My pasture is just terrible and is being overgrazed (5 acre pasture with 4 horses, and two donkeys in it!!!) I do supplement with round bales of coastal hay, but good hay is outrageous and I refuse to buy less that great quality hay, so I've decided that its time to let them go.
I have a broodmare who is Texas Acredited (which means that if you breed her to another TA horse, and the foal places at a race, you get an extra jackpot, since it was born and raised in Texas). She would also throw an unbelievable barrel horse. She has Dash for Cash, Top Moon, Triple Chick all on her papers, and is also a Streakin Six granddaughter! She also has Cherry Lake, who is a hall of fame TB broodmare on her papers! She does have a scar on her right front knee (I don't know what its from, but my farrier thought that she probably did it before her training began because she was never tattoed) , so her knee isn't flat, but she is sound on it and it will never be a problem other than I don't think she is rideable (spelling?). She is a really sweet mare, but is the boss at feeding time. I'm asking $1500 for her, although I will discount if you are buying more than one and she's going to a great home. Here is a pic:
The next horse I have for sale is a really cute 5 y/o grade QH mare. She was really thin when I got her and had a foal on her as well. I sold the foal to a good home, and now I have to find a home for Momma. She is Greenbroke to ride, no buck/bite/rear/kick but like I said, she is green and needs some miles. I started her and she is doing great. She has been ridden 9 times over the last month and a half just lightly. (Walk/Trot no loping). She will go with light pressure and stops pretty well, you just set her hands and she'll stop (she sometimes runs through the bit, but that's natural at the time. She will also back from the same hand position as you stop her in. Once she is completely stopped, you just ask her to go, cluck, and she backs nicely. She doesn't get mad about not understanding something and is really sweet natured, although she is hard to catch, since I haven't spent any bonding time with her.
She was running in a pasture with a buckskin stud, who was really great looking, although I was hoping she wasn't bred. I had her vet checked this July and she was about 3 1/2 to 4 months along, which is why she doesn't have a lot of hard work to do. I'm asking $500 to the right home. She would be great as a teenagers trail horse, because it doesn't take much to get her to do what you ask, and she is still green. She has picked up a lot of her weight, but still has probably another 50-100lbs to pick up before she looks great. Here is a pick of her:
And lastly, I have my baby girl up for sale, to a special home. She was born and raised with me and I was hoping to keep her, but have found that I'm not going to be able to spend a lot of time with her, and she really just loves people, so I feel bad. She gives kisses, lunges, flexes, puts her head between her front legs, saddles, trims and clips well (shes still a little funky about her ears, but my clippers broke recently, so have to wait a while to continue that, although she is pretty tolerable about it if you are patient)... You can jump at her (haven't gotten on her, but jumped on her sides and butt. I have put my 3 y/o nephew on her and lead him around, she trailers well, ponies off other horses at all gaits, etc. I was going to take her next year and do rail classes, but to be honest, I doubt I could afford it, especially since I have my filly I want to rein on. If you live in Texas, you can bring her back next year and I will break her for free, since she's my baby. Im asking $1000 for her, but since they really need to go, I will take offers on all and will go a package discount. Here is a pic when she was little, don't have any recent that are pretty good shots and can't get any for a while until I find my camera (if I find it!):
This is her at 12 hours old:
Six days old:
11 days old:
8 weeks old:
And 7-8months old.
