@ OP he is cute! but not broke......... they say he is started? id go and offer 200 because if you say 150 they are going to quickly say umm no. so i would be like i can pick up horses that are registered and broke for 400 any day of the week, but he is neither broke or registered so i think hes only half that so how about you and i meet in the middle at 200? and if they want to negotiate, let them ... but i wouldnt go over 300.

well they are asking $400 because he is awfully pretty and of course...people love a pally. His head is adorable. I know it's not a confo but he's moving pretty nice and I can say I like the look of his neck, throatlatch and he just looks pretty solid all around. He look very young and not even all filled out. I will tell you with my arab/QH that is 20, he is a HANDFUL at 20. I often say he would have done me in if I had him when he was a youngster! The quarabs are an amazing breed, I love, love them but would I want to start a three or four year old (yes, I am guessing here but that's my guess on age) probably not. This one looks like he's pretty frisky so if you're up for a really spirited horse that won't slow down for two or three decades (possibly, I know these are all HUGE assumptions and speculation!), go see him!

When I first thought when I saw the ad was this is a photo off a magazine. Did anyone else feel that way? I thought the ad was vague and at first I thought it was a scam. Did you go see the horse? Cute looking! I would love to see conformation and video. ;)

I found out a little more on this boy first another photo... http://www.dankaearabians.com/DSC_0012.JPG
He is 4 years old and was originally for sale in Nevada by Danke Arabians. They have him listed for sale at 3k. His sire is Sir Charles Raleigh, an AQHA stallion, dam is FSMystery, a purebred Russian bred Arabian mare.
Planning on seeing him this week. I did email the Nevada breeder to try to find out more about him I would like to know how he ended up in NM and why the price is so different

Boy, I LOVE the smile on his face!!! His back looks really long, his feet look High/low, desperately need trimming, and his neck is strange, but I LOVE his face.

This photo is much better. Still not great for critique but you can at least see him. He looks cared for and aside from the junk in the background it's a nice pic.

The other pics are awful. Horse has lost a decent amount of condition/weight and goes from looking like a decent horse at a decent price to some backyard rescue... Something happened.

He is cute. He likes to run. (Could come in handy in endurance lol) He looks small and not as stocky as I'd expect for ArabXQH. Registered for what 1/2 Arab? It doesn't even say he is just said could be (why wasn't he registered back when he was worth 3k?)

I think he's adorable but be practical. It flat out says he is unbroken and no pictures to show how friendly and easy to break he'll be lol. Not actually registered, and something very fishy is going on. I think he's worth going to look at but I'd think of him as a rescue. Get some good confo pics when you go and repost!

He's pretty but this wreaks of fishiness...something is wrong with him or someone would already have claimed him.
