I had someone offer to buy my colt, how much..?
I had someone stop by my house yesterday. They asked if I would sell him. I'm not sure how much to ask for him though. He's about to be a year old, no papers. His mom had then but the previous owner never got them to us. He's a red dun, and has nice comfo, great temperment, he's super fast and is going to make a.great horse one day...what should I ask for him? If I sell him, i'll be getting another riding horse. He's my baby but I really want a riding horse... I just dont

Sorry if I rambled. My question is, how much should I ask for him? Considering he's my baby, and I need enough money to buy another riding horse.

A grade, untrained yearling? You would be very lucky to get $500.

I wouldnt expect more then $300. You can go to a auction and get unregistered horses for less then that.

Remember that you weren't selling, they were buying. Let them make an offer before you give a price, and then if the number sounds good to you you say well, I guess I could let him go for that.

I have decided to keep him, but thanks for your opinions guys. I just can't let him go unless I have too, which I don't
