I am considering putting my beloved horse up for sale/lease because I won't have the necessary time for him in college. He is a 10 yr. Old, 14.2 Doc Bar bred AQHA who is a true all-arounder. He has done and can (successfully) do anything you ask of him: barrels, poles, all the gaming events, breakaway, daubing, penning and sorting, working rancher, drill, trail, western pleasure, reining, huntseat, dressage, and he's also a showmanship machine (qualified for OHSET and 4-H state and would be competitive at the AQHA level)! He's qualified for OHSET and 4-H state in both performance and timed events every year since I've had him (3 years). There's really nothing this horse cannot do because he is incredibly intelligent, willing, and athletic. He's got some SERIOUS wheels and wicked turns and has the potential to be a pro-caliber barrel or roping horse if that's what you choose to focus him on. He currently runs low 15's (15.0's) in Texas barrels without even running into the 1st turn, and because I don't have the means to transport him to a lot of races I only get to run barrels on him about 5 times a year. What I'm wondering is, about how much is his value right now, if it's possible to tell? I want him to go to a perfect home first and foremost but I also need the money for college. Thank you!
