She looks beautiful, as do you :) I am not sure about you on her because I have not seen that picture :P Nor am I good with confirmation.

I would think 20k is a little steep. She looks like your average western horse to me. What makes her so much? Though she does seem to have some feathering, so perhaps shes some fancy cross breed? I wouldn't spend 20k on a horse unless I was doing some high level competitions with them and needed a super quality horse (confirmation + bloodlines)... even then it seems a lot.

I believe she's a Friesian cross, CD. That of course makes her a magickal butterfly farter, which means her price is going to be high.

I don't agree with $20,000 for a crossbred, but hey, more power to the owner if he can find a sucker to pay it.

I was thinking Arabian x Friesian but the head just doesn't seem to fit. I would of thought it would have a more dished head if it had arabian in it. Who knows!

It seems like the trend nowadays is "Its a sport horse! Raise that price!"

Heh, I have to agree, tho I love her dearly, 20k is a bit much. Her other half is Missouri Fox Trotter. She's not gaited, but she has been pro-trained out in Lexington somewhere, not to sure the details on it. I think her owner may have a few stars in her eyes about her monetary worth. But her sentimental worth is really high, as she's out of her favorite mare.

Sounds like she doesn't really want to sell, so has put an outrageous price on the mare.

I had someone who wanted to buy my heart horse. I told them if they came up with a million dollars, I might let him go. Funny, he stayed with me....

I feel bad to see how hard I was hauling on Mac's mouth. I had never done barrel racing before and wasn't sure if Mac (who's had lots of experience with it) was going to stop at the finish line or keep going out the gate into the next arena. I am so NOT a barrel racer. Give me dressage, thank you.
