I honestly don't know much at all about Arab bloodlines, so maybe I am being overly pessimistic here. But $5000 for a done-nothing stallion that is half sounds like you picked up outta the kill pens for $50 bucks? Really?
Like I said, I know nothing about arab bloodlines, maybe his are great and worth the price. His picture on CL made me shudder, he looks like the rest of his body would be a seahorse. It doesn't look AS bad on the video, but doesn't look spectacular either.
He's cute, and would be gelded as soon as I got him home. Nothing about him screams 'stallion quality' to me, but he'd make a very nice gelding.
She said $5,000 or best offer. Okay sweetie, how about I take him off your feed bill and put him on mine? After all, I'm going to be the one to pay to have him gelded and trained.
He has Khemosabi and Bask in his pedigree. So do most of the Arabian horses alive today in the U.S. That merely means he has the potential to be a decent performance horse. It says squat about anything else, including his rights to keep his testicles.
Talented Imported DWB Gelding successfully showing at Level 6 and schooling at Level 7. Uncomplicated 12 year old, 16.3H. A great opportunity for an adult amateur or junior rider looking to move up in height. Spectacular extended trot, flawless transitions, perfect lead changes. Price discounted as a result of identification of early stages of navicular. Bilateral neurectomy performed in June of 2010 with great results- Now back in full training, after all-clear from veterinarian, with absolutely no signs of sensitivity. A fantastic opportunity to experience quality and finish at a reduced price. For Sale, or Lease for $1500 per month to appropriate situation. We are a small, private facility, and we welcome you to visit Bandit and all of our other horses without pressure to purchase.
So the headline is Imported Dutch Warmblood Gelding for Sale or Lease price 45,000.
First off, price is already discounted and yet they are still asking 45,000. Don't get me wrong, I know that imported horses are rather expensive, but come on. The horse has the first signs of navicular, and surgery or not, I wouldn't be spending much on a horse that has the signs, especially not as a jumper. But what gets me the most is the lease price. The highest lease fee I've seen was about $350 bucks or so, this person want $1,500 just to lease the horse. I could go buy myself a nice horse for that amount. There is no place that I know of or have heard of that charges more than 500-600 bucks, and that generally includes training as well. Like I said though, cute enough horse, but the price is crazy.
I have a used bright purple pony halter for sale. Adjustable and in fairly good condition.
A pony will be included with the halter. I currently call this pony "Juicy" although he goes by many other names as well, depending on my mood and his behavior.
This pony is just waiting to become someone's little dream pony.
This 12.2 hand, 7 yr old pony is fantastic, if you are into the type of equine that is is constantly invading your space/vehicle, etc.
He believes he needs to be everywhere you need to be, especially when food is present.
He is in great shape, if you consider round a shape.
He never met a horse trailer he didn't like and climbs in them every chance he gets, whereupon he immediately puts his feet up on the manger so he can look out the window. He made it halfway in the back of my car the other day before I noticed and sped off.
He LOVES little kids, especially little kids with treats. He will eat them. (the kids, not the treats) Just kidding.
This pony has been worked over 2'6" jumps and lunged over 3'3" jumps. However, he likes jumping my 4 ft. Pasture gates the best.
He could absolutely be someone (else's) dream pony.
He's very affectionate, both with people(especially women) and horses(especially mares). This little guy is the neighborhood gigolo. By affectionate, I mean he will have no issue invading your personal space/private parts, if you know what I mean. He sticks his nose wherever he wants. With mares, he is lucky he is quick because he will mount mares, even the ones who have "a headache." He is not at all discriminating, although I've noticed he likes the fuller figured gals. His absolute favorite is mounting a mare while a woman is on the mare. Ask my friend Lisa, I'm sure she considered that a good time.
And when rejected? You can see that he is clearly thinking that the female is merely playing hard to get. This just makes him more determined.
This porky little guy very much thinks that he's got what the ladies want, even if they don't know it yet. He reminds me of the little guy at the bar who hits on everybody, whom you practically have to blow an air horn in his face to get rid of.
This pony has been on television, which probably adds to his ego trip.
He could be the perfect little dream pony(for someone else).
He walks/trots/canters/jumps, takes trips to the mailbox and to check the waters, goes trail riding, swims, poses on stripper poles(ask me), tests your trailer floor weight limits, tests your trailer emergency walk through doors, taste tests anything and everything, steals food from blind horses, tried to mount my dog(it is a big dog), stands tied patiently to the swing set while my son swings, loves to roll in the sand box, allows little kids to mount him from lawn chairs, buckets, swingsets, clubhouses, ladders, gates, side of the trailer and anywhere else, pulls little kids on sleds in the snow, tries to decapitate adults by running them under arena railings, and so much more.
Did I mention that he could be the perfect little dream pony(for someone else)?
"Juicy" is also a fantastic workout companion. I think I've lost at least 15 lbs since I've had him. I've never run so much in my life, either after him or from him. Though his little flabby butt cheeks closely resemble two pigs fighting under a blanket, he got me in wonderful shape.
I firmly believe he's a dream pony (someone's else's dream, that is).
Call me if you want a used purple halter and are a glutton for punishment.
