Well, I talked to the woman today--as a strange turn of events she contacted me about Ice. We talked, and the mare belongs to a 16 year old who used to do fun wp with her, then rode English a few times, and got hooked. shes looking for a low level jumper, which Ice MIGHT be able to do. She is swaybacked, but a lot of it is from being a fat and happy pasture puff for awhile while she healed from her fetlock, pastern, hock, whatever so with some topline work it probably wouldn't be as bad. If the girl is interested in seeing Ice, I will go see Onyx and we'll consider doing a straight trade.

Of course before anything, I'd want to have the girls x rays be evaluated by a vet (not theirs) and they'll probably have a work up done on Ice as well. And on top of it all, if I don't like these people, I have no problem telling them where they can stick it....or I just might talk to them about a lease? Who knows.

Eh, I am not impressed with her.

However that is cool that you can work that much board off! I wish I could do that.

It's great that your board is that low! I'm jealous!

I think you could find a much better horse though, and for much cheaper.

After reading that I dont think they know what they're talking about. Her front right pastern looks funny as well.
I was thinking the same thing.... lol

I soooo could! There are just tons of babies in Florida for sale for practically nothing. Hwever, I definitely don't have the time or the experience to make a baby what I want. And everything else is so expensive! Even a basic trail horse is at least 1k.

My friend lives near Lakeland. She is looking for a horse as well. She asked me to keep an eye out for one and of course I turned to craigslist (lol). She doesn't have a budget so....

How about this guy?

Quarter Horse For Sale, Florida, Polk City
I think this is the same bay gelding lol.....no price listed, and that video just does not make him look like a "buy me" kinda horse. His trot is cute but his canter looks like a disaster waiting to happen.

I like the look of this girl, even though I think she looks a little round.

That guy looks alright, but he also sounds to me like he'd be a NIGHTMARE if he isn't worked all of the time, which is what Ice does right now....

For an 18 year old, he looks GOOD! And I do love my TBs.

Ice is worth more than that mare. You can get much better.

Oh trust me, I know it, the problem is getting other people to believe it. Stall aggression, no formal training, unsocialized, doesn't take a bit, doesn't like to be groomed.....the list goes on. The only reason I bought him for what I did was because I saw potential.

I did a "sire search" for his sire the other night on some classefieds site. TB's with his lines were selling for 5-6k as sport horses.
