That is actually one I really want to go see. They were originally asking the $3000 for her.
If they went down that far, I bet they take $500 cash now.

I have a 4 1/2yo mare I am training now. I have had her a few years though but she is despirate for a pasture buddy that wont torture her. She is low man on the totum pole and every bites and kicks her to death so she has to stay alone. I will try and get a hold of them tomorrow and go look at the little girl.

Yes I know. They actually have pictures of them riding her somewhere. I don't think I saved them when they sent them to me. I feel bad for her. At first they price her like she was gold but I guess they see she wasnt going anywhere for that price.

We have the same problem here, I regularly surf around looking at horses for sale. The biggest drop I saw was for a nice warmblood filly that went from $10k to $1k OBO in a matter of 2 months time.

Just go to an auction and 'rescue' your own. You can buy some pretty nice yearlings and 2 year olds here at the local auction for $100.00 to $1000.00 depending on breeding and looks. Some really well-bred and really nice one go through for under $500.00 every sale.

The main thing with any new horse (but particularly from an auction) is to isolate them for 2 weeks. We give young ones Penicillin for 3 days. It will keep them from getting Strangles if they are not already carrying it. It won't help for the Flu or Rhino.

If you handle a new horse, do it at the end of the day and do not go and handle your other horses after handling them. People and dogs spread most diseases from new horses to other horses.

we have about an acre dry lot on the back side of our property where not other horses are that we use to isolate. Our auctions so far suck. The only thing I have seen are used and abused old twhs and then horses up in their late teens and early twenties. The only reason I wanted a non gaited is because we have three walkers and two that are getting rode six days a week and I really just want another a qh/paint or non gaited mutt. Not specific about breed or color. I do prefer mares over geldings anyday.

When ever I use a big search engine like google, yahoo, or aol it locks my computer up for some reason. I can go directly to any website but as soon as I use a search engine my computer just stops.
