Not meaning to be rude but does it seem weird that both people posted within at least 2-5 minutes back and forth from each other?

The horses there are nice looking and well built but with the economy the way it is, prices are not good at all, IMO. The first one pictured is beautiful! But not worth $1500 ;)

Then don't buy it. No I don't think it's weird I have done it a few times myself.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

I have a horse I bought from them as a two year old and he is a very very nice horse. Thier horses have great minds and are very trainable and athletic. You can get cheaper horses but they will be well... cheaper. The Davis's are very nice people as well. What you see is what you get. You would do well with any of thier yearlings but I like the Blue Spark Olena horses.

They have some incredible bloodlines. I really like their stud "Starlight Midnight". His confo is wonderful.

They certainly have some very flashy horses and if I had to pick one, I think I would like to bring this one home.

Dual Sparks DR








Though this is an incredibly nice foal as well (hence the $12,000 pricetag).
Super Cool Cat DR









I watched the NCHA bloodstock auction the other day and the average for a decently bred yearling was $25,000. Though a small portion of the price is for the color, what the money is for here is quality and proven breeding.

Very nice horses.

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/

$12,000 for a young horse? you could get a fresian for that price or a really nice warmblood...sorry no young foal is worth that much in my mind...especially the way the economy is

That is fine and dandy if you want a Friesian or a Warmblood. If you are looking for something like this then the price might make sense to you.

Just because they are not what you want does not mean they are not worth anything.

This one

Montana Spark DR
2008 Red Roan Filly

I love this coloring

Talk about an eye catcher

And I'd probably walk away with this one

Never said they are not worth anything just don't think that they are worth that much money...some seem ok priced and some I would love to get if my fiance had more room, but I would not buy any horse, especially not one that young for $12,000

I would, if I was a real competitor and looking for something to possibly breed in the future. You get what you pay for a lot of times and bloodlines can tell. That said I have no use for a $12,000 weanling/yearling/horse, so I wouldn't buy any of these. Sure are fun to look at though!
