Yeah i would think so too. Honestly though, the HYPP bothers me. I have been doing research on the pedigree.... She could be positive. I know it is not possible for her to have gotten it from her mother's line, as I couldn't find impressive blood, but her sire, possibly. I cant seem to find if he is N/N or N/H.

Sierra Te is N/N, obviously since he has no Impressive blood BUT
Cools Golden Girl is N/h.. So how can i find out if The Certain Te is N/N or N/h?

Sequestored I believe is N/N since Statutory is N/N and Ms. Patsy Jean I believe doesn't carry impressive blood, making her N/N. Can someone do a look up for me?

Your mare is very cute. I have a couple of suggestions. First, a picture is worth a thousand words. Get really good pictures of her. In the pictures here she looks like she still has her winter coat? Is that current? Maybe clean her up real good, get her best side showing and take some good pictures.

Second, not sure how much extra it costs to put pictures on Dreamhorse and Equine.com but I noticed that you don't have any pictures uploaded on either site. The equine.com ad is rather vague as well. Dreamhorse is better but you also haven't put any of her registration info on any of the ads. For me, it would take alot for me to follow up on contacting the owner for more info, simply because there are so many horses out there with the info already there. And I don't have to work at it.

She's very cute and I think the price is almost too low, but that's just me.

Slick this mare up, and I think you won't have a problem selling her. She is a very nice horse and I like her quiet nature. As for the HYPP, have her tested.

I think you have her priced well, but be prepared to take a lower offer on her. I think if you do spruce her up with better pictures you would have a better shot. Honestly though in my area you would be hard pressed to find someone that would pay more than $500. (I live in NY)

I never went to look at the ads but if you have no pics or pedigree that could be a big reason you aren't getting interest. I know myself when I browse the equine classifieds I basically only look at the picture ads. There is too many ads to be bothered sorting through the plain text ads. If the picture is appealing then I look further into ad Pedigree is also something I look at. I also sometimes do horse searches based on pedigree so if you haven't go the pedigree filled in the horse isn't going to come up in the search.

I agree with everyone, get as nice a photo of her as you can. Ive been looking to buy a horse now for 3 months and have been looking online and I dont bother looking at ones with no photos. Maybe I'm wrong to do that, but I just dont have the honest time. So get a nice photo of her that make her look, calm but alert, relaxed, with someone riding her would be best, give her a good groom and wash and then trying and get a photo of her that makes her look great. with all four feet squared if possible, or her head held up, not right down as some people will think shes too quiet and probably to slow to even bother looking at.
You have to rememeber, the world is full of lazy people. These lazy people want to find the perfect horse for what they are doing through the internet, with a picture that makes them go 'Hey, this girls nice, she may well be worth a look.' Some people even make a small video of their horses being ridden and all of this can really help.
So I hope I havent rambled on, and hope you sell this beauty. She looks likee a lovely horse but I think those photos dont really do her justice.

At the 1996 AQHA Convention in Seattle, Washington, the AQHA Board of Directors approved some rules recommended by the AQHA Stud Book and Registration Committee and approved by the Board of Directors. Among the changes was a rule requiring disclosure of HYPP status on the registration certificates of foals born on or after January 1, 1998, which descend from any bloodline determined to carry the HYPP gene.

Her papers will have been stamped with her status of HYPP. as per the AQHA requirement for registration.

I agree, clean her up, clean the tack, my pet peev is seeing a halter under a bridle, makes me think the owners are too lazy to tack up the horse properly. With some elbow grease, good lighting, and someone to help you position her, she should sell quick, she's a good looking mare under all that fuzz.

Good to know thank you!!!

I think the problem here is that I am limited in what I can do.. Pictures on those sites cost money and I don't think the owner is willing to spend much just cuz I tell her to.

This is NOT my mare. I have put training and time into her, but she is not mine. I am selling her as a favor to my Aunt, mainly because I want the horse sold because I feel bad, she's all alone since Lakota died. She doesn't get nearly enough attention because my Aunt is super busy due to huge changes in her life, and he daughter went off to college.

What I am trying to say is that I am doing this as a favor. I am currently 3 hours away from this mare, so idk if I am going to have time to spruce her up. I am in the area next weekend, maybe I will have time then. But my priority will be my horse Onyx, since I haven't seen him in 3 weeks and am moving him down by me soon.


Thanks so much to everyone for the feedback!!

I will be sure to post better pictures of her if I manage to get any.

I am a trail rider. I purposefully put Lakota's old halter on this mare. And the main reason was because, as you can see in one of the pics, my niece was "riding". I didn't have a helmet for her, so I took extra precaution by having a lead rope/halter on the horse and 2 people (both of whom I trust) on the horses sides. That's why she has a halter on. That and since I trail ride, I always keep a halter on so I can tie them if need be, usually its a rope halter though.
