He is definitely georgeous but looks mighty expensive to me. Looks very well put together from what I can see but I'm terrible at critiquing. Also, I just had to say the braiding job on him is just incredible, especially his tail. I want to learn to braid like that someday.

Isn't the mid five figures like 50,000 or so? I thought 10,000 was a lot for my horse. Well let me know if you try him out or anything he looks like an awesome horse.

wait...are you saying they are asking $50k or more for that TB.

I agree he's really pretty, can jump fairly well...but IMHO, if that is the ammount they are asking, he isn't worth it. Unless he has one of a kind bloodlines, and a GREAT show record...and even that might not be enough.

To me, he definitely is NOT worth that much....I'd never pay that much for a horse even if it was a friesian or whatever.

$10,000 is the MAX I'd pay for him. Call me cheap, but that's my opinion.

I do, however, like the way he's built, and how the carries himself over jumps.

I agree too! I think its crazy how people go out and spends like $100,000 on a show horse. (no offense to anyone) there was a show horse for sale in my area for that much and IMO he wasn't the prettiest thing. I think you can find a much better horse for a less amount of money. I have seen that alot of fancy shmancy show barns sell there show horses for too much money. I think you can move on and find something better. Id never pay that much, and he's only a Thoroughbred. He's more money then the Friesians and the Gypsy Vanners that I've seen for sale. :roll:
