $1500 is bad at all considering what the dam has produced. Looks like several of her foals have reining points/earnings. Would have to look her up to see exactly how much but reining prospects bring good money.
As to the cost of buying a prospect vs a finished horse. That can vary. It will depend on dicipline breeding and how well the horse shows vs how well the prospect may show. You can buy a finished reiner for under $10K however those horses are not going to put you in the big money at any show. You might do OK with them in the green reiner but they are going to be lucky to mark a consistent 68-69. Vs a weanling who has the potencial of marking better. If the horse does then he will be work a lot more then that.
