What do you think?

I'm curious as to what you think my boys worth is, I'm NOT selling him, but I thought it'd be interesting as to what you would price him. How much YOU think he would sell for.

Completely sound, never had any issues in the past.
He's a 7 year old, Seal brown/brown gelding. He IS off the track, been off the track for 8 months. Still green but LOTS of potential. His name is Sunny Serenade(not that it matters).

He's got a great mind, lovely willing personality. Sane.. Which is always good. He's gotten very good at being consistent with his speed at each gait. Isn't a puller on a normal day, doesn't need leg. Just ask him to go and he'll go. Really good with loading and unloading on the trailers. He has ribboned in the hunter ring. He does fine without a bit. He doesn't have any bad habits such as weaving, cribbing, or wind sucking.

His conformation isn't horrible, reaaaally high wither which is painful for bareback as I've learned, his back is just a BIIIIT long, his neck ties in low, hind legs are on the straighter side, and his feet are small.

He's a lovely jumper, nice position, well balanced. Typically very brave to the fence. He will take the long or short distance if you ask for it, never stopped at a jump on me. He's going to be a jumper, but he could also make it in the hunters ring or possibly EQ. He bends just fine and does flying lead changes without a problem. He's also a perfect trail horse as long as there's other horses with him.

Very social horse, doesn't do as well when kept alone, very friendly with other horses and people.




No critique on my position in the picture, believe me I know there are quite a few faults in it.

If you have another other questions just ask. I probably forgot a few things.

Well I sure have plenty of those. I probably have over 700 pictures of him by now.

















Sorry about the size.

Well I'd have to say probably 3,00-4,500 . Oh and his color would be a dark bay.

Really? He looks brown to me, with the light brown points on his muzzle etc..

I don't know how often you jump him, but from second hand experience one should only jump their horse once or twice a week. I love to jump my horses as well but also know it can be hard on a horses legs.

It's very hard to say, I think. It really depends on where you're located, and who is looking to buy at that point in time.

Problem you would run into though, I think, is he doesn't seemed geared towards anything. Like he doesn't seem like an all-rounder, wouldn't be a trail horse, doesn't really seem to be jumping enough to be a showjumper, so who would you be trying to sell him to? This, combined with him being an OTTB, could make things problematic.

Although if you're not planning on selling him, with more training he could suit a more specified market.

Lol, what brought that on? I usually jump him once every other week.

Oh, and that's interesting. Because he IS registered as a dark bay. But in person he looks 100 percent seal brown/brown.
