Well, knowing the colorado market pretty well, this is going to be a hard call!
The pro's: She has Doc Bar lianeage, and that is close. The top line is pretty sharp! I even see the Skippa family there, which my mare links heavily into. For Mares, they throw fantastic foals.
The Con's: She doesnt have any or much record to her. Next thing you may get picked apart on, as inconsequential as it is, is her weight and muscling.
If you are wanting to pick the price up on her, get some top line weight going on, some conditioning as well, and do some shows with her. She has a great foundation, and you will need to prove that in her records. Right now, the market is somewhat saturated in some pretty good stock through out Colorado. You can pick up fillies of the Olena family for around 1k. But these are also weanlings. The fact yours is at 2, will draw more of a market for buyers as feed v. Cost and time wont be hard on a buyer before break out. You have incurred most of the cost so far, and buyers will look for that. She has the build potential there, blossum it and then advertise her sale. If you get her going in that direction, you can easily ask 2k for her and have a good amount of interest!
Only my opinion.. these are things I look for when I make my purchases, and when I sell, these are things I noticed really push the interest.
