Exclamation Looking at this Filly.

Yes! I read the ad. Ad is posted below.



"Miniature Mare-----Dixie is a Beautiful Brown/white Paint Mare. She will be 2 years old May 2010, and she is around 31 inches tall. It is a possibility that she is pregnant by a Black/White pinto. So, the foal will be stunning. I was going to hold on to her until after she had her foal, but there has been a change in plans. She is friendly, but still needs work. She will lead, tie and stand to be bathed/brushed. She will need more shots around April/May 2010. Her hooves will also need to be trimmed soon. I am asking $325.00 OBO for her. Price is negotiable. I just want her to go to a good home. If interested, please call [phone number]. Thanks.**The picture was taken a couple of months ago. The only thing different is that her coat is thicker.**"

Dude, I really want to rescue her from her ignorant owners. I'm making a call to my mom to see if I can help. BRED AS A YEARLING >:/. Anyways what do you think of her and how much should I offer?

As harsh as it may sound, even free can be very expensive. A maiden mare at that age, and a miniature on top of that may be a very expensive delivery.

If you feel the need to own this mare, and I can understand your feeling, I wouldn't spend more then $100.

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.

I know what you're saying. I want to tackle a problem I may not be able to handle. I don't think she will take $100, unfortunately.

Bump!

I'd take $250. Go in expecting that you may be spending a lot of money on vet care. I would have a vet handy (real handy) for this one. Her frame looks way to delicate to be bred right now, and on top of that she's still a baby. Her owners deserve some kind of punishment for that.

I know, and the sad thing is we can't get her out of that situation. My mom and I talked it over - and we don't have the funds for vet care if theres issues. If anybody in my area knows anybody who has the time, & money for her, I'll get you the links and phone numbers.. or even my own!

I've looked at her a few times and talked to the owner.. But I don't think she will negioate to much on the price and she has had her on there for a while now..

That is terrible! I really wish I could help, but sadly I can't. I'll definitely spread the word though.
