Cheap Horse (again)

So I talked to these people and they're willing to go down to $400. Which do you like best, or pass on both??



I also like this horse. She's for adoption... I haven't really looked into her much though.

Looking for a new home!

I like the last Filly She looks cute and she is already partly started. I would look more into her, she looks really cute. And the other 2 well you will have to back them youself (Not sure if you have experence). At least with the third one she is alredy started...I'm not really sure what you were looking for exactly so that's just my input :)

I am leaning toward Buddy, I like him and his sire looks really nice. But you would have to go threw gelding him.

If not him then I am a softy for the rescue.

I vote the filly. I know you want a project, and maybe this one will be a smoother transition into the horse world, since she is already a little trained... I think she would be more fun.

Of the two you posted, I definitely vote the first one. There are just to many things that are odd looking with the second one. Don't like him at all. What is it you are wanting to do with your horse?

I agree that if you don't have experience saddle-breaking colts the filly deserves a good look. She's pretty nicely built, from what I can see in the picture. I'd personally want to see her hocks a little better, with her standing square on level ground, the right hind looks to me like she might be a bit sickle-hocked, but that could easily be the way she's standing on the icy ground.

Of the two colts, I have to say that the palomino (Buddy) strikes my eye a little better than the buckskin (Booger - Love the name, BTW , lol). The palomino looks a bit more proportional, and less butt-high than the buckskin. Again, I'd like to see better pictures of them to judge much specifically. Both look like they could be good horses, but its hard for me to say much from the angles that the pics show of them. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but there's no substitute for seeing a prospect in person.

Glad to hear that the search is turning up some good prospects for you, and I can't wait to hear what more experienced critiquers say about these guys.

Do you have a trainer to help you with either of these youngsters? I vote go see the filly but have her vetted as she is being sold as is. Don't get in over your head! :)

I like buddy alot. He is avery good looking guy from what I can tell. I like how big butted he is as well. He's also got a thick chest and nice legs. His daddy is beautiful as well.

I like the first horse definetly.

Buddy has a short thick neck, making it harder for him to put his head down and go western pleasure. If you're actually going for REAL western pleasure, and not 'lets go ride around on the trail' pleasure. He looks over at the knee. It makes me highly suspicious that there's not side shot of him.

Booger, compared to Buddy, is a better candidate who is more balanced and lighter in the neck.

Copenhagen, I wouldn't waste my time to be honest. 'Sold as is, cash only' ... Suspicious. HIGHLY suspicious. She has a really heavy front end, and it's going to be hard to get to to do western pleasure.

You're in Oklahoma. It shouldn't be that hard to find a nice pleasure prospect. You might have to fork out a little more, but in the end it'll pay off for you much more.
