Possible buy- Unbroken 3YO

Would appreciate your help with this guy.

You can see more pictures up at the top, I know they're not the best, but that's all I have available right now... I think he's handsome as hell aha!

He's out of a stallion called Sungold- never heard of it before! And Dams side is D lines

Rappe, Dressurpferd, Damenpferd, Youngstar

Thanks :)

He's pretty but his hind end looks odd. That may be the angle of the photo, though.

Pretty face but I agree, that hind end scares me and they've not put any side on pictures??? Trying to hide something maybe?

These are you're average pictures out here haha, infact they're better than most!

In which case, there is the reason for the very good price.

No problems, thanks for your help guys!- I am useless at confo!

3500 euro doesn't seem like much for a posh warmblood with lots of dressage potential and good bloodlines, but I'm not at all tuned into the horse market at the moment. That's what I would be expecting to pay for a top end, nicely bred, well put together green native. LOL.

Then again, it seems that posh warmbloods are a dime a dozen in Germany, more so than the UK or US.

I liked the look of the last one you posted in your other thread.

Now Sophie, is he over 17.2hh? Because those are some looooong legs! In Aus, I reckon he'd be marketing for at least $20 000 - I wish WBs were as dime a dozen as the TBs are over here!

As for conformation, he's gota nice shoulder, good depth through his girth and his legs appear to be clean and straight - maybe a touch toed in on the left fore but that could be how he was standing for the photo. His neck comes out a little flat, but if he can bend his hocks then you can get away with that.
I wonder though if he is either built a little downhill, or with a weak 'engine' due to their lack of clear side shots that are usually common practice when selling a horse as a potential sport horse. His back looks quite straight from this angle... I would definitely be asking for video, or AT LEAST a clear side on shot on a flat surface.

3500 for an unbroken from a breeder is alright-ish, and sometimes you CAN get diamonds in the rough- you just have to look at the plain hard facts rather than letting the seller try and win you over etc.

Once the horse has 90 days under saddle, you're looking at double, sometimes triple price o.0

Which I don't have- I just have to wait and see for now.. need to sell Duffy first, but always a good idea to keep an eye on the market to see what isn't selling because there is generally a reason ;)

And the prices.

I have two options.

Go cheaper and buy an unbroken 3yo, or save for a couple of months and buy something with a bit of life experience.

I think I need to go for option 2 to be honest, because I'm a wuss! And something that is already sane under saddle will make me be able to crack on with riding, and my mum can ride too, which I really want. Ee, we will see!

Nope, he is 160cm so JUST 16hh!!

If he is still up, I will ask when Duffy is truly sold and I don't get any comeback, but he sure is a looker, and I was thinking for that price might be worth taking a look at!

There are LOADS out here right now though, I'm almost wanting to enquire about a Trakehner, 4yo, looks like it moves well, but its POA, so I dropped the price bracket down and it was still going under 900 which is NOT usual, so unless they accidently priced him wrong (this happened once when I phoned up for a horse priced at 5k and it was meant to be 50k xD) we will see! I'm looking, if I sell, pay off loan and save for three months, to have about 7k to play with!
