    Question about horse for sale

    Is it OK to post a link to a horse for sale (on equinehits.com) here and ask for opinions on the price?

    I would assume that it would be ok. I have seen lots of people do it. :)

    OK, well here is the ad:
    Quarter Horse Horse for Sale in Wellington, Colorado
    Please keep in mind that she is pregnant (with my mare) in these pictures.

    This is my horse's mother. My husband and I are kicking around the idea of getting a second horse - something for me to ride this summer and for him to ride once my young one is broke and going. This horse has been for sale for going on a year, I believe. When I first saw the ad, it said her price had been reduced from $4,000 to $2,800, and now it is at $2,500.

    I like the mare. She is very laid back and built like a tank. She is not that tall, but STOUT, and that's the kind of build my husband needs because he is also a tank. :) She is green, but very laid back and willing, and I'd feel comfortable with him getting on her once I've put a few miles on her. She's also very sweet, like my mare.

    But I just don't see where she's worth $2,500. The owner mentions that she has Great Pine on her papers. Well, I'm not a reiner. I'm a barrel racer. So Great Pine doesn't mean that much to me. She's green, and she's only had one foal so you couldn't call her a broodmare.

    I dunno, what do you think about the price?

    I think that with this market (though I don't know how it is in your area), she is prices too high. Consider that she is 9 years old with only 5+ rides. I don't even consider that green broke, in my book, that is the equivalent of unbroken but has been messed with. Her confo is good but not outstanding and the same for her papers. If you really like her, I would offer 1000 and they may be willing since she has been for sale for a year and price is negotiable with cash. You can always bicker the price and of course, vet check. :) I wish you luck and I hope that it works out for you.

    $1,000-$1,500 is what I was thinking. I got an email from her this afternoon saying that she had lots of people come look at her but everyone wants her for next to nothing and she would easily be worth $5,000 if she was riding (she can't ride her due to injuries she sustained in a car accident). But my thinking is - she isn't, and I don't want to pay that kind of price tag for potential, especially when I'm not looking for a show horse. I'm looking for a husband horse. She said she was "negotiable within reason." So I guess we shall see!

    All unbroke horses will go for a lot more if they were being ridden.

    She looks like a nice mare, definitely really built like a tank, but I agree the 2500 price tag is too much for a broke, unproved horse. I personally don't care what the horses on her papers have done. Their success, IMO has nothing to do with hers.

    I would offer them what you think she is worth. You would think after a year of being for sale and not selling at 4,000 or 2800 that she'd just take whatever. But to each their own.

    That's what I would think, too. I'm still waiting to hear back from her. I asked her if we paid in cash what her best price would be. Maybe she had to talk it over with her husband. I also need to find out of she has been HERDA tested.

    I've had someone ask what's the best price I'd take on Montana and I too said I'd think it over with my fiance, but I wanted to hear their offer before I said anything.

    Hopefully she'll get back to you soon and you'll know.

    She just got back to me and said $2,250. She asked me if I could live with that and said we both knew she was worth way more. I think I'll pass.

    Obviously if the horse has been for sale that long, the price is not right!
