See..I think as long as I advertise her correctly that she'll be able to fetch somewhere near 10k.
Where I am, the 4h parents will pay top dollar for a horse that their kid can show in 4h and rated/rodeos.
From what I'm seeing in her and what I think she can turn out to be, I'm looking at a competative 4h horse (hunter/jumper and/or games), lesson horse, and have the umph to go to rodeos/rated shows..not to mention a bombproof trail horse that will lead/mingle/follow. I'm hoping she takes to the cows, but that'll just be extra.
I'm looking to get her as a finished hunter/jumper or gamer, and still haverher competative at the one she ends up less suited to.
A little black/white paint gelding ended up starting a bidding war at fair the past 3 years..One or two offered 14k for him. He's a jumping and games horse ridden by a 14yr old that also trail rides. He's definitely not perfect and he has more of an attitude than Alahna from what I've seen.
I think I plan on offering to pay for show fees and ask Donald (the Paint geldings rider) if he wants to show her for me a little after I do some myself. English anyways..he can have hard hands in games and doesn't use his legs. D: Posted via Mobile Device
