I like all of them, but the last one (the mare) looks like a steal for the price. I also liked 2 before her (Tornado & Cricket). First 2 are OK, but not my #1 choice.

I really like all these horses. (I guess I have a thing fo greys!) I think A Touch Of Aries
has a lot of potential, and for 2k is also a steal at the price. Any thoughts?

The only one that caught my eye was the last one. She looks like a good jumper and her ears are perky every time she jumps...which to me means she's a happy jumper.

I'd say try the last one first. The only thing which concerns me - 3K for such horse IS cheap. Even in this economy. Of course could be reasons like urgent need of money and such. I wish I'd be close to try her out!!

I really like the looks of that last mare. She looks like an honest horse with good personality. Let us know how it goes! :)

I really like that last mare a lot too. I have emailed them asking for more information yesterday, but haven't heard back yet. I keep thinking it's a typo, and should read $30,000, not $3,000.

The only problem, I only have $1500 until I get my taxes back. (Should be within 6 weeks....) Any suggestions on how to work this? I have a feeling she is going to sell FAST at that price. I don't want to miss out because I have to wait 6 weeks for my darn taxes... Ugh!!

try her out and see if you can put a deposit down...usually its only 10%. The horse I just bought I couldn't go see for a month...so I basically asked the owner if I could pay "board" for a month. We considered it a very very short term lease.

The last mare is pretty in color but appears to me to be a horse heavy on her forehand. But the rider is really encouraging that as well.
