PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, CONSIDER THESE MARES Bids starting at $150, some of these mares are broke, some registered
I believe all of these mares have NO OVARIES. Essentially this is a $600+ value that you'll probably be able to snatch up for CHEAP. No worries about coming in to heat with the 'mare moodies'. No ovaries, no babies! I bet my life that many of these girls are EXCELLENT mounts or with some training, would be perfect riders.
I myself live on the other side of the country, but if you live on the west coast or around Oregon, please give these mares a chance. I understand that times are hard and many horses are already being shipped to Mexico, but these girls have the added bonus of already being sterilized. If I lived on that side of the country, I would pick a few up as training projects myself.
I just hate the thought of these girls falling into 'the wrong hands'. A lot of them look really lovely. Originally posted on Fugly, figured it wouldn't hurt to also post it here for those who don't read the blog.
Registered horses are noted, I figured this could be somewhat important to those looking to show or who just like having papered horses (sterilized or not). From what I read, all are UTD on worming and shots as well.
