Equestrian Challenge Day 11

Day 11- Find a horse for sale online that you would want to buy

Lets see, its been so long since I looked for a horse cause I do not need anymore horses (if I keep repeating it, I am hoping I will believe it!) But if I were to get another horse it would either be one of 3 things..1.a sibling to my paint horse Razz.  2.  A team of drafts to drive, preferably Belgians.  or 3.  A young cutting horse to put in training.  So that is what I was looking for for this challenge.

1.  I have never seen a horse by Razz's sire for sale online, so I had no idea where to even look.

2.  Drafts are also hard to find online, I generally go to a sale at the beginning of May each year that is all about drafts and driving, so if I were to buy a team, it would probly be at their sale.

3.  So for this challenge I am going to pick a couple 2 year old cutters.  Since the NCHA Futurity was last week, I will pick from there, cause that is where so many go through.  And since the sale is actually over these horses are not for sale anymore, but I can provide a price they sold for and will be kinda fun to see how they are doing in a year or 2.

First is a roan mare (now this was an amazing horse, I almost didn't look at her just cause she is a roan, but I could get over the color for how cool she works as a 2 year old, I can only imagine her as a 3 or 4 year old. She sold for $15000 so kinda out of my price range (I wish!!)

I also like this sorrel colt.  He inst as dramatic in his moves as the mare, but he is so quiet and makes it look so easy that I think he would be awesome.  And his papers say so as well, both his sire and dam are NCHA earnings and have sired foals with earnings so that helps when looking at young stock.  He sold for Oh my I just looked!  Wow, can I pick em or what??? $75, 000!!!! Holy crap, maybe the mare was in my price range after all.

OK now that I just about had a heart attack for picking that expensive of a horse, I guess I better go out and get a job, lol I think I need it for my next new horse!
