Possible Buy, what do you think?

This filly that I'm looking at buying is just a weanling, she's a chocolate palomino, and she's really pretty, good looking. I'll post some pics later, when I figure out my scanner. >.< lol.

Anyway, here's her pedigree, and tell me what you think. He wants $1500 for her.... I could get one with about the same bloodlines, minus the coloring and probably the fineness of her for abour $900. What do you think? Worth it or not?

Here's the linky to her pedigree.

but also to control his every movement.

whats her movement like?
Plus, I suppose it just depends on how important the colouring is to YOU...
Is it worth $600 to you?

Her pedigree seems decent but I will reserve judgement until I see pix or video.

I also agree with PP^, is her color worth an additional $600?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Not really to me... But she's pretty clean, well built. Gorgeous, actually. I'll see if I can figure out the scanner.....

I haven't actually seen her yet, just pics. She's palomino now, but will be chocolate palomino later in life. I got the scanner to work, here's the few pics I have... I've seen other pictures, she looks a lot better, but these are all I have.

I have one more to add later, I have to go to work. =(

She is going to be one broad girl. LOL. Beautiful big muscles and her upper confo looks sound. The only thing that bothers me about her is her legs. Her bones and feet look really small and her pasterns look really long. That is all that I notice. She is going to have a very refined head when she matures though.

I know, she's very refined. I've bought from this guy before, and he's very honest. I've loved all the others I've gotten from him, and they've all been under $1000, just because he's old and wants to get out of horses.

But he REALLY likes this one. And he's pretty sure he could get that much for it, if I don't buy it... I don't know that I like it THAT much though. Not sure, haven't seen it's movement or anything. I'm going to go see it sometime next month, he's going to save it for me unless I tell him not to.....

I just don't know. Think it's worth that much?

In all honesty, it wouldn't be worth that much to me. BUT my needs and wants are different than yours. If I were you, I would wait until I went to see it before I made a final decision. It may be an awesome mover or it could move like a goat LOL. Are the others with the same breeding in the same place so that you could look at them too while you are there?

I would definitely request some new pictures. Her pasturns look so straight which is not good. I will say though she looks very healthy and well taken care of so that's a huge plus. So many don't feed weanlings right or deworm them etc so that is worth a lot knowing a foal got off to a good start

Yeah, I'm looking for a reining/cutting horse, and she def. Has the bloodlines, and her full sister is an awesome money earner.

He had a ton of other pics on his camera, but I didn't get them put on here. >.<

Yeah, now that you guys mention it, her pasterns are very straight. Didn't notice that before.

Here's the last picture I have, it's my fave I think. Not sure why haha. Yeah, he takes really good care of his horses, alright.

Smrobs, he actually brought the ones we just bought up here. And the others that I bought, I went there, but that filly wasn't born yet. So I haven't seen her move or anything. All I have to go off is pics, experience, and this guy's word. Do you think he'll get that from someone else, or that it'll just sit around in the pasture until he lowers the price and I buy it, lol?
