I honestly much prefer the second horse tho. Confo wise it's quite a cute horse and as far as the breeding and coloring goes it is a much better resale value.
Well the paint horse sold. She was already pending sale by the time I emailed her
Oh well. The grey is quite lovely in person and a great mover...unfortunately she doesn't know a whole lot...and what she does know was taught to her by a dressage person with brutal hands. So she needs to learn how to be soft and go forward again. She is 16 hh....7 years old...priced at $2500. She rode lovely (minus her nervous ticks about her mouth). My husband was to busy with Sydney to take pictures. Maybe next time. Im going back in 2 weeks after my trainer works with her a bit.
My2Geldings...I am looking for a jumper...not hunter/jumper. Actually in my area (Texas) the Paint would have had a much higher resale value...there is not a huge english following here...most are just AQHA/APHA english...which isn't quite the same. TB really aren't to popular here. My trainer picks them up all the time free...because people just don't want them.
