I am looking to buy another horse, and I have my eyes locked onto four of em. I know, I know, I can't even fit four more in my barn. So unfortunately I have to choose one. I'm stuck. What do you guys think on their conformation and stuff? I plan on using it for ranch work, and trails, and a little bit of road-journeying. So nothing too strenuous.
First up is an 11 year old French Canadian Mare that I'm absolutely IN LOVE WITH. She's 16 hands and RUGGED. A little over weight but nothing a little work can't fix.. Broke to western. They want $1250 for her and are selling because they can't take care of her anymore.
Second is a beautifully put together Registered Quarter Horse Mare. I love her build, absolutely love it. She's five years old and broke to western.
And third, a thirteen year old grade mare they are selling for $300. Broke but not ridden for 2 years. Almost fifteen hands. I don't really like her, but I feel bad for her. She's underweight and I can see her spine, she looks like a sweetheart. Her legs look a tad strange as well.
And fourth, a real beaut. She's three years old, broke for trails in western apparel. Sire is Percheron/Quarter Horse, and dam was standardbred. 15 hands and still growing. The owners are retiring and want to sell her for $750. I think she's going to be a steal of a deal.
