Haha, I actually like Blue even better!! Although I AM a little biased with the drafts, haha.
He seems really, really honest and such a big cutie.
16hh is only 2 inches taller than 15.2 so I don't know why you would be worried about the height difference. I personally prefer taller horses.

But yeah, I'd definitely go look at both of them. I like Blue better though :)

It is kind strange that they had a sale video of Blue but didn't have any real ridden in it, which I think would have been better than the lunging.

From the videos I think I might like the appy better. But for the price there doesn't seem to be much between them so I would lean towards the roan. You should go out and try them both, and if possible see if you can get a video of you riding or of them riding or something. I think the appys height would be okay because she's pretty solid, but for your height I wouldn't want to be going any shorter than 15.2. I'm just bias because I like mares :P

I thought that was strange too. When they email me, I will ask if they have other videos.

Yeah, the appy's price is quite high, and the video doesnt show much.. just trotting bareback. Doesnt look like she's worth $4000 from what they show... but I think I should go look at both of them. Maybe I should ask for some confo. Shots of koko (appy mare).

Yeah, I think anything from 15.2hh - 16.3hh or so would be best.. but Im a bit flexible if its the right horse :)

Thanks! Hehe :)

The owner emailed me, here is what she said :)

Koko has no vices or bad habits. She doesn't kick, bite, crib, buck, bolt, etc. She's wonderful for trailering and the farrier. She walks right on the trailer, trailers alone or with other horses no problem, and stands quietly for the farrier. Usually she starts to fall asleep, haha.
We have her wearing all 4 shoes. You may be able to do just the front 2 feet, depending on what you're using her for. I was using her on trails only, so she needed shoes for all the climbing up/down hills, across rocky paths, etc.

I'd say in a scale of 1-10 temperment she's a 2. She definitely loves people. She's one of those cuddlebug horses, she just loves to be around people and get attention and be used. That's something I can't give her right now, which is why I'm selling. She runs up to you in the field, always the first to the gate. Practically sticks her own head in the halter, she's that eager to do something with you.


I think she sounds wonderful! XD
Also, the palomino horse that is in some of the pictures, is for sale as well..
I asked her for some info. About him/her as well :)
