Blue Roan draft at ac4h

I just saw this mare when I was doing my usual browsing of the auction horses at AC4H. If I had any use for such a big girl, she'd be in my barn this weekend. You can see her on the www.ac4h.com, like on "broker owned horses" in the left hand column, she is on page 1. Its rather stupid that you can't go see these horses, you basically just buy them off the descriptions online. She is $500

I would have beat you to her last night if only she were a gelding. (I've got weird neighbors and a mare is not an option.) She really looks like there is some Brabant in there somewhere.

drafts seem to sell quickest on there. Every draft listed has been adopted

Pretty girl but 15 years old an likely unbroken? Eh, that is an awful big horse to try to saddle break at such a late age.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Wow! She's stunning. If I was ever thinking of a draft, I'd love something like her.

Lol SMRobs where's your sense of adventure? I once saddle broke a 16 yr old belgian mare that barely lead when I got a hold of her. Took me for the ride of my life the first time...but after that she was one of the best trail horses I ever sat on =)

Not saying that I couldn't do it or wouldn't try but I think I wouldn't really want to tempt fate with something like that.

Lol yea I was young and stupid and I bounced a lot better back then =P Although the good thing about the full drafters that I have worked with is that they can bounce and hop and leap but it takes em a good try to really get the big bucks in so I never came off her. It's the half drafts that have the power AND the maneuverability and athleticism to really fling themselves around that are tough to sit when they want you off.
