Possible buy.

This is the horse that I am slowly talking my grandmother into getting me for my birthday. Any objections?

I plan to show her in halter, Western Pleasure, English Pleasure.

I didn't notice this til now, but they want cash. I don't know if that's suspicious or not. other than that, the horse looks really nice. I would like to see some updated pictures tho.

They sent me some, I'll upload them onto here.











Also if I were lucky enough to get her, I would definitely get her in show shape.

I just sent the lady an email asking why she has to be paid for in cash.

Does she look a little chunky to you? I can't decide whether or not I think she's chunky.

she does look a little chunky. Do you know if she's been shown since 2006?

She has only been used as a halter horse. She isn't broke. She has only had someone sit on her with a saddle. I would totally train her to show.

Her back seems strange for some reason.. can't put my finger on it though. Might be that her hip is taller than her shoulders, but there's just something about it... might be the hip attachment to the body?
She looks alright.. straight legs as far as I can tell... um, deep chest..Nothing terribly wrong there..

Looks good for the price.
Chances are they're asking for a cash purchase to guarantee they'll be paid on the spot for the horse and not get hooped if someone doesn't pay up. Just like car dealerships will tend to knock off a certain price for a cash deal - they're guaranteed that money that day, not 5 years down the road.
