Talking I am getting a 4 month old Tennessee Walker/Spotted Horse mare

I'm getting a 4 month old mare her name is Barbie Doll she is worth 1000 dollars but I'm getting her for 500 dollars she is a baby she just has to be worked with.I've seen her mom and her daddy and her.Her mom is a Spotted Horse her name is Indian Princess she's not registered because the previous owner didnt have papers for her and her daddy is a Tennessee Walking Horse his name is Claxton's Mark he is registered.Her daddy's grandpaw and great grandpaw were world grand champion Tennessee Walkers.Their names were Mark of Carbon and Pusher.she comes from a very great bloodline.I'm supposed to go back later this week to buy her she is a wonderful horse.And to beat it all the owner wants her to go to a good home and she would have it with me.Let me know what you THINK Thanks

Id try to do the leg work and get the papers, never know ya might need em, or wanna sell a baby one day,. 500 dollars isnt bad for a young untrained unregestered walker, If you have the skills facility and time to train it yourself. If you have to pay a trainer you are way better off buying an older trained horse you can ride. You can get a pretty good, trained ready to go walker for 1000 in your area.

I suppose its your decision... But I still feel your other horse needs a lot more care and attention before you bring on another one, let alone one who isn't trained. From what I've read on this forum, you're a beginner, and as the saying goes, green and green make black and blue.

That, and if this owner wants a good home for his horse and sees your skinny guy, I'd assume he's going to rethink the matter. Not saying none of this is possibly, but give it time and get some more experience is my opinion here.

What happened to the mare you were trading goats for? Is this filly in addition to that one, or did that deal fall through?

I've never heard that. That's a good one. Green and green don't go though everyone's right. SOMEONE has to know what they're doing.
I've worked and sold a black TWH with Pusher bloodlines. But he was 7 and already trained and shown, he was also registered and his father was world grand champion...he sold for $750..he wasn't my horse, I was just asked to ride him and advertise him.
Have you had experience with gaited horses? If you care about bloodlines and showing(the impression I got from your mentioning his ansestory) then you really need experience with gaited horses..saddleseat is way different. You may already know this. But even that gelding that was totally trained I wouldn't put a beginner on him..he behaved BEAUTIFULLY for me. But he didn't do well on a loose rein. He rode in a belham with CONSTANT contact.
Just a thought
I personally wouldn't pay 500 for. 4 month old. You've got some tine before you can ride so your looking at lots of ground work. For 500 you can get a fully trained horse. Heck, there's a 2 year old pinto I'm working with now who's broke for an beginner. He walks trots cantered crosses creeks backs will even canter from a standstill. $850. He'll mature at around 15.2 .
In the end you'll do what you want. But you asked for opinion's. I wouldn't buy a 4 month old if I were you and I have 11 years experience..I'd reccomend you spend a little more and get yourself a fully trained horse to learn on. It takes A LOT of patience to train young horses..

Since we are talking price and bloodlines, I gave away an 8 yr old registered black Jose Jose baby just because his behavior was poor and he needed more training than I have the skills to provide(especially since I don't have gaited horse experience). I mightve charged a little for him if I hadn't found the absolute perfect home for him and he was a rescue so I wanted a good home first and foremost. I know a show and trail experienced twh 3yr old out of great bloodlines selling for $1800. No way I would pay $500 for an unregistered 4 month old. Especially is as others are saying, you are inexperienced. Bad idea.

All I have to say is get a d*** good trainer if you want this foal. My personal belief is that you shouldnt do this. Looking at your other horse, he could use some groceries so maybe use that money for some quality hay and grain instead. You aren't going to want to hear this but you need to face the truth before you get hurt.

I agree with the above posters. It takes more than one year of experience to train a horse. Even if your husband is experienced, you still have another horses that needs care. I have been riding for 7 years and there would be no way I would even consider attempting to train a horse, so I'm not sure why you (or anyone for that matter) with only one year of experience would think you are capable of training a horse. 500 for a young, untrained horse, whether registered or not, is overpriced. In today's market people are practically giving away great, well trained horses, and 500 would be a much better investment to the horse you already have. If you're set on getting another horse, though, I would suggest finding an older, well trained, "been there done that" horse. Just because she lowered her price from 1000 to 500 for you does not mean you're getting a good deal.
