VERY Nice BIG Warmblood on Broker Lot-New videos and info posted!!!
Saw this guys and thought to post it here!
AC4H just listed a bay, very tall warmblood gelding who is quite the looker. Great head, neck and eye on this guy and hes got a great build overall. This is one of those cases that i think sadly relates to my warmblood i found at the auction. They want $800 for him, hoping someone can snatch him up here. He looks young and like a great little project. Looks like he needs his feet done but other than that he appears sound to me.
He is now on page 2 of the broker listings.

there will be more info posted as well as probably a video. they were just posted not long ago and they are still working on uploading more horses. If you have any questions about the horse PLEASE email AC4H. They viewed this horse, watched him go, and could tell you quite a bit about what they saw. From Ac4H's word, the broker's are currently "Cleaning house" and dumping horses on their property so any little bit could help for these horses. theres not much hope after a week of being listed.
Thanks Cloudy! Thats fantastic! I really hope they both grab homes. Like i said; they very rarely have good feet in the pictures because they are obviously not very well looked after most of the time. Most need a good shoe job and their feet looked at and im sure they'll move a lto better.
it would surprise me if a horse came down with something as simple as an abcess and went lame because if it; causing folks to dump that at the auction thinking the horse is dead lame and not worth keeping it anymore. it wouldnt surprise me at this point.
Hoping someone can grab these guys. they look lovely and i can only imagine what theyd look like with some weight/muscle and a nice cleaning.
Really considering taking in the little bay pony at the top of page one. It may be a great way to educate my students about the dangers that lurk for un-wanted un-trained horses by watching this little guy come along and having an actual face that they know to put to the issue, as all the majority of them ever see is my well trained, spoiled and greatly loved lesson horse crew, and the shiny and polished horses at the shows we go to. It looks as though he has a great disposition and in time, training, and some boy related "modifications" may turn out to be great little guy. Thoughts? Kinda nervous about bringing one home that I have never seen, touched, and handled, as I have never done it before... but there is something about this little guy... If I don't snag him I hope somebody really great does.
YAY!!! i have been pushing to get someone to take that bay pony. hes a total ham isnt he??!!! I think he could be very nice with some muscle/TLC! Someone already offered to pay for him; he just needs a place to go! Hes been up there for 2 weeks so his time is running very short.
I think hes a very honest, quiet pony who is going to make someone a great little project. if you have any questions, please conact AC4H as soon as possible. they took his video and his photos and could tell you what they saw. For that price; if i had the time right now (im a full time college student and 9 horses at home), i would snag him in a heartbeat; i even have a stall open but i cant take another right now due to my lack of time.
I think hes going to be a very easy project. best of luck to you trinity; i really hope you grab him and what a great way to get the lesson kids involved!!!!
I also wanted to point out this TB at finger lakes in NY> The track closes on saturday and these horses have absolutely nowhere to go! He has been reduced to $500 but i bet you can get him for better than that. I really really like the look of this guy, really well built with a great head, neck and topline on him. he also has great feet and his legs look great!
He does have an old scar on his right hind from when he was a baby but the trainer said he has been sound on it. He's 4 years old and hes been fine on it this long. Im sure a career that is less demanding than racing would be a lot better for him anyways. He's adorable and i think hed make someone a really really nice project. if this horse does not have a home by sat. who knows what will happen!
I also really liked this guy too. He's a stunningly well built horse with great look legs and solid looking feet. Even though it says he's a cribber, most racehorses devlop this habit from being cooped up in stalls all the time. once he's back in turnout all day im sure the habit will diminish with time. Hes really quite the looker. Asking $750
farmgirl88--just to clarify, not ALL the horses at Finger Lakes are homeless if they aren't sold. Some will go to trainers' farms to winter over, others go to other tracks and will keep running until someone buys them. Some do get sold for shipment to PR, but not all the FL horses are in immediate danger for their lives. They're listed for sale because they aren't really earning their keep any more. It would be great if someone buys them (especially Take Me Flying--seriously, no one has snapped him up for a Children's hunter or a small adult yet? LOOK AT THAT FACE!) but not all are in instant danger.
Meanwhile the AC4H horses ARE in immediate danger. If I had a farm, I could see a couple of those coming to live with me...
Don't worry about the WB's feet, they all require farrier work and supps. WBs are "very delicate" aka wussies, so you must pay farriers and do a lot of maintenance to get the jump and the floating trot. It is worth all the work, btw!
Someone save the WB and the ponies, and as many as can be saved. I don't know how Christy and all the others do what they do, they are great to try to save them all.
