She's just a regular trail horse, not too spooky, just 'general'. Around here, your lucky if you get $600-$800 for a good 'general' horse 5-12 years old. Since she's not a trained roping, barrel, head/heel horse, and she's considered 'old', she's going to have a really tough time selling her. I was darned lucky to get $600 for my four year old general mare, and she's broke enough for children and green beginners to ride.
Ohohoh, I almost forgot about this guy:
"Oreo is a 4 year old paint mustang stallion. He stands 14 hands tall and is green broke but never finished... He never bucked or even got skittish when I saddlebroke him.
He threw a beautilful paint colt with a 4 year old quarterhorse mare this year and I just seem to get my kids to ride him and finish training him so I want to find him a good home with someone
That will be able to finish training him and ride him. He comes to the fence when I call and loves to be scratched and rubbed but I just don't have time to finish him out and don't have
The heart to cut a horse that throws such beautiful colts. "
"I don't have the heart to cut an unpapered, barely broke, poorly put together 'mustang' (probably just a poorly bred QH) because he makes paint babies."
I mean really
. I bet he would make a fine riding gelding, but a stallion? Nu uh. If he's so sweet and gentle, castrate him now before it's too late
