    Possible purchase and advice?

    A mare I have been looking at has recently dropped into my price range.


    She is a pretty coming 2yo black QH (they say Appendix, but I think her parents are both registered QH, not Appendix). She has really quite nice lines, her sire is a fairly nice money earner and his foals have done well. She is adorable and well built for the hunter ring.

    She is not registered, though everything is ready, just waiting to be sent in. She is also a bit small for a 2yo. She looks more like a yearling size-wise, so I am not convinced she is going to grow up tall, despite her parents being 16hh and up.

    So my question is this: Is she worth the $600 asking price, if I am going to pay another 500+ to register her, and hope she grows up to be tall enough? She is also very green, so I would be basically starting her from scratch.

    Is she worth it?

    I wouldn't pay $600 for an unregistered 2 year old. But that is just me... IMO she is a grade horse worth $50-$200

    Parents can be registered but if there was ever appendix in the past they will keep appendix papers rather than full papers. I think that can be changes with show points or something - don't remember for sure. But I had an "appendix" filly with papers and her TB blood was 4-5 generations back

    Never know on height - my husband's draft cross measured 14.3 when we started I'm under saddle as a 3 year old and he is now 15.3 hands as an 8 year old. No guarantees though so I'd you really want over 16 hands I would by one that is already there.

    As to the price it depends on your location - some areas that may be a fine price others it may be pricy. Around here if she is a nice horse papers don't seem to mater much but the untrained does. Might want to counter offer 400 instead if you are really interested in her. All they can do is say no.

    If registerable, it should have been done soon after she was born. Then when she is sold the transfer certificate would have to be signed over to the new buyer who then submits this to the registry along with the fees. You would then be issued a new paper with your name on it along with the previous owners and breeder and a full description of the horse. As previously mentioned, without the reg. Paper, her sire and dam could be any two horses, not who the seller claims.
