Really nice. What a shame the owner is such a jerk. The auction? REally?

She's asking $7500, I highly doubt she actually plans to dump the mare at an auction and get less then 1/4 her asking price.

Sadly, I am moving out of town unexpectedly and have no choice but to sell her. We are going to the VA Hunter and Sport Horse auction at Frying Pan on June 26, where she will likely find a nice show home, not an auction where the horses are sold to be slaughtered or for dirt cheap. Horses are sold for more than her asking price at that particular sale ALL THE TIME, we have bought many nice horses there. I have had a few offers below my asking price, I would consider all offers, and if I can't find her a nice home at the auction, I will no sale her and let her go to one of these lesser offers for much less than I spent just so that she will be guaranteed a nice home. I do love this mare, I just have no other choice.

Thanks for posting, I really do want to find her a good home, she is a lovely horse and will make a GREAT show horse.
Her video was just taken yesterday and is available at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-ZU5vPjc_Q

PLEASE CALL ME IF YOU ARE INTERESTED! My number is on the Craig's List ad. You can also find her on equine.com, and in the equiery.

Maybe you should specify that in your ad? The way it reads now sure seems like just another CL sales pitch using the big, bad auction threat.

Hope the economy has recovered since the spring sale in VA, the average mare went for $1800, high selling mare was $7600 (a TB), the only things that sold for more than that was ONE Hanoverian gelding who went for $27K. Probably with actual show miles. Average price overall was $2500. Nice big papered warmbloods going for $600-1500.... lots of no sales with ridiculously low top bids....

I think also the ad placement on Craig's List is what led people to believe that the horse was going to a known-for-slaughter auction. It's cheap advertising that generally draws (at least in this area) the lowest of the low-end buyers. Before anyone starts protesting: at the request of the seller (I'm a realtor, remember) I put an ad on Craig's List for a small horse farm. The only responses were from whackos, bottom-of-the-bottom fishers, and porn & cheap Viagra sites that just used the email address...
