To begin with, no one was being anything but polite so let's not get into that. Secondly, I attend 1 or 2 auctions per month, with last Saturday night being the latest. Weanlings, if they sold at all, brought anywhere from $10 to $45. One registered one brought $75 but she was AQHA and out of some nice cowhorse stock. Ponies that were ridden into the ring by little kids were bringing under $100.
Horses sell for what someone is actually willing to pay - not what someone just says they are worth. I know you need a starting point but, at least in my area, $400 would not even you a phone call registered or not.
Lastly, you are afraid of letting her go too cheap because someone else will make money on her?! I won't even go into that except to say that with that idea in your mind, you will never sell her.
On a side note, did I understand that her dam is pregnant again?
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
