    To trade for my mini?

    I found this mare to possibly trade for my mini. She is for 1,200 but they said they'd take the mini and 800. What do you think?

    She's cute. Looks a lot like a little roan I had for a while, he is at the bottom.

    I am a bit concerned though that they don't have any pictures of her under saddle... And she sounds like she may be a bit of a handful. But if your ok to manage that then it's no problem :]

    When you go to see her, make them ride her first ;) AND make sure they tack her up to ride her while you're there. I recently had a client who bought a horse from someone who rode the tar out of the horse before my client arrived. She said when she got there, the horse was dripping with sweat and foam. Of course, when she rode, the horse was nice. Then when she got home the horse was psychotic.

    So, if it were me, i'd watch the entire tack up process and look for her manners/patience. Then I would let the owner get on her first. I ain't riskin my neck!! =) If you get there and the horse is already tacked.. i'd be a bit weary =/

    Yeah, I understand. Sometimes, I make the deal that I can return a horse within a week if I am not satisfied. I would also have the vet over...

    You can actually schedule the appointment for, say, 4 pm, but show up at 3:30 pm (with apologies that you are done with your stuff earlier blah-blah-blah). She's cute, btw. Not a bad trade.

    Sorry to be a spoilsport but I don't like her. She is way overweight, has a very short neck, too steep of a slope to her shoulder, and is really in the large pony range.

    I think that they are saying that she has a lot of go to her and will most likely be a real handful. Lastly, $1,200 for an unregistered pony in this economy?? Or even $800 + your mini? IMO, very over priced.

    I have to agree. She's very pony looking and she is extremely overweight. She also has no nest/chest definition. It's just one straight line from the throat latch down. I'd also be wary of their description of her having 'a lot of fire.'

    I think you could find a nice, registered (and broke) horse for $800 with no trade.
