    I really like him! Color, proportion, balance, training, age - he is nice. I think he is worth that price.

    Ooooh he is dreamy! I love his muscles!! And his color!

    Does your daughter ride Dressage and/or Eventing?

    What a nice horse! I think price vs quality is just good.

    Wow, he looks nice! I don't know how horses are priced in Aus. But in the US $5500 really isn't much for a well trained horse that's competitive at shows. (I assume he's been shown?)

    If he's sound, and ridable by your daughter .. BUY BUY BUY!

    However: I found that when it came to sell my 15.3hh mare.. I couldn't get the price I wanted for her because she wasn't pony size, and wasn't 16hh.... which is what most people look for. Bigger is better nowadays, unfortunately. My mare was jumping 3'6" courses, and doung menium level dressage.. so well trained. Still, for $5500 if you wanted to sell him you might be able to make a bit of profit if you put some time and shows in on him.
    Sellable in a pinch? Yes. Definitely.

    He is a definite looker! His movement looks flawless. I would definitely say go take a look at him.

    If he's for your daughter and she's in dressage and eventing, he'll be perfect.

    What does your daughter think of him?

    *sigh* I'll take him if you don't want him! He's stunning, really, and just the type I like. Much nicer than Mikey, looking at those dressage pics!

    The price seems very good too. I know the US (you are in the US right?) market is in a slump right now, but you'd never get that quality for that price here - you're looking at 5-6000 POUNDS. I'd buy him in a heartbeat.

    No Kyani im in Australia And I mean 5500 in (AUS dollars) :)
    Well I went and was driving up to see him and let my daughter have a ride, and the lady rang us about 30min before we got there, and said a nother lady that lives up the road coming to look at him. And I agreed to still have a look at him, anyways we arrived and he was getting loaded into the float... Apprentally this other lady offered the lady that owned him almost double the price, and I understand, I wouldnt knock that back either.... the poor lady who owned him use to get teenages to ride him and compete on him, and she found out a month ago that she had cancer, and she had to move to Brisbane closer to the big hospital. And she isnt expected to live for much longer that's really sad, not only that, but the bond the lady and the horse had.. you couldnt get any stronger. So im kinda glad we didnt get him, cause I would have to carry that memory with me... He went to a lovely show home in Gympie QLD.

    It must of been meant to be...
