ELLA: Reg. 5-yo AQH mare

Posting this as a favor to a friend. If she is not sold by Saturday (Sept. 17) she will go to Veedersburg Sale Barn in Indiana.

Ella is a beautiful palomino mare. Ella is located in Hoopeston, Illinois. She's the low-lady on the totem pole (boarded with the owner's friends 4-year-old gelding, and owner's 20-something gelding).

These are pictures from when Chelsey, the owner, first got her. When they took her on, they hoped that Kenny (the gentleman) would eventually be able to ride with them. But Ella didn't click with him.

"We took Ella as a favor for a family member who was going through a divorce and needed a new home for her fast. Unfortunately, she was only a pet at her previous home, and hasn't been ridden at all until we got her.

Since we have had her, she has been lunged almost daily (with and without full tack), a rider on once, and did great with all. She is green broke and just needs someone to finish her out. She has a very smooth movement.

Ella has GREAT ground manners! I would trust kids around her. She is very gentle and loving. She was on the thin side when she can but is putting on weight very well and with the work she is all muscle. Once she is filled out completely she will be a very shapely and well muscled mare which would probably excell in halter class. Her color is gorgous and she has a split mane so it falls on both sides of her neck. She learns super fast, so she has a LOT of potential for anything you need her to do. She's priced cheap enough to be affordable but high enough to assure a good home, which is what we are after for this girl.

If interested call (217) 597-1310, or e-mail ( sale-wfbdv-2593693592@craigslist.org ) we will give you a quick response."

I would definitely not be trying to sell her with those pictures. If she looks better tell the owner to get new pictures.

I agree with Wickednag, if she has gained and has better pictures it would definitely help.

I always have my eyes open for projects but in that condition I'd be very leery especially with winter fast approaching.

If she does go to auction, from what I've been hearing Veedersburg is bringing the best prices of those in the area but in this market that may not mean much unfortunately. I have a friend who picked up a Rooster daughter a few weeks back for $250 at auction.

That's what I told her; but she wanted me to post those pictures "for now" and she's taking new ones today. A woman was supposed to go look at her, but was a no-show.

I'll post the new pictures tonight as soon as she gets them to me.

I look forward to seeing recent photos of her. How tall is she?
    09-15-2011, 11:02 PM
I want to say she's 15-15.2 HH. I haven't been there to make a personal measurement since I got my weigh tape.

Checked in, and no new pictures yet... I'm going to drop a call with the owner and see if she has them. More will be posted after I place the call! (: Hoping they don't take her to the auction (would have bought her myself but can't afford 2 mouths at the moment). Her pasture mate she originally had went through the ring and was sold to slaughter... Ella is too smart for that demise.

"She's been fed free-choice and gained about 250-300 pounds. She has Thoroughbred on the bottom side. She's a little beat up (on the bottom of the herd)."

If you'd like to see her the owner is willing to keep her past Saturday, but if not she's going to Veedersburg. She's asking $350, but will take $300. Pictures coming up! If they don't get them to me tonight, I'll take them myself tomorrow.

That want to ensure a good home, and thus are charging $300, and yet will run her through for meat if no one shows up to snag her at the asking price. Typical.

"Need room for new horse."

She isn't clicking with them and they're looking to make near/exactly what they need for the new horse. The last horse they simply flipped because he was "dim" and they didn't have use for him. Where he was sold to they didn't know until they saw him loaded into the truck.

Friend of mine picked up dead-broke, registered 4-year-old at auction for $150. "Typical."

In addition, the way they're selling their horse shouldn't be of any concern to anyone except for [serious] potential buyers and the sellers. Nothing is stopping you from walking away if you don't like their process, or if it doesn't meet the standards. Around here, expensively bred/showing horses aren't common, and with winter around the corner they priced her to sell to make room for the new horse (and help cover the purchase), but will take her to auction if they must.

Regardless, I made this topic as a favor to a friend to prevent the horse from going to auction and to get a loving home with a HF member, or friend of one.
