He's a lovely looking horse, but on what are you basing a $20,000 price tag?

As far as the photos go, you need much better ones than just you plodding around on him wearing flip flops.

For that price, I'd expect professional shots of him in the show ring. Blue ribbon photos would also help your case, as would them being from a recognized A-rated show and not some open, nonrated one.

Just being Hanoverian doesn't make him a $20,000 horse. He needs to have earned that price tag.

Yea no offence but around here you can get a good looking show horse, with a video and with professional pictures on there ad for 2000.00 Along with the scores your claiming he has (not saying your lying in any way)
He also looks older to me, maybe try to get some more fat/muscle on him
I love his legs and color though. <3
I don't know anything about the florida market

I don't understand why he is advertised for $20k when you say that you will euth him in a few weeks if he doesn't sell. How about making him more affordable to more people instead?

He is 13 yrs old, 17.1 hands, has beautiful confirmation (sire is Weltmeyer) does hunter and lower level dressage, trails and English pleasure. Not a jumper. Has the sweetest temperament and amazing personality - very quiet, no vices. Located in Delray Beach, Florida. If anyone knows of someone who might be interested in leasing or buying Westin, please let me know!

Thanks so much,

Brittany
You say not a jumper but your ad says has won many blue ribbons in jumping. I think this is a phoney post. Who puts a 20K price tag on a horse that may be euthanized? I would be selling him very cheaply if that was the case. If he has that many blue ribbons where are decent photo's from his show career? The ones you have in your ad look nothing like he would even go close to the price tag.

I lived in fort Lauderdale, and I know Delray may be money oriented but this horse wouldnt go for moer than $5k in your area. He is very poorly muscled in the hindend and just looks a little wonky to me, but it may just be because he's so tall.

What I'm not sure about is... you said if you don't seel him, you fear he may need to be euthed? So you'd rather kill your horse if you can't make $20k off him? Otherwise I'd drop my price tag CONSIDERABLY and just find a good home. Even give them horse to someone before i'd euth him. Really?!

I'd like to add to the $20,000 bit. If you want to sell this horse in a matter of weeks, you should really consider lowering the price tag, even before the negotiations. Horses that are priced for $2,000 can sit for up to a year without even getting a bite.
And if you could afford to keep a $20,000 dollar horse, why in the hell are you going to euthanize him!?!

Also, I don't see anything mention in the ad or the pictures that makes your horse worth $20,000 dollars. He is a nice looking horse, but I would expect a $20,000 horse to have won blue ribbons and be a horse people look at and say, "We're going to have to work our butts off if we want to attempt to beat them."

Also, better pictures would really help market him.

Agreed, phoney!

Yea my friend was in this perdictament and what we did was look through horse wanted ads, found a good home, and gave them the horse.
I think finding someone who is going to love him and care for him would put me at ease in college then selling him to somebody who could write a big check

Send him my way. Best friend's hubby is a professional transporter and I can give Weston a great home. I will save his live and your money. You won't have to pay to euthanize him than...

Sorry OP, but I think you're dreaming if you expect to get $20,000 for that horse.

If your only two choices are euthing or selling, then you'd be much better off if you sold him at a low price or even gave him away.
