Sorry, I should have made that part clear. She has several horses (five children) and is contemplating downsizing. This pony is actually one that she wants to keep. She still has two children that are leadline and walk trot age. All of her ponies are really nice and show worthy. This particular one was sold as a fifteen year old and turned out to be much older (on a routine vet check). It's the pony I would like to buy.
She hasn't listed him and probably won't. I wanted to offer her a price, but one that was fair for both of us. No doubt she'll try to sell me one of the other ponies. They are quality but much more expensive. I know the welsh is probably 8K but it's good enough to go to an A show. It's also spunkier than I'm looking for.
Thanks for the comments. I think I'll offer her somewhere between 5 and 800....
