    what do you think of this horse

    Palomino Arab/quarter horse I don't know. I was looking for a mare or filly and this guy is a gelding. Wanting to try to find a personal horse and I am interested in getting a competitive trail horse or endurance prospect not much in my area not the best photos trying to get better ones the price is low so that's a concern too.

    Might be worth looking at. Wouldn't go more than $150 though, plus the papers.

    Pretty color and nice looking, but doesn't even say how old he is... what are your criteria for picking this one over any other? Arabians are a dime a dozen right now, and all of them seem to be "endurance prospects".

    He looks young, not broke, not registered and thus....not worth a dime. If I went to look at such a horse (and I would not) I would carry $150 in cash with me and if I felt like I wanted to waste my money, I'd offer them what I had in pocket, take it or leave it. The market is full of such "prospects".

    Ask them for conformation photos. Nothing can be told from these photos.

    Horses go for more at auction here and Arabians are not as common in my area because everyone wants ranch horses. As far as what I want temperament is key because I will have this horse for its life so a bond is what I am looking for. When I rescued I took some CRAZY horses that were intent to murder me I am not doing that again my health isn't as good and if I want a project I will take in a dog with behavior issues they eat less lol. Having said that this horse will be the horse I ride I will get one more for packing when I camp but that may end up being a donkey at a auction. Now I wouldn't pay more then 150 for a donkey unless I got one from a rescue. But my riding horse I plan to camp with, and do competitive trail or endurance so a horse that can stand up to it. Looks have a little to do with what I want I horse that looks arab if its all Arabian. I know he isn't pure but he is pretty and I like how he looks. The fact he can be registered is nice and both parents are on site. I am not liking that he isn't rideable yet but I only plan on two equines so I will have the resources and that he is a gelding. I just prefer mares. I am worried about how old he is and I asked about that and for photos of the parents.

    That's all well and good but just look with your head and not your heart. Your hear will spend too much on a not so much horse. At auction ( a good auction, not low end meat buyer's auction) here, a young unstarted gelding will sell for $500 or less, IF you emphasize his good quarter horse side and don't mention the Arab in his pedigree. Since he's a pally, he might go for around $500, if he looks like he's real quiet and nice when they bring him through. At the low end auction, I could buy that horse for less $100 by the pound.

    No confo. Photos, no videos, doesn't state his age and he's barely started. And they want 400? It must be nice living in fantasy land, round here they'd be laughed at.

    I would want to see if he can be caught first........................

    Photos are NG for critique other than the horse can gallop.

    I hate Craig's list for horses.
