maybe buying this girl

Shes a 16.1 percheron mare. 8 years old and was amished used. I have to retrain her for trails and some ring work. Shes $900. Sorry the picture is so big. I will be getting others today. I've worked out an agreement to where I pay $150 a month on her, Then after she is paid for she then belongs to me.

I think she is cute as a button! I LOVE drafty horses! (i have to say, the chair in her pen made me laugh too.. lol) I don't know too terribly much about draft conformation or anything like that, so on that aspect, im of no help!

But, a recommendation i DO have...

Since you're doing time payments on this horse, you will definately want to get some sort of bill of sale/lien/whatever on her. I've seen far too many people get ripped off because there was no documentation of the payments being recieved. A cheap solution to this will be to ONLY pay the owner with Checks. That way, you can retain the carbon copy of the check, and there will be a bank record saying the check has been cleared/cashed.

The other side of this, is.. what happens if you make the first 3 payments and she suddenly colics. Who has power of vet? Who pays for it? What if she dies? do you get your money back? Will she be staying with you or the original owner?

Just something to think about! =)

I agree.

Also - is it possible for them to house her somewhere without chairs and other safety hazards in the turnout?

she will be going to my barn. Thank heavens. Clear, grassy pasture and a nice stall. If she colics it will be the owners responsability, not mine. The payments will be in check, no cash because I know how people can be. Shes going to have her lawyer make a contract.

Perfect!!

You're lucky to have found a seller that will let you take on the horse at your barn! And im very glad a contract will be made out too!

I'm not fan of drafts, but she's very cute, and I'd say doesn't look much like percheron (except the tail lol!). She is on light side definitely. I think she'll be great for ring work (and most horses are great for trails anyway :) ).

I honestly believe that horse is not a Percheron, no way. She might be something of a cross. She's got a really big head for her body (that might be the draft part). I think someone's pulling your leg. That said, she looks fine from the one picture. If you want a real critique you need pictures from the back and front.

She looks more like one of those American Cream Drafts. Maybe a cross with one of those or a belgian?

Adorable anyway! =D
