Foal
is this a good price

I am trying to sell my mare and foal. I bred her back to my stallion in her foal heat. Im asking 4000 for the mare foal and the fact she might be pregnant agian. The stallion is colonel freckels,poco benuo ,red ant, and grey badger 2 bred and the mare is a great granddaughter of colonel freckels. Is this reasonable?

You might ask this on the Sale page. But....what has your horse done? What has the sire done? $4000 is an awful lot of money to spend on a horse and the marked stinks. I'd want to know what your horse has done...other than have babies.

What's your mare's conformation? Is she registered? What is her age? Health, etc.?

Ditto to above poster. Mares and foals are a dime a dozen right now. Colonel freckles is a great line... but its an old line and sounds like its far back on the pedigree.

Let me put something in perspective for you. I recently bought an AMAZINGLY bred 5 year old gelding. Broke as broke can be and been started on the pattern beautifully. He's got the whole nine yards... I spent about half to a quarter of what he would have gone for in a good market.

I would need to know what is so great about the stallion and what is so great about the mare/other offspring.

I agree, not to burst your bubble or anything but getting a good price for a bred (possibly) mare that doesn't have any accomplishments of her own is nearly impossible these days. The only people pulling off selling horses for big bucks are the well established show horse breeding farms that are known to produce winners (and even their broodmares don't bring much, that is the show prospects and winners that bring in the bucks). I was watching a ranch auction on tv the other day that had VERY good lines and bred mares were going for less than $600. Yearlings and weanlings were going for less than $100. And these were all very nice, papered, with smokin conformation going at these prices.

Exactly. Prior to purchasing my gelding I was looking at two 2 year olds. One of which would have made any cow horse enthusiast's jaw drop to the ground and the other was bred very nicely out of the same lines as NFR average winner, Dolly. (barrel racing)
...both were being offered for $800. Good minds, conformation, and the pedigree to back them up.
