Well, I'll tell ya'll about two of them because I love 'em.

First, I bought Callie.
I bought her when she was 2 months old, she came to me when she was 8 months old.
She lived in South Dakota and I live in Virginia. Sight unseen (yes, I know it was a bad idea. Couldn't resist her adorable face though).
$750 + $600 transport
Bay tobiano Shire x Paint filly. I absolutely adored her. I raised her and started to train her with minimal help from others. I gave her to my uncle when she was 3 1/2 years old. She was my baby but she was developing poor conformation that would never stand up to show jumping so my uncle will be using her as a trail horse. She turned out to be so great for me and truly came a long way but she's been a bit of a hassle for my uncle

So after giving her to my uncle I was leisurely searching for another horse.

Then I came across Roswitha.

6 year old Oldenburg mare
16.1ish hands
Dapple bay :) mmm dapples
She's in jumping training and is doing marvelously she's a lovebug but she does occasionally test me.

Pictures coming later

And info about the horse...age, discipline, training, breed, etc. post pics of you want :)
I bought Red last year for $3,500. Honestly looking back, he was a very over-priced green 6-year-old. But I kinda knew the people I was buying him from. When I looked at him, he was over an hour and a half from my parent's place. But they brought him most of the way when I bought him so I only had to drive 15 minutes to pick him up.

He worth well over $3,500 now....... But I'd never sell him anyway.

At the local level, he's placed or won in halter, western pleasure, reining, horsemanship, western riding, competitive trail, ranch horse competition, and more. Not too bad for only a year and a half of work on him. And he's progressing well in his barrels and poles and gaming events.

He's bred Texas High Dasher and Jet Deck on his top side, and Boston Mac / Paprika Pine on his dam side.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

2 weeks ago bought this mare at a kill sale where they actually bring them thru and weight them. Then they sell them by the pound. She is a very well bred Missouri Fox Trotter bred to a very good stallion. Paid 36 cents a pound for her. Brought her home, wormed, vaccinated and feet trimmed, she is doing well.
