    It is a bad market right now, but dreamhorse worked well for me, at least as a buyer. When I was selling I listed everywhere.

    Are you buying or selling? I look at Craig's list. Dreamhorse and horseclicks the most.

    Yes, unfortunately it's a terrible market. I'm selling 2 great quality KWPN colts.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Hey Sunshine! I have seen your horses and one thing I would say is that they are not the average horse for sale at the moment. I have no idea what your price range is (and you don't need to share that with me) but I suspect that it is over the $5000 mark. So you want to be sure that you get your ads out to the appropriate market.

    Websites like Craigslist and Equine Now are great for horses up to around that mark, don't get me wrong I'm not being snobby, I have used both those sites to sell horses. However, most people looking for horses over that $5000 range probably don't use those websites as much. Not a be all and end all I am sure there are exceptions so don't everyone jump down my throat.

    Dreamhorse is a good one and has a variety of horses but the one that I thought of for you is actually this one:

    Check it out, see what you think.

    I agree with Sarah. The CL and EquineNow ads are equal to shopping at Walmart.

    While there's nothing wrong with either site, if you're trying to sell high end horses, you need to attract the folks who can spend the money. Those sites do not. They attract those on a budget, or folks who are looking for a bargain.

    I recommend your breed's website. They usually have classifieds, and that's where a serious, high end buyer will look first.

    Thanks sarahver and speed racer - I agree with you both on that. I've got them both on WFS but with no luck =(

    I haven't posted them on the KWPN website yet, but that's a good idea. Guess I forgot about that one! I can't say I've ever tried dreamhorse but might be worth a shot. I'd like to find them competitive homes before these next 3 babies drop!

    That's too bad! You know, horses like yours probably take a little longer to sell also since people are really making a significant investment and will mull over their choices for much longer. The up side is that when your horses eventually sell you can be pretty sure they are going to a good home that will take very good care of them. The down side is that it probably takes months to a year to sell.

    Dreamhorse might be worth a try only because it reaches a larger audience of potential buyers.

    Good luck!

    Thanks! Yes sometimes they certainly do take quite a bit longer to sell, and if I drop their prices anymore people tend to think there is something wrong with them. It's a vicious circle sometimes! People just aren't buying youngsters it seems with this market, but hopefully the coming 3 year old will sell soon since he's of starting age now.
