    Default Other than the obvious...distress sale? What is this about?

    Is there a back story here? Any red flags? Or just a genuine fire sale (though not quite fire sale prices, yet)?

    No clue about backstory but don't see any red flags based on what is here.

    Youngsters 2-5 years with none broke listed as TB crosses-meaning no papers. Couple of late teen types that have been used for breeding and likely not rideable. Plus an unregistered Pony stud.

    They just need to move them for whatever reason but the prices are fair for the offerings. Market is saturated with this kind.

    I think this is the same place that was a thread on Sporthorse breeding and as it turned out, she was using 'fire sale' to bring people into the farm to look at the horses. Don't quote me on it, though...

    There was another site with a similar name then that one so don't want to assume anything but...yeah, remember that one. What a train wreck...

    Over on Off Course maybe a year ago? Search, maybe it is still there and survived the format change.
