QH-Good project? Worth it?

I came across this little girl locally. My BO and I are thinking about a project horse. What do you guys think of her for a reining project? I like her......but not sure. $500, 18 mo old. Worth a look? Sorry-this is all I have. Asked for more photos and got a video basically of the sorrel.

Well, the price is good, do you know when the picture was taken? The pasterns look a little long but she could be in a fugly stage. Lots of people downsizing right now. Great time for a bargain.

At that price, I'd go check her out ASAP, assuming you're okay paying for upkeep until she's of riding age and can prove her prospect-worthiness! Her pasterns may be a bit long and her hindquarters look a tad weak, but that could all be the angle of the photo. Her face and color are stunning, and that always helps the overall picture in the ring. Seeing her move in person will tell you a lot more than one scruffy pasture picture, as you well know. Not at all familiar with the top lines, but the bottom is nice!

I bought my horse for a steal, based off some scruffy pasture pics taken at 20 months of age. 7 months later, I'm confident it was the best horse deal I've ever made. But it's been excruciating waiting on him to mature enough to start under saddle work, lol.

I like the bottom side of her pedigree but I've never met a "Dan" horse (Of any variety) who wasn't at least a little bit nutters....The Whiz It will probably make her temperament pretty chill though.

She looks like a nice little filly though.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

We are going to see her tomorrow am.....I have suggested to my friend who is the one looking for a project.....to take #350-400 cash. I am guessing that will take her if she decides she wants her. The kids have apparently been playing soccer in the pen with this filly and another they bought at the same time. The son (probably early teens, from what I can gather) broke out the other filly since she was already 2, and they had no issues at all doing that. They say this filly is even nicer temperment. We will see. So hard to tell what they will look like at this age-they are pretty fugly. I think the photo is pretty recent, but I will try and get more tomorrow if we like her. Costs next to nothing to bring her home and put her out for the winter and let her be a horse.........

Good plan, it's hard for a seller to turn down cash in hand! I'd print a blank AQHA transfer paper to bring along to get that signature; we all know how the story ends when the seller "will send it to you soon."

I have not had a registered QH myself in YEARS, but my friend has and we have already talked about the transfer because I do not think the person in the papers is the current person. That is a MAJOR question I have. Totally different location and I have a feeling they have never transferred her, in which case, it may be a no go, unless they already have the transfer papers from the previous owner and just have not sent them in. We would not pick her up until Monday anyway......because of a reining show this weekend....trailer is there.
