    Possible Purchase

    Name: A Classic Scotch
    Pedigree: Click here.
    Age: 4 [2004]
    Breed: APHA [Registered]
    Height: 15.1HH
    Training: Western Pleasure [90 days]
    Purpose: Western Pleasure Mare/Trail/One-Two Time Broodmare
    Noteworthy: She's advertised at $4,500. I'm not sure if she's worth it. Your job is to determine if she is or not. Take a good look at her shoulder, her coloring makes it look odd. Also, her eye is not like that, so PLEASE do not comment on that. I'm not sure why it looks like that actually. It's quite odd.

    I don't know money-wise, but she looks very nice to me.

    I would have to see her move. But I really don't like her neck, its a tad long. She looks like she would be a decent mover. Form the pictures alone and from what little you have said i'd say she is worth 2,000. But that's just from what I can see.

    agreed ^^^
    Her neck is long, and there's something about her back that I don't like. She possibly has a pigeon chest, but I can't really tell that well. She looks high in the withers...but only in some pictures.

    Like you said her eyes look kinda funny, but since you said it isn't like that I won't comment on it

    She is really flash and looks like a nice mare.

    I have to agree with Delete though. I'd say she's worth around $2000-$3000 here where I live. If you haven't already, go and check her out. See how she moves and listens. Horses that have nice gaits will have a higher price.

    HAHA! I was just looking at the Pedigree....that horse is related to my boy

    I do like her coloring, but I wouldn't but her as a western pleasure horse at all.

    She's cute, but I'd want to see how she rides and moves before I would think about $4,500..... also her pedigree would pay a big part in the price too

    Just looking at her pedigree... What's her hypp status?
    And $4500 doesn't seem like too much if she moves well and her training is good.

    Because 4,500 is starting to be a bit more significant in cost I would want to see her move. Hard to give my opinion by looking only at the photos.
    I found the back to be a bit long but the neck balances is it a little more. Do you know why they are selling the horse? Do you know how much training was done?

    Her blood lines arn't that good.

    I think she's got a nice face. Her neck is a bit long, but geeze guys, she's only 4. QH's can be late bloomers and she could still grow and fill out!

    I think she's very nice looking.
