She's a cutie! But you're all the way in Nebraska O.O I'm sure shipping alone would put me in the ground!

I think knee chips would depend on the individual horse. I'd contact the owners and see what vet records and xrays they can provide you. It could end up being a nightmare, or you could get a nice horse at a good price that requires maintainence.

I can't believe I forgot, but canterusa.org is great too if you want to buy right off the track. You need to be much more careful though. I don't know your experience, but bring someone who knows how to spot problems.

Handsome and Gentlemanly 8 YO Gelding

Stunning, Big Bodied 6 YO Mare

Sweet and Easy Going 4 YO Mare

Pretty 4 YO Black Mare

This one sounds nice - unraced. Didn't say anything about temperment though.
Hello Holly - Lovely 6 YO unraced mare

Big Bodied and Good Looking 4 YO Gelding - Price Reduced!

I could keep going all day. I love looking at the site. Keep in mind these horses are being sold by the trainers, not by any adoption agency. And all the horses are coming off for a reason, and trainers always say it's because they are too slow. You have to do research on the horse before you fall in love.

Here's the index page.

I think my favorite out of those is this one: Big Bodied and Good Looking 4 YO Gelding - Price Reduced! However he went from $2500 to $500, I'm not sure why..

I would definitely seek the advice of a trainer or vet to take a look at whatever I decide. I am definitely taking my time deciding, though. I don't want to do anything on impulse, because I have been known to do that... lol

I think my top three right now are the bay mare, the chestnut mare, and that chestnut gelding.

Did you receive my pm about the nice horse in NY? I'm not sure that my message actually went through properly. Let me know and if you didn't receive it and if you have not found a horse, I'll resend it.

Just a note, the Amish are VERY big into Saddlebreds. That is where a great majority of Saddlebred Rescue's horses come from. Some even raise and show. They made up easily half of the crowd when The Tattersalls sale was still going on. They love to get away with as much "fancy" as they can.

I actually didn't know that! But after looking at a few rescue ASBs, I've seen some that were 'amish trained'.

LTS. I've been trying to send you a pm about a nice horse a lady has for sale. However, each time I 'send' it, the page turns to something strange, so I am not sure if you are receiving them. If not, pm me and I'll send it in an answer. Maybe that will work.
