I wouldn't pay $9 for that horse. Sure, his color is pretty but that's the only thing he has going for him. He is buck-kneed, his knees look swollen, he is extremely tied in on the front legs, and his pasterns are way too upright. He would never stay sound under even moderate work.

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/

There is nothing that would make me touch that poor horse.

And to those who are upset that this thread exists - please do not publicly criticize in such a manner. If you are offended by this thread - report it and let those in charge take care of it. All your comments do is create hard feelings...

Maybe they accidentally put an extra zero on the price?
Still, I wouldn't pay a dime for that horse. Maybe he'll get really lucky and some good Samaritan will take him and upgrade him.

Jessabel, that seems unlikely as the price was changed and they didn't take a 0 off when they changed it....probably thought since no one wanted him for that price maybe they would if he was 1k cheaper! Good golly.

I am not "offended" by this thread at all. It's not my horse so why would I care? Oh, because one of our rules is that you don't just outright post horse ads that don't concern you with the sole intention of criticizing the seller. How does this look to new members? Like we just get our kicks out of ripping on other people's horses. And I'm quite sure that I blatantly stated that I was NOT attacking Lonestar because this happens all the time. I think you should reread my post before you reply to it.

Considering it's likely a scam ad anyway, the point is moot. As was mentioned, it's a good learning experience for people on what to avoid.

Maybe someone should shoot an email to the owner asking WHY the horse is so expensive..?

This horse is severely camped under at the knee. Not only that, but he's ridiculously downhill. If we were judging his price based on conformation, he wouldn't exceed $1000, but, sometimes there's more. If he is of good blood, or he's related to a famous horse, that could be part of his price, and his color is also considerable too. I, personally, would NOT pay $9000 if I was going to buy him. To be honest, I wouldn't buy him at all.

If you're not practicing, someone, somewhere is, and when you meet him, he will win.
