With the horse market being what it is, there are hundreds of cheap horses in my area alone. At our local horse sales, unbroke/green broke horses rarely bring more than $150-$200. I am considering buying another one, because since my mare died 3 months ago Molly has been all alone. I wouldn't mind to get one that needs some training, but I just don't want to get stuck with a crazy one. I would love to get a good deal on a good horse, but I also know that there are a lot of bad horses out there for a cheap price. I got Molly at a horse sale for $250, and she has turned out to be such a great horse. I was very lucky to get her! In a horse auction though, you don't have a lot of time to think about a horse before bidding. How do you know if it is a good horse or if its a bad one someone is just trying to get rid of? I have always heard that certain face/head shapes indicate the temperment of a horse, is that true? Are there any other indications of a horse's attitude that you can look for in the auction ring? What do you look for before buying? Thanks!
