LOL, you aren't the only one who sees things through draft colored glasses . The only 2 foals I have any experience with are both draft crosses. I consider my yearling (the black in my avatar) rather dinky and he's standing 13.3...taller than some folks 2 and 3 year olds . My other guy (who will be 2 in a month, the sorrel in my avatar) is standing 15.3 and probably weighs close to 1000...maybe more.

I would bet money on rafe being at least 1200lb. My Sonador is 1100lb at 15'3

That is entirely possible LOL. Even though he's pretty fat, he is still gangly through his shoulders and hips so I don't know if a weight tape would get him within a couple hundred pounds of correct. I may try it anyway one of these days.

Yup. Aires stands around 15.2 and I'd say he's 1000lbs, maybe even 1100lbs. All I know is that it's like moving a Sherman tank trying to push him out of the way when he doesn't want to move...especially when he doesn't want to square up for me when I'm working with his feet (which is pretty much always when we're trying to do his back feet).

They apparently can't decide what color this mare is either!
Registered Quarter Horse Mare

Registered Quarter Horse Mare - $3500 (Prescott)

Very quiet but has plenty of get and go. At tried and true on the trail as can be. Excellent in the arena. She knows everything. She is one of the prettiest mares you will ever see. Chestnut/Roan/Dunn

--> Seriously, people! How can I know if I'm interested in a horse if you don't tell me how old she is, can't decide what color she is (there's a big difference between chestnut, roan and dun), and don't let me see what her conformation is like?! I hate ads without pics for this exact reason!! (Not that I'm anywhere near in the market for a horse now, but when I was...)

OH! Love this one!! Really?! You bought the horse without riding it first?! I only did that because mine is an unbroke two-year-old...what's your excuse, dude?! And how are you going to know if YOU can handle the horse if you have someone else "test drive" it for you?! That's like saying you can handle a Corvette at 130MPH because you sat in the passenger seat while a professional driver took it for a spin!

Need someone to test drive a horse for me (Paulden)

Bought what is supposed to be a good riding horse. I need a good rider to go with me on a trail ride. I am older and don't want to take the chances I used to take. I believe the horse is okay but people lie about this kind of thing. If we have any problems we bail off and walk back. Mark

The Sherman Tank because I know exactly how you feel and the "test drive" because I have a very strange feeling that maybe this guy has already ate dirt at least once from said horse.

I kind of got that feeling with the "test drive" guy as well. Maybe he wants to see if it's him that's the problem or the horse? Lol What can I say? I live in a VERY small town in the middle of nowhere. Heck, if he'd pay me, I'd "test drive" the horse for him.

I'm used to a little 14.2hh arab cross gelding. If he *thought* you wanted him to move, he would...all you had to do was look at him!

Dumbest parents award?

The ad doesn't really say for sure, but I have a feeling these are not really horsey people? This is NOT something I would allow a 14 year old to do without constant supervision by an experienced adult trainer - guess I'm just getting too old? At least she's wearing a helmet!

----

My 14 year old daughter wanted to break this gelding, because he was so sweet, so I told her that he can stay as long as she doesn't get bucked off while breaking him. Well she did NOT get bucked from the start and got through 21 clean long rides. Well since he is young and green. She wasn't paying attention, the horse spooked and she got thrown, we think it was because of the storm and all of the thunder and lightning, but now this sweet little 5 year old is for sale! He is so sweet and comes when you call him. He needs someone who will train him through the summer and give him the love and care he deserves. He is sweet, loveable, and is just strikingly beautiful! He is so laid back!! He is best friends with our shetland pony. I am asking 800 but I WANT AN OFFER!!!! He could be a dressage, jumper, western pleasure, barrel horse, or just a trail horse prospect. No vices, has been around four-wheelers, tractors, and cars. He ties, bathes, gets in the trailor, saddles. Needs an experienced rider because he is young and again green, but is so laid back! He has been rode down miles of trails, up and down canyons, through rivers, and down the road and has a really nice chest on him. No spook from cars. Please call xxx. We will also respond instantly from email. Please make an offer! Video on request.
