Theya re selling him for only $500 which is what it costs for a grade around here. In this case I really don't care about papers. He could be registered at buyers exspence.

Thanks, but I already know that. like I said before I KNOW HE IS YOUNG! You can still give an oppinion. there are sertain falts that horses are born with that will never go away. If I'm going to spend money on some thing I want to make sure he will be sound in the long run. Thats the best shot that I have and IMHO it's a decent confo shot. Not the best angle but sertanly not the worst.

A side shot is not enough to give a proper response to your question. For a proper conformation critique a side, front and back shots are needed, and a video would be nice as well to see how he/she moves. The picture you have posted is small and shows only a side view of the horse. Unless all your angling for is an "oooh pretty paint" response.

You asked for critique, Alwaysbehind gave you her response and you blew it off like it was so much fluff. Personally if I am purchasing a horse/yearling etc.. and both parents have papers and the owner is selling it to me as a grade horse I would wonder wth is up. Papered/registered horses are worth more, and since the market is so low I would assume that breeders would sell horses that could be registered at a better price then a grade.

I already said that, that is all I've got as far as photo's. If there is some thing glairingly wrong with him you should be able to see it from that shot. I don't want to waist any ones time by going out to see him if there is some thing wrong conformationaly.

The market here is Flooded with registered horses that no one wants. Grades sell beter here. I didn't blow her off I just know what the market looks like around here. Why waist money on registering a horses if your not going to make that kind of money back?

I know, I know.
*Waves hand in air like a first grader needing to use the bathroom.

Because you care about the breed!

Period.

People who care about the breed tend to breed horses of quality and they want their horses to have papers.

Back yard types who just breed for pretty colors do not care about the breed.

And I am sorry, I totally am not falling for the 'horses with out papers sell better in my area' thing.

In your first response you implied he did not have papers because papers cost too much. That is very different than horses with papers are not worth it.

Did you ever decide whether to buy this horse? Is he going to be a replacement for Soņador? And I'm really curious about the "grades selling better" thing. Can you elaborate?

No, after sona's gone I wount be getting another horse for several years or maybe never. :/


Low priced grades (100-700) as well as OTTB sell well around here because there are sooo meny Registered horses selling for higher prices. There is very few registered horses going for under 1000.

So it's not "grades sell better," it's "cheap horses sell better?"

For the most part yes. But 99% of cheap horses are grade. Some have papers but papers wount wount be passed on unless you pay a higher price.

This is just for my area, I know all places are diffrent
