Depends how he is advertised. If he's a registered Tinker, maybe 3-5k. But as just a furry kids pony? Well broke? $700 at best.

Think of it not as a failure but as a success in how not to do it.

Don't look in a horses mouth for a gift.

I just had to google what a Tinker was, never heard that term used to describe a gypsy cob in this country, lol.

Well he sold here for 1500 which I believe is about $2400 - although the lady that bought him then sold him on for around 3200 after a couple of months (my friend dropped price low as buyer claimed to offer loving home for life, but turned out to be a dealer after some quick profit! )

Not in the US, but in BC, Canada, he would be listed for 6 to 8k.

Oh wow! Id be extremely mad if I find out that about the buyer. Hope the horse was sold though to a good place after the dealer. That would be my biggest concern after finding that out and would make me the most mad.

in my area, NW USA, he would be in the 5 to 6K$. His novelty, as a Cob, and his feathers and the cuteness factor means he'd fetch more than a similarly sized/trained horse would.

I live in cowboy country, so fancy horses like that aren't worth much. Case in point: A few months ago, I almost bought a registered holsteiner mare who was a trained eventer for $1000. Around here, if it's not a stock horse, there's no real market for it. I couldn't see a horse like that, even as nice as he is, selling for more than $1000-1500.

ROFL! It is so funny that you think he is FANCY - here he is considered a common poor-mans breed, I don't even think he is that attractive, a bad example of a gypsy cob anyway IMO.

Heck, my draft cross (Percheron/paint) is considered a "fancy horse" by most of the cowboys around here.

Perfect example. I was just looking at horse ads on Craigslist and found two horses listed together. One was a very nice paso fino mare with tons of training. She was listed for $800. The other was a greenbroke 8yo quarter horse mare with only halfway decent bloodlines. She was listed for $2500. Around here, stock horses sell...everything else is just a novelty with little to no market.

Around here, we wouldn't know a fancy gypsy cob from a plain one. In fact, you could tell us whatever you wanted.
