A colt I couldn't help but love... what would you give?

This is an old QH colt of mine, Axe. He's grade, but beautifully colored... take a look at this video clip I shot of him last summer.

This was only a couple weeks after I bought him... guess how much I gave?

Guess how much I got out of him 4 months after this video?




(Already aware he's underweight... my passion is buying them that way and fattening them up.)

175-250 when you bought him, and then the 800 (which you posted). He's cute!

$40!!!!

Yes, forty dollars!

I didn't think anyone would guess that low, and I wasn't going to keep going, lol. He was as big a baby as they come! I saddled him with a kid's vinyl saddle and he was a doll!

May I ask how old he was in that video?

ETA - nevermind, it says on your youtube description "broke yearling stud colt" -- is that correct? If it is, I am just a little concerned about that..

Oookay, this is not a good thing!!

Off your youtube:
"This is my long yearling stud colt, Axe. I am in the process of uploading another video + pictures of him being saddled and ridden. He'll be ready to work in the spring!"

This horse is a baby!! Why would you train and ride him?!

"broke yearling stud colt is led by 11 year old with 6 year old rider."

Okay, so not only is he young and "broke", an 11 year old leads him with a 6 year old rider?! That's a whole other issue.. for DHS to deal with.
