Some of you may have read another thread that I had posted regarding this mare. I was going to try and use her for a broodmare in the next few years and get a foal from her. But, my mom was down at the owner's house tonight, and it was mentioned that they are thinking of selling this mare. Now I don't know if they were feeling my mom out to see what she had to say about the mare in regards to if we were interested, or if they would really sell her.
They were given the mare for free. The owner's brother breeds AQHA's for the track. She didn't make the cut for the track but in the barrel arena, I think she could do some damage. With proper training of course.
Information about mare:
2008 Brown Appendix AQHA.
15.1/15.2 hands approx. 1100 pounds.
UTD on all vet and farrier care.
Sire: Illegal Runaway Quarter Horse
Dam: Lill Bita Zevi Quarter Horse
I'd consider her green. She's very nice on the trails, but she's never had "proper" training. She doesn't move off of leg pressure. She direct reins. She has NOT been ridden consistently in the past. Was "started" on speed events this past spring and some playing around in the fall. She's trotting patterns but I don't think anything has actually "clicked" with her quite yet. She's more the type of horses where you point, kick and go. She'd definitely need some work to get her up to par.
She's a very pretty girl. Has a BEAUTIFUL chest and shoulder. She's got a sweet personality. In your pocket type horse. At least she is for me. Whenever I'm over there, she's always around me begging for attention, following my around. I can catch her easily while her owner seems to have more difficulty.
What would you consider a reasonable price range for her? With her pedigree alone, I would think she'd be worth quite a bit.
Picture is from her as a 3 year old.
