REGISTERED QUARTER HORSE-YEARLING-LIVER CHESTNUT FILLY FOR SALE

GORGEOUS REGISTERED FILLY THAT WILL BE THAT BEAUTIFUL LIVER CHESTNUT COLOUR - WELL BRED - SWEET GENTLE PERSONALITY - IS THE FIRST HORSE TO GREET YOU IN THE PASTURE. SHE SHOULD MATURE AT 15 HH AND IS BRED TO DO IT ALL. SHE WOULD MAKE A GREAT 4 H FILLY.

Holy crap... That first picture really weirded me out... Slap a star and snip on that filly and she would look EXACTLY identical to my little boy that I picked up in November... Wow. But I got him for $100. Not sure what the horse economy is like in Canada, but that little girl wouldn't go for $750 down here. Not that she's not a decent looking horse, the economy just sucks.

Not around here she wouldn't! Maybe if she was a two year old and started under saddle. Not sure what the horse market is like in AB though.

Just for example, we bought 7 colts a few years back, 4 weanlings, 3 yearlings. They were top bred QHs and Paints. (Sire Wright On and Muddy out of Lena's Wright On out of Smart Little Lena. Dams were equally well bred), this was when the market was good, and we picked them up for $450 a weanling and $700 a yearling. That's when prices were good. In 2011 we sold one of those mares as a 6 year old, with a bay (non registered) colt at her side for $475. Prices are in the dumps.

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

Wanna talk about crappy markets - our rescue just got in a Magnificent larger welsh pony mare and her colt who's daddy was a Morgan - absolutely Gorgeous. Even at 3 months old I'd say his conformation couldn't be better, but we'll see what he grows into. Oh and mommy's a broke pony-ride lesson pony.

Hmm, I'm not too sure about the horse market here. I don't think it's great, but doing a quick perusal of the ads, I see alot between $1000-$3000 and plenty that go higher than that. Not that one could say that's a good indicator because who knows if those horses actually sell. Aside from looking at ads, I don't really know how strong the market here is.

even in a weak market you pay what you get for. Of yourse there are the occasional free and cheap horses that are very decent, always been, but a good foal from a reputable breeder will still sell for $800 to $1500. Or I can pick one up at the killer auction for $50 to $150 - at the end both will eat the same amount of hay, but will they be the same once started under saddle?

True. Maybe I was just lucky to find a nice registered AQHA with good bloodlines and conformation like him at that price. But still... If people are buying in my area right now, they're looking for a good deal, not just their money's worth. We've got the worst hay shortage I've ever seen (granted, I've only been around 23 years) and the last thing most folks want is another mouth to feed. I really hope the hay situation, and the market, picks up for the sake of the animals.

I've sold three horses lately - one for $4000, and two for $1500 (and one was an unbroke nine year old gelding).
It's on a GREAT market here, but it's far from horrible.

Thanks WS. Seeing as I don't buy and sell horses, it's difficult for me to know. I didn't think it was terrible, but I think it's been better. Although I know it's definitely been worse too.

Yeah, it all depends. The young ones (the two I have left are my two and three year olds that aren't started) are the ones the don't have much of a market.
Older started horses are still going pretty good.
Nothing compared to what it was five years ago, though.

*Face palm*



Red peruvian paso Stallion - $1500


I am selling my 4yr old stallion I am asking $1500 OBO.

Color: Red
Height: about 16 ˝ - 17 hands
Gender: Male (Stud)

He is broken, trailer loads, lunges etc.

This is a great horse probably the best stud a person could own. He is a very quiet stud I don't have any problems with him being around mares, if you didn't know you would probably think he was a gelding.
All he needs is someone who has time to ride him, the only reason I am getting rid of him is because I am transferring for my job and I am unable to find a place I can keep him. I hate to sale him but he needs a better home and someone who will ride him and take good care of him.


Here goes a video
