He looks pretty good. I think he's a bit overpriced but that depends on horse values in your area. At 3 he can't be considered a solid trail horse as he still has a young mind. Handsome boy. Let us know after you try him out.

I would like to see him without a saddle and video of him doing more than just trotting.

What would you plan to do with him? They don't seem like they are solid on price (listed for $200 more on the youtube video) so they may go even lower.

Thanks...I found out that this person is a horse trader and in our area, that is a "no no". They don't keep horses long enough to really work with them, they buy them cheap and sell them high.

I am actually looking at a haflinger this weekend.

The only issue I am having with the haflinger is that he is listed as "bay", otherwise he looks pretty nice.

I wouldn't give up on the black just because a dealer has him. I would be more cautious and get a PPE. I would take cash start my offer at 1/2 what they want.

He is actually a really cute horse. See if you can talk her down on the price, $1,500 would be fair.

My uncle is a "horse dealer", sure he get's bad horses but gets just as many good horses. Buying from a horse dealer isn't the end of the world, plus usually horse dealers are more negotiable on the price over a private seller because they don't have the emotional attraction. Not saying there aren't bad horse dealers because there are plenty of them! But don't dislike all of them just because of some.

I let the owner know when I talked to her tonight. She said she wasn't aware of that and that she must have picked the wrong color before placing the ad. She said he is a golden palomino color. I am going to look at him Sunday and she is sending me more pictures as well.

Nope, I don't have anything against all horse traders We just have some very shady ones around us and the ones who have Ace have built up a reputation as selling horses that are sane for about 24 hours and spazz out after that. We have another one who claimed to have papers on a baby colt and then conveniently couldn't find them. Owner found out baby was never registered and is getting very frustrated. It's been 6 months since she bought the baby and no papers yet
