Price is the only problem I see. Never once have I simply said wow nice color, but here it is. I'd price her at 2000 in this market except for her color on top of a super set of legs adds another 1000, as it is on a horse that deserves to be marketed that way. I'd imagine that if the seller took 3000, she'd be losing about 1000 but that's the market right now and I bet you can find the same thing for much less.

Welcome to my world! I bought a horse that was way overpriced because I loved him, was a loud paint like that mare too.

Price and they're selling her as a "rare" buckskin paint. I've seen two or three buckskin paints in my area just in the past five or six months on Craigslist, and I used to work with a little buckskin paint mare at the Girl Scout horse camp. So, they aren't all that rare. I would hate to think that they are trying to capitalize on the assumption that she's a "rare" color, when she actually isn't. Not sure about your area's pricing, but even as well-broke as she is, a horse like her would go for no more than $3500 in my area.

Wow she's lovely!

IMHO id go see her a couple times ( try to do one or two as rand "stop bys" just to make sure everything is normal - not saying they drug! )
Id go and take some pics, ask some info and ride her a bit, come homethink about it and go from there. You need to make sure you love her in real life more than you do from the pics. If you do, then the colour is a bonus :) Good luck!

It takes a lot for someone to sell a horse as "bombproof" .. as I think that there is no such thing.. a horse will be a horse, especially a mare. My first concern is they are saying it is a rare buckskin, which like said previously, her coloring isn't. Although it is BEAUTIFUL, it isnt rare. They are wanting 4500 which in my area is about 2000 + over priced. I sold my gelding that I rode up and down the roads, and all over the trails, and showed a 6 year old in walk trot for 2500.. Anymore than that and you could be getting a lot more for your buck than just an average trail horse.

I see a lot of people fall for horses because of looks, and they don't take the time to really inspect the horse. I would get a vet check and come for a week or two on random days to ride. Get men, women, children, all walks of planet riding her, and ask the seller to expose her to different things as they state that she is bombproof. Does she spook to tractors, cars, dogs, does she load in the trailer, pick up feet, take wormer, current shot record... I could name a checklist but there are many posts on this site that have great buyers checklists.

Good luck on the horse shopping!
