Subject: Phoenix buckskin HG Esquire offspring

Denise,

I will be offering Baileys Khaffe Latte for sale in Phoenix soon. He will 4
Years old on May 5. His sire is H G Esquire and Dame is Phoebe Snow. He is
Approx 15.3hh. He trailers, trims, lunges, in hand leads,and bathes like a pro.
He has been saddled but not ridden. He is a quick and steady learner. If you are
Interested or know someone who is, his asking price is $15,000.
Pictures and video can be provided if requested.

XXXXXXXXXX

So according to the above at least he has been handled???

Not being snarky or anything, just genuinely curious as to why his price dropped so dramatically from $15k to $1k. I know the horse market is crap in AZ right now, but even my coming 4yo draft cross gelding would fetch more than $1k, even up here in cowboy country. Really wish I had the money/time for another one. I'd snatch him up. He's my favorite color and I like the way he looks.

I really could not answer that but agree. I thought I recalled that she sent me something a bit ago and thank goodness I was able to locate in order to be able to share.

HE HAS THE SAME BIRTHDAY AS ME!
You know, I really like him. His parents are beautiful, too. I'm not surprised that they had to drop his price from 15,000, though, that is a huge price to be asking for him... 1000 is much more reasonable, I'm not sure why they didn't start with that in the first place!
You know, I live in Tucson, and my mom is going to be looking for a horse soon/ eventually... I'll be keeping him in mind...

I don't get why people are concerned whether or not the stallion owner is posting an ad for one of his foals. If I came across one that I've bred, and I couldn't buy it back, I'd do the same thing. What's the big deal? Denise is hardly a money-driven stallion owner. LOL
I hardly think it has anything to do with Esquire's breeding fee and more to do with doing what to can for those that you've produced.

It is with sadness that I write that sharing that a son of our stallion was available has not been affective in simply sharing his availability but rather opinions of his worth, lack of, what I should do or not do and what is the proper way this should be handled. Reminder.....this thread is about a sale horse and nothing else.

Personally, I think he's weedy looking. Oh, and some people don't think breeding show horses is all that and a box of cracker jacks. From my view, more harm is done to the breed than any building on the awesome foundations you were given. This goes for all breeds, not just Arabians. But what do I know, I'm just a non breeding, non showing lover of horses, not in the "business."

What's the point of your posts? Are you going to lose sleep because she posted a thread about one of her stallions foals? Is it THAT important you that she should buy him back?
You honestly haven't said anything that's relevent so I'm not sure why you keep going. If you don't like him, fine. Don't buy him. This is a for sale ad, not a critique and if you have no interest in the horse, I would think you'd go look elsewhere.

I think he is stunning, for that price if he were in the right country I would definitely want a look!

Hopefully he finds a good home.

Adding what info I have located

If anyone actually goes to see him and/or purchases him from this board, please if you will just let me know that he is safe and who has him. Would love to stay in touch!

Geeeeez .. some folks have nothing better to do .. *rolls eyes*

Denise, I admire you trying to help find a home for one of Esquire's kids .. it's the least a "daddy-owner" can do. I hope you're able to keep in touch with his future owners and he grows up to do great things.

Give Esqure a kiss for me as I've always been insanely crazy about him ....
