Sale horse: What would you price her at?
This mare is priced at 10,000 everyone at the barn where shes been at for the last 4 years or so thinks it WAY to high. Her grand sire is pik solo, but come on... heres her info.

Dreamhorse ad Horse ID: 1353481 - Victoria

The website
Sale Horses
Shes the black mare down near the bottom. Oh and all the other horses on there who are priced low or what they should be have not been sold, or has had little responce.

Ive also never seen her ride 1st level with this horse, the mare also has a sleeping disorder where she needs daily turnout because if she doesnt get turnout she will sleep in her stall and fall. So she falls in her turnout area... They have a name for it but I dont know what its called. Also whats not mentioned in the ad is she looks for reasons to spook! Im just saying if your paying the money Id want to know everything!

Anyways... What would you price her at?

Is that sleeping thing treatable/cureable at all? I like her trot (from the picture) but the price that came to mind was like 4500

No, I dont think it is. They just have to deal with it. I feel bad for the horse because she will always have a banged up eye, a huge chunk of skin scrapped off on the top of the same eye all the time.

Then Kelly the owner gets made at us at the barn. like its our fault. One time I was riding my mare and she asked in a very rude/snoty way if foxy had an episode with her t/o blanket because one of the straps was broken. She asked me like I watch her horse 24/7 and I should know.

uhhh 18 yr olds with loaded parents, what are you going to do.

I like foxy, shes very pritty and has nice movement. But its nothing special. I just wanted to know what you guys think.

Don't want to offend here, but does the owner know you posted her here for critique?

With the sleeping disorder (Narcolepsy?) she's not worth much more then 2,000, to me. Especially if it's hereditary. Then even less.
She's moving downhill in the photos, and the American warmblood society isn't anything special unless the horse actually wins something. This looks like a classic case of 'I have a warmblood so she's worth 10 grand.' Problem is, most warmblood breeders don't really care about the AWR, so... they're not usually priced very high!

travlingypsy 02-25-2009 08:14 PM

I dont think its narcolepsy because when shes being worked she doesnt just pass out and fall down. Its when shes been sleeping a while, you will see her head start to get lower and lower and then boom shes down. Then she wakes her self and gets up. Unless their are different typses of Narcolepsy...
What is AWR...?
The funny thing is when I first met the pair she told me Foxy was bred to be a trail horse. She is a pritty good trail horse tho you would think if thats what your horse was bred to do and most of its training is in you would want to advertise that.

-Kitten, Kelly wouldnt mind.

Teehee. 'BOOM!' must be very silly to watch. ;)
And, American Warmblood Registry. :)

Oh duh...

Its not really funny lol I dunno its funnier when they fall awake rather then asleep, you know.

Ah, OK. I know some owners go nuts if one critique their horse without permission.

As for critique she looks nice, but with that disorder thing I don't think she worse much. I personally wouldn't get her even for $1000. Way too many troubles.

She looks nice, and without the disorder she may be up there, probable not 10,000 though...but with the disorder i wouldn't even pay 2,000 because you never know when or how badly she could get injured.
