What's her intended use?

OH Jeez, never mind. With that Spine sticking up lack that, there is no use for her until she gains a bunch of weight.

These photos aren't good for critiquing. Ask the owners to send you photos on her standing square from the side front and back.

She looks to be on the skinny side IMO. Either she isn't being fed enough, she's a hard keeper or she could have some GI problems.

I usually put them on YouTube then put the link on the thread.

8500? What are you getting for that exactly? Pedigree? Show record? Training? We need more info.

What is she trained to do? Collecting nicely isn't worth &8,500, there are $200 horses sitting in the auction house who can do that . Do you want to show? What are your goals with her? What has this horse done to make her worth $8,500.

I find one if the best ways to see is a horse is worth is to go onto dreamhorse.com and do a simple search. Put in your area and $8500. What comes up? Are they just like this mare, worse or better? It should give you a pretty good feel on what you can get for your money and what you should expect for the price tag. Obviously you have to use common sense, for example a horse marked down for a quick sale shouldn't be counted

A spine that is sticking up like that one is a WHOLE lot more than just "lacking muscle". $8500? I just laughed so hard I fell off my chair.

$8500? For a horse with THAT spine? Holy crap.

Run away. Don't even walk...Run. You can find a much better horse then this one for $8500.
