    Oh my! I'd take him home in a heartbeat if I could! Whoever buys that boy is lucky! I'd keep him if I were you! He's just too lovable!

    Green Broke
    I'm in Canada right along with you, and in Manitoba so similar price point as far as equine economy goes. Unfortunately, as darling and rare as Stewie is, he probably wouldn't fetch more then a couple hundred over here. Shay-la just sold a 2 year old registerable Appaloosa colt for $500. I know a few APHA breeders selling registerable weanling stock for about $400. The market sucks for youngsters right now - his price would increase 10x if you got him to 2-3 years old and got him greenbroke. Unfortunately, hard to determine what the economy will do. Also consider, however, that marketing is EVERYTHING - Shay-la sold a 3 year old greenbroke mongrol pony for $2500 a few years ago because she managed to convince some people she WAS worth that much when she was worth MAYBE $1,000 at the time. Granted, she was a phenomenal trail horse and the family loves her, but Shay-la has consistently sold horses for significantly more then they're worth in the past just from convincing people they NEED this horse.

    That being said, I think you should keep him.

    LOL, that's the trouble, I look at Stewie through Rose colored glasses, he IS just a grade colt, albeit a cute one, but I seriously have no idea what he is going to grow into.

    If he has the temperament that build obviously leads him to be a great weight carrying trail horse.

    BUT, I still wonder if he is going to have 'something' about him that may make him able to compete successfully in some discipline or other, although quite what thick legged big guys with short thick necks are good at I'm not so sure

    You need to be very careful when you post about a horse for sale, especially when it involves you-you never know who may be reading this
