Weanling
Exclamation Please critique this APHA weanling colt potential buy!!!!

Well I am still looking for a halter prospect and I came across this guy and was wondering what you think. He is actually being sold with his mom, but the lady said she is considering selling him seperate. The first two pictures are of him one picture with his mom and the last picture is his dad Inconclusive Dream .
What do you think I should ask for him if she says make an offer and please tell me what you think of him and if you think he would be a good APHA halter prospect.

He was foaled Jan 25 2009

This is his mom


Him and his mom



Him by himself



His dad

It's kinda hard to give an accurate critique of a colt so young. His face is so cute though and his daddy is gorgeous.

Yea I understand that you can't give him a good critique and I agree I looove his dad.

She responded to my email and said she is asking 1000 for him. Do you think that's a good price for him?

Does he have color? Or is he solid?

I think you could get him lower. His dad is good but him mom is kinda sorry. 800 would be better, seeingas he is not trained at all.

If he is solid $1000 is way over priced. He is a very cute little boy but should have a lower price tag. I think you could easily find a colored foal with regular APHA papers and equal quality for $1000 in todays market.

I'm not a fan of Impressive breed horses, but his sire has a pretty good show record.

Inconclusive Dream Paint

Based on that I think $1K is a fair price. Seems is get are winning as well.



Has the dam done anything?

Oh honey keep looking. Dad is impressive but again his mom is not put together all that well. $1000 on that colt is way too much right now. If you could get him for $500 or less then it would be a decent investment.

Heck, we got a three year old regular papered APHA for far less than what that lady's asking. I wouldn't pay $500 for a baby. Maybe I'd take a weanling if free or less than $250, especially a solid APHA.

The baby is cute but you certainly cannot tell if he will turn into what you want.
