I don't like her neck. I know that's the ideal but...

I've heard of paintings seling for similar prices - I know what I'd prefer! lol If I paid that much for a horse I'd be too paranoid of injuring it to ride it or anything

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ~William Shakespeare

Heh, maybe she poops diamonds or something :P I would assume they bought her as a broodmare...those must be some bloodlines.

Edit: You know...I should have put the US dollar price in the title, which is actually 1.7 million...I always forget that site is based out of NZ.

She is a Monogramm daughter, his offspring are spectacular and not only are they gorgeous but they are extremely athletic too.

The words, "I'll take two" spring to mind, only cos of my weird sense of humor.

i know that bloodlines are important but sheesh! yes she is beautiful, but she would be just as susceptible of galloping around her paddock and injuring herself as any common brumby. personally, i wouldn't pay that for any horse, but maybe if i had that sort of money to throw around, it would be a different story lol

and the 'pooping diamonds'.........ouch!!! lmao

WOW! That's a hefty chunk of change!! I hope she'd drop some rubies and emeralds too!!!

She must be one amazing horse!!!!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
