I've been asked if I would sell one of our mares. I'm not sure what I should ask for her. I've previously told people that I want $350 for her or $500 if I put time in with her to get her a little rideable.
Here's her background. We got her in February as a rescue, so we really don't know much about her. She was guessed to be around 9 years old. I have saddled he and rode her around our place a few times and once out on the road. She has been a hard to catch horse but once caught, she behaves very well. She is a little jumpy or sensitive. She does ok having her feet trimmed. I haven't tried loading her except the when we got her. She didnt load well then but that was expected since they were loaded into a semi trailer to get there and it was dark by the end.
I'm not in a hurry to sell her and I'm not looking to make money with her. With care and feed costs since February, that has easily surpassed $350. Also, I think to work with her to get her rideable, $150 is reasonable. People that have asked us think that since we got her for free, we should basically give her away.
Here are some pics of her:
When we first got her:
It's hard to tell by the pic but she is underweight. You could easily feel her ribs and her spine stuck out on her back.
Here's one of her hooves when we got her:

So, what you ask for her? BTW, we are in eastern ND, USA. Posted via Mobile Device
