how much would you be willing to pay for tara?

right if i could keep this mare i would but with a tb and a 2 yr old tbx youngster and a nevrous partner i can not keep her. i'm doing home checkes i'm happy to loan to buy in local area as i would like to keep her to work her a little. if not sold that will be where she stays. firstly her info
name; tara (currently cant remember her show name)
breed; eriskay, she is classified as a grade b and is of a very rare breed. Eriskay Pony Society - The Eriskay Pony
age; 15 years old years now.
gender; a mare
her ridden work needs alot of work. she has been backed but has never hacked out alone. in company needs a slower friend as she's green and lack confidence. only been ridden about 10 times in last 18 months. was turned away from 7 yrs until 13 years. never done jumping etc but is a fast wee mare and when you get her going she does enjoy it.
vices; because she was unhandled and has had a nasty accident with a grid on front of stable she can be head shy. she can be strong to lead alone. she in her stable can food guard.
she needs time spent on her as you can see but her breeding and guts means she has the real WOW factor, in summer she is unbeatable in the mountian and moorland classes. lives on air and would more than happerly live outside all year as she living out on the island of lewis, she does rug up but will never need to on the mainland. she's a very honest mare and there are few people she doesnt like. loves her bath time. and is a good calm traveller and easy loader. never had a foal but with her lines would breed nice quaility babies.she's a chunky strong mare who easierly carries 14 stone with no problems (typical of the breed) once you get her trust this mare will do anything. i must admit spending many lunches resting on her eating lunch, (had to her horsey sandwiches with me!!!!) she needs time to settle into a new home and get to know new people but once you get there you have a friend for life.
she's a real project and as you can tell is never a kids pony. needs experenced home where she'l be loved. excuse the mess she wasnt groomed first as i took the pics on a whim. and the fence was being redone at the time.

How tall is she? Sometimes it's hard to sell little guys if they're greenish.

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.
