It's not the best photo but here's a pic of a mare I'm looking at, coming 4yo 16hh TB (of course!) and the owner is willing to take $800, which is what I'm getting for Satin.

She's had some significant amount of flatwork, and she's started over jumps and showing a lot of promise.

Have you tried Horse Deals? I did quick search for you and have a link to a list of results :) I hope this helps your search :)

Horses For Sale, Buy a Horse - Horse Deals

PS. I love the look of the first one, there is something about his face that melts my heart!

Thanks :) There are very VERY few horses in horse deals that are in my state unfortunately! Most of them are in the other states. State-specific (or state-based) sites are much more productive for me.

EDIT; I told the owner of the first horse no... he is just stunning but he's quick through the canter and horses like that terrify me... have been bolted on FAR too many times... so not knowing the horse, not being ABLE to go ride him first, I can't justify the risk when I know that his canter is likely to frighten me.

Satin's sale fell through but I have another prospective owner lined up... just won't get the money as quickly so at the moment I have to look at REAL cheapies.

This one I have no idea of price, but I saw it on a FB group (with no info at all, but looks like a mare to me?) and YUM. It's a coming 5yo going by brand (very nearly 5) but other than that I know absolutely nothing other than that I really like it.

Thanks :) I know about the lease one, but I'm a bit wary of him just because there's something about his trot that says to me he's maybe not quite sound... not sure what it is! Am considering the other two you posted as well :)

The really nice one above (the chestnut with the leg wraps on) I found out is outside budget :/ oh well!

Am hopefully going to be going to look at a 2010 filly soonish, that's been advertised on FB but as far as I know nowhere else. She's free to a good home and very close to me so I figure she's worth a look.

Am definitely going to look at the 2010 filly. TOMORROW. Early.

Will keep you posted, and will have both my phone's batteries fully charged so I can get lots of pics.

Thanks :)

Filly's sire is a stallion called Hartley Spirit (by Danetime), known in the TB industry to throw large, solid foals with good conformation and nice temperaments (known to be easy to handle and break) that mature late (for TB's) and therefore don't run well as 2yo's but are usually handy 3yo's. I'm not looking for a racehorse but what that means is that she's well-bred so could be a nice broodmare later on down the track.

Filly herself is a chestnut with 3 high white socks (not quite stockings) and a star and stripe, expected to mature around 16hh. I will be taking a good look at her feet in particular (am an amateur barefoot trimmer so I know some about hoof structure) and her legs and joints.

Filly's dam is a mare called Veirtry, or something similar (I'm wondering if they mean verity as have found no mares matching any other variation of veirtry on the aus studbook), and IF it's the mare I found called Verity, she's by a stallion called Proven Valour out of a mare called Tallan Fair... I will look into that line further if I have the right horse. (edit, I looked into it anyway, and there's nothing in there that I've heard of)

EDIT; Hartley's Spirit, by Danetime who is by Danehill who is by Danzig who is by Northern Dancer. Impressive sire line.

Filly is MINE (pending pick-up)

She's very wary, not fearful just cautious. And she is HUGE... 15.3+ already, and very immature so she has a huge amount of growing to do yet. She's still a real babyfaced littleun, so I think I'll leave her at least another year before I break her.

Turns out I do have the right mare for filly's dam, it is the '91 model of Verity. The girl herself is unnamed, but I already have a name in mind for her, AND a show name.

Sooo, meet Magic, aka 2close2dasun :) She's a 2010 TB filly by Hartley's Spirit (AUS, 2003), from Verity (AUS, 1991), and is expected to mature 16hh+ (though I'm thinking closer to 16.2-16.3+ with the size of her now and the size of her sire). Excuse the dreadful pic, I will get better ones once I have her home.
