Well, if I were raising horses and trying to sell some colts I myself had raised, I'd make sure they were in the best possible condition to sell, so I had a good name. That colt looks like she threw her in the pasture and didn't give a fig about her til someone was interested in buying her. Just my opinion.

I know. Do you think this filly will have any health problems in the future from what you guys can tell??

I don't like the looks of her legs at all, the muscle will probably get better with time and good eatins, but you can't change bone. It would worry me if she really is turned out with those long pasterns that her entire leg is weak all the way around, I'm not an expert though.

I think with time she will grow into them more but like trainer said I would not be willing to take a chance on something like that. I totally missed her legs my first look, I was too caught up in her feet I guess.

She has been left to run the mountain all summer into late fall, then the herd was driven down to the winter pasture where she could feed them and halter break them. I used to have pictures of her sire as a colt, and his legs were all long and gaingly like hers are. I'll obviously have a vet check her out before I follow through with the purchase. It's just that I love her personality!

Well, you are going to do what you think is right. I am incredibly hard to sway as well, but I would look around a bit more. I don't know how much she is asking for this filly, but if she took her to a horse sale around me, she'd bring about $100 papered, if that. She just isn't a looker and is weak in several areas. I'd hate to think of loping across a pasture on my horse and have its leg snap or something similar, I'd never trust her legs any more than to walk or trot around.

She's asking $450... If the vet says she's okay, I'll purchase her. I really love her, even though she's a lil homely!

Im a little confused, you said you want her because you love her personality but if you can't nor have you seen her in person there's no way for you to know what kind of personality she has. Unless you see her in person I wouldn't buy her. Imho she's an under cared for backyard filly who probably hasn't had all that much handling. Im also pretty sure you said shed be your first horse?? Id really advise something already well trained if that's the case. Buying a youngster is basically a shot in the dark, even more so if you've never raised a yearling before. Good luck with what you decide.

I help my aunt and neighbors raise their yearlings and we've leased once before. So, not too big a case of green + green = black and blue. A hauler we've worked with in the past met her this past week an I trust his judgement. He says she has great personality
