Hahaha a gelded colt. That makes me laugh. Thanks for pointing that out!

if they're not all that horse savvy, or something, they could be using colt to describe him as being under the age of four, and not using it as colt (a young stallion)

If you have the time to spend with training a young horse (and everything that goes with it) as well as riding the mare, go for it.

Well as I stated im pretty sure I remember this horse. If I am correct then I know the lady that trained her. In my opinion she is an amazing trainer! She is the one that got me into cutting horses. I don’t remember a whole lot about the horse but I think I remember seeing her in the pen at the trainer’s house with a little bay colt on her side. This was in June I think I was back last. I would go take a look for sure! If not then there are ALOT of really great horses for sale in that area and you could probably find some thing for a lot cheaper as well! If your interested give my mom a call and she could easily round up a few different horses for you to look at in one day.

The mare sounds like a great horse and definitely worth seriously looking at. As far as conformation goes, she is a little straight in the shoulder and a little light in the hip, and possibly a little long in the pasterns, but it's really hard to critique conformation accurately from a photo. Also, she is built to move with her head a little higher than some people like - depends on what you want to do with her. Personally, I don't believe any of her little conformation imperfections are anything to worry about, unless you plan on doing something with her that requires specific traits, such as reining, etc. Let us know how it goes if you get to go try her out.

NicoleS11 -- I believe their last name is munson.. :) That is really cool! Did you ever see her handled/ridden or anything?

That would be great!! Except, we might be going this weekend, and we live about 3.5 hours away.. so we don't really have time..

Unless we went sunday, we could come all day :)


Thanks everyone else xD haha, woops, I didn't see "gelded" on the ad.. haha
I just assumed since its a "colt" that he wasn't gelded :P

thanks again!

I have a soft spot for Palominos (oes?).

I don't know what kind of horse experience you have but if you are confident and experienced with horses then I don't see why you couldn't train up the young one. Everyone has to train their first horse sometimes, just make sure you are going to have the time to dedicate to it in a few years, circumstances change.

I think the yearling is darling and they are fun to work with. I have had Scout since 11 months old, and that seemed to be the time he wanted to learn EVERYTHING. If they are very people savvy, then they love trying new things. Not all horses are the same, but I bet you would have a blast working with a yearling. Plus, it gives you time to bond on the ground for a long while before you even think of getting on there back. As long as you let them know that you are the boss (even though you are friendly) then they will respect your space and not walk all over you. Good luck and I hope this is finally "THE HORSE" for you so your search can be over with. ;)

Thanks guys :)

Saskia -- I have been riding for about 5 yrs, I am only 13 yrs old.. but, I love horses, and I would be with them all the time that I am not in school!
I would even do my homework next to them xD

APHA MOMMA -- I don't think we can look at him while we are up there though :( as they are trailering the mare to a friends place, for us to ride her there.
Also, we have very limited time, as we live 3 hours away, and we are going there in the evening.

But, if the owners are trustworthy, and I really love the mare, and she is kind. The yearling probably is like her as well :)
If I was really interested in the mare, I should probably go check out the yearling as well.. just to see :)

Haha. I sure hope so!! It seems like.. every horse I go to look at, turns out wrong.. and every horse I think is perfect, gets sold the next day!!
It sucks! haha

But, the owners said that they think I would be a good home for her, and they will let me have first choice over the other people interested in her.

Thanks again :)

We are going to see her tommorow! :))

I can't be there too long, only about 45mins max. or so...
What sorts of things should I do?
What should I look for?
