    He's not a barrel horse yet, only a prospect. The seller is also selling another horse, another 5 year old that's registered with pretty good lines and started on heeling. She's selling him for $500, maybe she is just trying to get the boys off her feed bill. She said she had had alot of surgeries and doesn't ride anymore (it seems that is a very common reason, maybe not true.) And I like the idea of the trial period.

    It may not be a 'too good to be true' situation. The horse market is horrible right now and the cost of hay is rising. People are dumping quality horses just because they can't afford to feed them. Best of luck!

    I speak from experience... I just got a sound horse for $1. It happens.

    Ok! I also happened to be driving my the pound today, and they have like 20 horses out there.. Adoption fees are $100 and I can be more sure of the horse's health. But they all look fairly young like 2-3.. What do you think?

    Well, can you afford to wait the 1 or 2 maybe 3 years-paying board all the time -until the younglings grow out and mature?

    Well, I planned on getting one of the ones that is older 3 or 4 if they have one and start training in probably 6 months.

    Why not continue to save $ for awhile, so when the perfect horse comes along, you'll have the $ for the PPE as well as paying for the horse outright instead of payment plans?
