    My thoughts? The first horse OP mentioned looks like he could cover some ground and get you where you need to go, give him a job to do and he'd be happy... After of course you got him calmed down.

    Right now as he is (I think somebody already said he was sold?) I think the rider has never totally opened him up and put miles on him. Never got to the point where the rider could move him on a loose rein, maybe never thought that was important? I know getting a horse to open up and go some place (miles) does wonders for the head set and confidence.

    Frankly there are, for that amount of money, a zillion horses out there that are flashy, calm, older, easy going, broke, and with miles on them for that $ or less. In my way of thinking if you are going to spend that $, get a horse from where ever you want (like from smrobs) under your allotted amount and just pay the shipping...

    He's pretty, but way overpriced as already mentioned. Since help has been offered, maybe getting a horse that is further away , but cheaper & shipping it, would be another avenue to think about?

    The horse has apparently SOLD.


    I , too, am flattered to be considered amoungst the "knowledgeable". That's very sweet of you. Fact is, there are so many, many more knowledgeable folks here than myself. I am the first to admit it. Thank goodness they weighed.

    So, was it YOU who bought the horse?

    Another certainly not expert person, but very flattered. I certainly have bought my share of disasters, and still tend to come home with the first one I look at......Shoot-DH won't let me go alone anymore-EVER!

    Get some sleep-I don't miss working nights for sure, and remember that sick tired feeling only too well.

    Hi guys! Only have a moment to respond to just a couple of the latest posts (woke up to find a dead-broke...DISHWASHER...(dumb horse humor, sorry!) ,& was dealing with getting another this afternoon (arghh!) & now, well, getting ready to return to work and to the many indescribable joys of caretaking for the seriously mentally ill and criminally insane! Ahh...peaceful relaxation at it's FINEST! Ha... ;)

    Ok. #1: NO. It wasn't I who purchased that horse.

    #2: I realize now that I probably sounded like a TOTAL arse by mentioning only a FEW of the so tremendously knowledgeable and amazingly experienced horsepersons here on HF, in my opening post. I actually feel that nearly ALL of the members of HF whom I regularly see posting have amazing information and years of horse trials and tribulations lending them the "expert" badge, in at least a few areas of horsemanship, in my mind. I called out those who came to mind readily, but by no means was that meant to be an "all inclusive" list of "experts"!

    #3. I am praying for some free time at work this night to do what I had intended to this afternoon! If so, y'all can look forward to a bevy of overly-long dissertations about my thoughts regarding "smarter" horse shopping, thanks to again, the statements made in all of the posts received. :0)

    Off to shower...where DOES THE TIME GO?

    Did anyone else notice that the pedigree they posted for this horse shows a foal date of 1992 not 1999?

    The pedigree was wrong all together. The horse wasn't an arabian either, lol.

    Hi guys...I apologize for not returning to this thread sooner. I've had a few minutes lately to get on HF, and haven't wanted to even think about the intricacies if actual horse shopping this past week.

    Life at work has been nearly unbearable and I'm trying to focus on making a decision about possibly taking an alternate job offer vs. toughing it out in hopes there may be some management changes soon...thus, in a nutshell, I just haven't had the mental energy to focus on the intricacies of the horse choosing world, if that makes sense?

    ALL THAT IS saving my sanity right now, side from DH and best friend, IS MY BARN TIME! TOO bad I don't already own my horse...that would really help my mental state presently. Please don't feel I've blown this off. And thank you for asking.... :0)

    This horse is a '92 foal?

    You are not seriously considering paying 10,000 for that old a horse are you?

    One place they are saying he was foaled in '99, but in pedigree they are showing, which may or may not belong to horse as looks like Allbreed one to me, or something similar, that one says foaled in '92.

    Something is fishy here to me, and I would be worried about dealing with these people if they can't get foaling dates straight.

    And they are calling him a Paint but he is NOT. He is Arabian/QH X.

    And that is if he is even papered. Which I doubt.
