I agree totally. I think JDI is being generous with $500-$1500.

I guess I could always put her up as $1500 and see what kind of offers I get on her..

The only problem you will have with posting that type price is the nuts you will get picking on you, especially if you list on something like Craigs List. You need to start at a reasonable price that will make people look at the ad. If you list for $1500 the minute I see the word "green" I don't read any farther. Then you keep listing and relisting at lower prices and soon people start to wonder just what is wrong with this animal.

For a $1500 price that animal had better be a "dead broke horse". Just my opinion.

A woman can NEVER have too many horses.....

I was just looking through some horsie search engines, and there are registered paint yearlings going for $800 in my area. I don't think asking $1500 for a broke 5 yr old is too much, in my area at least.

I completely agree. Generally people who look on Craigs List are looking for deals as it is. Serious buyers who are looking to drop alot of money on a good horse usually don't go to Craigs List.

I know if I was looking to buy a horse and I was on Craigs List, as soon as I saw the word "green" and the price I wouldnt think twice about closing that add and moving onto the next one. You have to take what you can get these days, and 1500 IMO is way too much for that horse.

Sorry - you are comparing apples to oranges. There is a difference between a nicely bred, registered horse and a mixed breed, green broke, grade horse. You are better off to stick to under $1,000.
