    I have ridden him, coolest horse I have ever sat on. Almost bought him paying big$ just because he truly is special. Passed because he had surgery for a large melanoma as a 3 year...

    Wow, I didn't realize this was an issue. Our dogs are out in the backyard all day, every day. We live in suburban SF Bay Area, have a yard with 7' fences, a covered patio, dog house, dog beds. They...

    Really? Wow. That's crazy. I just might never buy a horse again.

    Good to know. He is a gray purebred connemara. His surgery is scheduled at Davis.
  5. Poll: Thanks, however I did not buy him, or go forward...

    Thanks, however I did not buy him, or go forward with a vetting. He has surgery scheduled, I am sure his owner is doing what her vets say is best. It's not "internal" but well hidden at the opening...
  6. Poll: "Could" means the horse could have surgery and be...

    "Could" means the horse could have surgery and be fine into old age, or could have the issue flare up within a few years and it could kill him. The actual issue is really irrelevant, as the question...
  7. Poll: FYI, I am NOT talking about a behavioral "health...

    FYI, I am NOT talking about a behavioral "health issue". I am talking about true health issues that will impact insurance and could make the horse unridable, unsaleable or even result in a shortened...
  8. Poll: When should a seller disclose a known major health issue?

    You call a seller and decide to go see a horse, then start the process of test rides, discussing terms, etc. Seller is well aware of a major health issue the horse has that could effect not only...

    Inexpensive and they start a dozen horses right every year. Bonus that the horses can live in pasture and are hacked out every day. Oh, and did I mention close to you and cheap!?...

    Sorry I have disappeared for a while, and I just saw your PM from moths ago. Sorry about what you are going through. What area did you say you live in again? I know all about the cost here in the Bay...

    MysticOakRanch won't defend her breeding program outright, but some of the loveliest horses I know of are horses (Friesian crosses) that she has bred. I have never been a fan of Friesians, but those...

    You know at this point one could successfully argue that ANYONE breeding dogs is irresponsible, and that ANYONE that gets a dog from anywhere but the pound is doing the wrong thing. With the number...

    I bought a barely broke Connemara mare that was too small for me. I sold her because of it and regret it 2 years later :(

    I bought a mare that was pretty much perfect on paper (although still a...

    Well my mare was called "sound" by a dozen vets over a period of 3 years. I also had plenty of trainers think she was "fine". I could clearly see she was "weak" on her right hind.

    She was most...

    As always, out of the PMs coming my way all have been over 20k except ONE (which is a half-Arabian, which greatly effects price) and none have been "fancy small warmbloods".

    And the OPs horse is...

    Formerly shopping for exactly that, I have to say this is completely NOT true. I had a hard time finding what I was looking for as a 3 year old, barely started. A 4-6 year old showing with 7-8s at...

    My little Hanoverian mare who was maybe 15 hands and half an inch was constantly praised by top trainers and judges (including intl judges like Jane Weatherwax). The ONLY trainer that ever mentioned...

    This was the biggest one for me, filed under "personality and temperament". As a 40-something year old that commutes into the city for a 50 hour a week job, what I CAN ride and what I can ride given...

    Well clearly you are in the "big" leagues. Out here in the normal world there really are thousands of horses that are average sized.

    I have to disagree, at least in this area. Go to a dressage barn and there are usually plenty of horses that are less than 16hh (by plenty, I mean 10-30% of the horses).

    At any given H/J barn you...
