Go to the off-course forum for a huge thread about Finger Lakes horses being offered for very reasonable prices now. There are many, many horses there who are awesome event prospects.

Check out The Rock Can Roll; Carr Ride; Chequer Cat (pm me about him: awesome, awesome horse); many, many more are available and need homes quickly.

Finger Lakes horses have gone on to greatness and it's anybody's guess who the next one will be, even if the greatness is in your heart in your backyard!
Many of these horses have gone on to have successful h/j and eventing careers.

There are tons of awesome horses! I wish I could support another right now, maybe next year (if my husband doesnt run out of the house screaming haha)

I think I love The Rock Can Roll:

Plus - hes got a lot of lines that people like for sport horses
Pedigree (http://www.pedigreequery.com/the+rock+can+roll)

And there are a couple freebies, I actually know the groom of these horses

Unlimited Warranty (http://fltrainerlist.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=1090)
Pedigree (http://www.pedigreequery.com/unlimited+warranty2)

I like him a lot too:

I too love The Rock Can Roll. He looks like he'd be a nice balanced ride.

Wow - Unlimited Warranty is a cutie and I LOVE Blushing Groom lines but I just brought one home from Suffolk last week and am at my limit.

What a sweet face. :)

Bet this girl (Lagioa Ditutti) (http://fltrainerlist.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=1127) would be way flashy at show weight!

These threads kill me... Temptation, temptation... my resistance is slowly eroding....

A few questions for you in the know: how difficult/expensive is it to bring one of these into Canada -- transport costs aside, are there many hassles associated with "cross-border" shopping? How hard is it to get a good PPE if you are buying sight unseen? I have looked at LongRun, but it seems that they have fewer horses with a prospect at a new sport career... am I missing something?

sorry for the dumb questions -- please feel free to PM me or direct me to another thread that addresses these questions!

I called about Rock and Roll Roan yesterday, to the number listed and haven't heard from them. Does anyone know if he has already been purchased? Should I go ahead and give the number another call?

I hope someone with more knowledge answers you but it isn't too hard to cross into Canada from the US. You just need specific health papers. Setting up a good PPE from afar isn't too tough either...especially if you know what sort of questions to ask the vet. Make sure you talk with the vet before they see the horse and understand what you want them to look over (and that you are buying basically sight unseen). I bet if you contact some of the volunteers at CANTER they can help you through it.

I am vetting Rock and Roll Roan as soon as he is finished racing :) He might race this saturday, so I have to wait until then, but barring any terrible news from the vet, I will be shipping him to MD :)

I am trying not to jinx anything, but will definitely let everyone know whether he comes home with me or not!

P.S. There's a huge thread on Off Course discussing all these lovely ponies, in case you wanted some more inspiration/temptation/enabling :)

i'm really wanting one that's only 15.1. is that total resale suicide? he's so cute and well bred and needs a home and there's already someone who's getting another shipped this way...all i'd have to do is have him thrown on the trailer...

help!

yes that is resale suicide....so get him for yourself to keep!

just kidding...but it will be harder to resell him ...he will have to be that much more special. But there are buyers and kids out there who want a smaller mount. I wouldn't be getting him though thinking you will have an easy re-sale project on your hands....and plan for as if you will have him for life and that you are doing this not for a sale but for the fun a bringing on a project and giving a horse another chance. If he turns out like Mr. Big....icing on the cake.

I want Jo Cosmo...He reminds me of my old boy same age that I got him at same height with those kind sweet eyes. He even has the same name as my little Jack Russell Cosmo that got killed last year and he has a nice pedigree. If he was closer to me I would get him in a minute. I am still going back and forth on how much it would be to ship him to WA but I think my husband would go crazy....

Much prefer this one too (over the other grey filly)

The first one may be flashy now, but she'll be white like all grey horses will...and will "lose" all that chrome. She is only 15 hands and has terrible TINY feet. Hmmm...maybe someone who's breeding pony hunters may want her. I haven't seen too many 15 hand TBs!

This other grey is bigger with better feet (sorry, I'm a foot person, especially when it comes to those terrible TB feet! :)

Fargaloo, Up at 5 is taking Silent Reflection to her new home with her in Canada. She has spoken with the trainer and he is being very helpful in getting the appropriate paperwork in order for transport. She has informed me that the horse need papers for "permanent import" to Canada, signed by a federal veterinarian.

If you choose one of Finger Lakes Finest beasties, maybe you can hook up with shipping. Please e-mail me at foundationmare@yahoo.com if you would like more information or shameless enabling!

Meant to mention, Spyglass Eventing, that I'm looking at Equibase for the entries on Saturday to see if Rock and Roll Roan's race was used so I could inform you if he will, indeed, be racing on Saturday. I don't know if the racing office hasn't closed entries yet (it's the last day of the meet and they are being very, very selective I'm guessing), so can't give you any updates at this point. You can check the overnight entries on the Finger Lakes website.

Rest easy though! He'll be fine and standing in your barn before you know it!

Can't find Chequer Cat on the listings - is there a link?

Hey BEARCAT,

Sorry, Chequer Cat is not on the listings. We've been so busy and I didn't realize that we don't have pics of him. We will get pics on Saturday.

Until then, I can tell you that I work with him everyday. He's a big (at least 16.1, big bodied) sweetheart of a horse. Not a mean bone in his body, lovely, shiny coat, no soundness issues. He's got great manners, is easy to work around and has an engine! When I walked him today, he bowed his neck and proceeded to jig around the shedrow with his usual power walk! Doesn't kick or spook, just wants to GO!

He's make an awesome eventer! Hope to entice you!

His pics will be posted by Saturday night and you will love him. BEARCAT, there's a Colorado contingent leaving from here. e-mail me at foundationmare@yahoo.com if you would like some information about him. Seriously, he's a handsome, sound, sensible horse, would make a GREAT eventer because he's got some get-up-and-go! Lovely boy, very kind and mannered.

Yes, they are at the Finger Lakes track in upstate western New York. Racing ended Dec.5 but horses wil be around for at least a week.

There are several shipments planned both southward and to the west you can link up with.

Go to Off Course for the full thread.
