    How much is your horse worth? It sounds like if you do a trade, you will only get $400 cash for her. I personally wouldn't do it. If you need the money get out of her what you can. Adding another horses (even if small) would not be smart if you are getting rid of one for money.

    Mini stallions and horses (if not good bloodlines) don't really sell for that much. Just be careful. But, it is totally up to you.

    Okay, so maybe I'm completely off my rocker here, but I don't see anything wrong with his front legs. That "bump" is just his feltlock joint, it looks distorted because you're looking down on it at an angel.
    He's a little cow hocked, but he's going to be a gelding, so what? I actually perfer my horses to be somewhat cow hocked. I like movement in the rear end.

    As far as I'm concerned he's got two problems:

    1 - He's got some big ass nuts he needs to lose and

    2 - He needs to go on a serious diet.

    Other than that, he looks fine to me!

    I'd say I disagree with this, but perhaps it's just the geographic area.
    Here, if you've got a broke Mini, it'll sell for twice as fast and for double the price that a full sized horse will.
    Don't ask me, I don't get it either but... That's how it is here!

    In my area horses ARE NOT bringing anything. My old barrel horse, who was only 15 years old and had seen it all. Registered mare. She had barrel raced, done a lot of "rodeo" events, been on more trail rides then most of the people in my area put together, rode up beside a train and had shot guns shot off her back... Sounds great huh? He was offered $350 for her and no one has offered more. So I don't think I will get any more for my mare she is unregistered, back yard horse. She only has one "gear" and that is slow. Never had any formal training just a trail horse. So to get $400 and the mini I think I would be doing good.. Because like wsarabians said the Mini's are bringing more then horses at the moment.

    And WSArabians.. I agree with what's wrong with him haha.. And if I get him the nuts will be the FIRST thing to go..lol

    Thanks so much everyone. The guy is bring him to me Sat. So I can see him again and so he can ride Rain.. Like I said before if the family and her don't "click" I won't trade. I want her to have a good home :) And I know the mini would have a good home with me and Arrow.

    And don't yall think Arrow should have a buddy? So this would be better in the long run right? Even if I decide not to do anything with the new mini Arrow would still have a companion. Rain and Arrow are the only horses I have so once she is sold he will be alone unless I trade.

    I agree that his leg would worry me, other then that once he's gelded and you get alittle weight off him, he's going to be a really cute gelding!

    Personally the leg is the only thing that bothers me, if not for that I'd definitely say go for it! Your other mini will probably appriciate the companion and if it doesn't work out you can put him up for sale! It will cost you alot less to feed him while you wait for a buyer.
