7 yr old QH that's 13.3 hands!?

I have been posting her as 18mnths but looked at her papers today and realized she is 22 months old, not 18mnths. I have talked to several people about coming to see her but no one has showed, I'm not sure if it was due to the holidays or what but I will not budge off her pricing as it is extremely low for a filly out of Secretariat, its the last of a dying breed. If you think $450 is too much then you must not realize that that's only 2 possibly 3 months worth of their care right there so if you can't afford that then I would be worried about her getting the proper care. She does come w/ an adoption form requiring her to continue w/ her vet care as she is a rescue horse & she has been through enough as it is.
If you have any questions, please call me @ [number removed] but please do not waste my time, I have dealt w/ that a lot lately and I would just like to find her a home that wont put her through anything worse.
Will consider trading for tanning bed or utility trailer or other items that don't eat, lol

Her papers are as follows;
Turn-To
Best Turn
Sweet Clemintine
High Brite
Forli
Spray
Bower
Goin All In
Nearctic
Explodent
Venomous
Donna Hajji
Cormorant
Donna's World
Worldy Reason

Norther Dancer
Storm Bird
South Ocean
Storm Cat
Secretariat
Terlingua
Crimson Saint
Ride The Storm
Roberto
Lear Fan
Wac
Le Famo
Blakeney
Morna
Morrya


i think this horse is way to skinny to be asking 450 for it. Even if it does have good bloodlines. Someone needs to take the poor thing offer of their hands.

I am selling 2 adult male horses. We are asking $250 per horse, or best offer.

If you have any questions, contact me via my email.

thats it? No elaboration?

i have a 5 year old 17 hand high QUATER horse . He loads very good with out any problems he is 100% sound!
Also I have 2 ropin saddles and another saddel all the right rivets have pulled out but easy to fix askiin $600.00
For horse a the three saddles

a saddle is no rivets and a quater horse...
I'm sorry I saw this...this makes me sick

14 1/2 hands. Is that the same thing as 14.5 hands? No wonder this horse needs an "experienced rider", the one she has doesn't even have a **** clue how big he / she is. Thanks for mentioning the gender and the breed too. Cause all I needed to know was that it wasn't registered and sucks to ride. Definitely interested


Why can't you have a half on there? They might have meant its bigger than 14hh but smaller than 14.1hh.
I have a friend who has a mare registered as a horse because she is 14.3hh and a half, if she was 14.3hh she would have been registered as a pony.
Nice of them to put a very informative add on there though isn't it lol. (not)

For it to be a pony it has to be 14.1 or smaller. Anything 14.2 and up is a horse.

There are some breeds that are still horses at 14h - Arabs, as an example. In any case, I find it nearly impossible to measure a horse to the 1/2" and I'm sure they are not trying to be that accurate, so I'm pretty confident that 14 1/2h means midway between 14 and 15h for those people - or 14.2h for the real world.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Oh how sad people can be. I have to say though for pure entertainment this has been wonderful... haven't laughed so hard in ages, or cringed as much either.

The way I have learned is that there are breeds that will always be considered horses, like Arabs. But
Individually
they are still considered ponies if they are under 14.2.

Sunny, you are not wrong really.
It really just matters what you are going to do with them. If you are going to show hunters or jumpers then yes, they are considered a pony.
If you are not then they are simply a small horse if their breeding dictates they are a horse at those sizes.

??? Not sure what your problem is with that one? I knew a registered Quarter Horse that was only 13.3 hands. While technically ponies, the papers were still with the quarter horse registry and not the quarter pony registry. There are some lines out there that pretty consistently produce shorter QHs.

BTW - that 2nd mare you posted that was so thin was just so sad but way too common these days.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

She was a games pony and apparently could have been registered as a pony if she was half a hand smaller.
I don't know how that works though I always thought 14.2hh and below was a pony, but I've been told it's recently been changed here and I know a lot of 14.3hh ... equines... have been competing in the pony section of shows.
It's confusing :S why can't they just keep the rules the same??


And back on subject....
I looked at a nice gelding about an hour from here, and he was just that, nice. Untill you got on him, he went around sweetly for about two circles of walk and then BAM here we go rodeo and I was off. (you literally would have needed superglue on your bum to stay on that one!)
So a few days later I looked on trademe again and saw he had been relisted. And the owner had added underneath the details "Horse has problems" - No kidding lady he turned bronc on me because of a previous injury that was not able to be seen or felt from anyone but him!! (I found out about the injury after the horse had been PTS, RIP Singa)
Then a friend of mine enquired about him only to be told the horse had to be taken away and was not to be ridden on the property... Well I don't know about you but heck why not, lets go and buy a horse with problems without riding him first... Yeah no that SCREAMS dodgy to me!
