Comparing a well bred QH colt sold for $12,000 to a Friesian or Warmblood is like comparing an apple to an old sneaker, there is nothing to compare. These horses are from practically different worlds, I personally wouldn't spend a penny on either Friesian or WB seeing as I am a western rider, neither has what I look for in a horse. It probably seems the same to you. But if you look at what a good colt out of good stock can bring back from show and siring earnings, $12,000 is chump change and a very good investment.

These foals look amazing, and if they are from good proven stock and a reputable breeder then they are worth their weight in gold. I love that blue eyed paint, he is a doll!

Curly, what kind of project are you wanting to work on? I have 2 mares and a gelding from a man I know in Kansas. He also has top-of-the-line breed lines, AQHA, that is. He breeds color, and his stallion is out of Bar Money Sunny, the buckskin legend, read about him here:

Bar Money Sunny, highest champion producing Buckskin stallion

If you click on the offspring tab, you can see what his babies have produced. There is a picture of a yearling, JJM Sunny Star (The name has been changed to Bar Money Star) Which is my friend in Kansas' stud. Here's some of his achievements:
ABRA ROM Reining
ABRA Western Riding ROM
1998 ABRA Honor Roll Champion Working Ranch Horse
1998 ABRA Honor Roll Reining
1998 ABRA Honor Roll Western Riding

In 1997, Starby lost an eye. So all those honor rolls were done with ONE EYE. He is also gray. Not just any ol' ucky gray, but the silver kind, where he shines like a nickel in the sun! He has beautiful black points, and throws nothing but color. I know Kevin has 4 yearlings at the moment, and 4 weanlings too, if you are interested, I'll get you some pictures.

And I tell you what, these horses Kevin raises are some of the biggest babies you'll ever meet. Talk about get-up and go, they've got it when you ask for it. They are a part of Kevin's family from the minute they hit the ground, and are gentle enough that if they're laying out sunning, you can go lay on them! They have tremendous brain, and are too smart to get you in a bind.

I have a 6yr old mare, a 4 yr old gelding, and a 2 yr old mare, and I'll never buy from anyone else.

And his colts are selling for $1200-1500, I believe.

In fact, I'm going to call and get pictures and pedigrees anyway.

Lucky Gold Dunit DR
Palomino Stallion (4/23/09)
(by Dunit With Gold and out Lucky Doc DR)
Selling Price: $2500

Lucky Gold Dunit DR is out of one of our best producing mares. Lucky Doc DR always has a gorgeous foal and this year is no exception. If you are looking for a pretty gelding to rein or rope on take a look at this one. He has a pretty head, clean neck, and a big hip. Many of the previous colts out of this mare have made very nice horses.

The blue 2 year old mare I just bought out of Nebraska was delivered today, I wont buy a yearling until after xmas, but its sure fun to look.

The palomino, that you guys are looking at is a nice thick made horse, I saw that one in person and looked it over close.
I wish somebody who knows how would post the picture of that 08 buckskin colt they have posted. His name was "advantage" something. That horse is a grandson of Hollywood Dun It. The buckskins picture does not do him justice, I wish they would put up another.

The first one that caught my eye was this buckskin roan. I may have to find out who they sold her to and go steal her.

Miss A Spark DR
Bay Roan Filly (3/25/08)
(by Shining Sparkler and out of Miss Roan Red)
Selling Price: $1800
SOLD (Jerry Hostetler, Nebraska)
Miss A Spark DR is a class act that appears to have both the roan and buckskin color genes. She has a big hip and a pretty head. Her dam is 15-2 hands tall and this filly should mature to be a little over 15 hands.

And I think this is the one that you are talking about, curly.



Advantage Dunit DR
Buckskin Stallion (4/13/08)
(by Dunit With Gold and out of WSR Santans Advantage)
Selling Price: $2500

Advantage Dunit DR is a very balanced buckskin colt with a very good pedigree. He is by Dunit With Gold by All-Time Leading reining horse sire Hollywood Dunit. His dam is a daughter of Hickorys Advantage (LTE $130,493) and out of Miss Santana Doc who has produced the earners of over $300,000. This colt should be able to do about anything you want to do on him. We rode the oldest colt (2 year old) out of WSR Santans Advantage and he was a very nice performance prospect.

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/

Horses are no different than anything else. You get what you pay for. I've been "lucky" to have some really great horses. The reason my horses are better than the next guys horses is that I don't mind paying top dollar for a well bred horse.
Having worked in retail I know that "you get what you pay" is not necessaily true. When purchasing something like dog food (my fiance used to work for Petco) and price-wise Iams, Euk., and Science Diet were one of the most expensive with Blue Buffalo and Wellness being a tiny bit more expensive, but not by much. Iams, Euk., and Science Diet are crap foods (IMO) and you are paying not only for the nasty ingredients in them, but you are paying for commercials...where as for Blue Buffalo and Wellness their ingredients are AWESOME (no by-products, artificial perservatives or scary things) and you are paying close to the same price. So no, you don't always get what you pay for ;)
