    vxf111-you do realize that canter doesn't own those horses and it is only a listing service correct? The trainer very well could have told you whatever he wanted but I volunteered with canter and ran...

    I think a lot of it depends if you like to make your own or can ride what someone else has made. I prefer to start horses myself (perhaps why I mostly do ottb's) and I like horses who have raced. I...

    I think xrays and vettings are always open to interpretation. I have had horses that aren't passed by one vet and easily pass from another. Or some vets who see something on a xray and another vet...

    I like him quite a bit and I like his pedigree. I have had two horses by exploit (bottom lines) and they were brave with lots of scope but they can be a bit hot. I like the way he is put together. He...

    Absolutely!!!! I have rehabbed so many bows and had no issues selling horses with bows that have been rehabbed and horses back into work. I have not found any vets who won't clear them for prelim and...

    As a reseller, I love them. Personally, my least favorite. They always sell very well even if not as nice as their solid color barn mates IMO.

    I like the tb a lot. I think some of the uneven steps are just unsteady in the bridle type of stuff. Great canter and jump and the trot always comes in time.

    A neat one just because I got a cool update. I got a horse from his breeder and he never raced because of a "tendon strain" as a young horse and she just doesn't push her horses. She turned him out...

    It has gotten much better IMO having been involved in Tb resales for a long time. It's rare that I seller a cheaper TB (say $3500) unless it has a minor vet issue where it is sound but not perfect...

    I actually started buying more appendix and draft crosses when the prices of nice tb's got so high. Any good business operates with an idea of what is currently selling well in the current market. I...

    Lord Helpus- I think that is the standard and is pretty fair.

    But..typically if you have another offer they are going to want to vet it too so why would it matter? The first person to confirm they are moving forward to a vetting is the first in line regardless....

    The market is quite strong. I have a very similar program to JBRP. I typically buy and sell 30+ horses a year and most are off the track from very good connections. I am only buying 16+ h, young...

    I sell around 30+ horses and a year and I don't take deposits. I ask people to schedule a vetting within a week and I will in good faith hold the horse for that time. Many of my buyers are long...

    Honestly, just because they aren't doing the marketing doesn't mean they aren't working hard for the commission. Showing horses to clients is really NOT that much fun (coming from someone who sells...

    I think war horses are fantastic. They have seen it all and then some. They tend to have held up to hard work and had brains decent enough for trainers to want to keep them around. Most of them tend...

    As I said above I really love to do the reschooling but I can't keep them in my barn long enough to get much done so that says the market strongly supports those of us who are buying quality Tb's....
