I feel that not being open and honest about this sleeping issue right off the bat is irresponsible. I would not appreciate finding out about this after I had already made an inquiry... it would put me off of her very quickly, mostly because her owner didn't tell me sooner.

In the current market, it is extremely unlikely that she will sell for so much. I was noticing that she was the most expensive horse for sale on that page... but some of the others looked like they had better movement and so on. Ironic that they weren't selling for so much.

Location is a huge factor, but I find that a horse that's worth $10,000 generally has a fairly successful local show history and does not need a confident/intermediate rider. The Trekehner mare listed above her sounds like she's further along, also suited for an intermediate rider, and is half the price.

She looks and sounds like $2500 horse. I have worked with horses with narcolepsy before. It's really not that bad. The horse I worked with was a wonderful show horse and had a wonderful life. The only thing you had to be concerned about was standing with him while riding, sometimes he would just go down, but if you kept him walking he was fine. It's really an individual case sort of thing, some horses are going to be more effected than others. But yes, they have her priced way way too high.

In that case..probably like 1500-2000 like others said

I've worked with horses with narcolepsy before as well, but this case doesn't really sound like narcolepsy.

Thats what I think also... its always when she's asleep she falls. I will try and find more info on it.

Yeah I think the price is fair for what she's doing and her age and stuff, but with that weird sleeping thing it's irresponsible to even be selling her. I'd send her to a university for research if I wanted to "sell" her. Or sell her to a vet's kid or a vet or something.
