    Default Surely, someone...

    has a place for this gal...

    My perch cross who just did her first training came off CL in an ad just like this one. I'm trying to get my BO to bite, but if someone wants a great little prospect, check her out! There are a bunch of COTHers in Knoxville who could take a peek and I will cut someone a deal on starting her if they buy her!

    Anyone?!

    Here's my 15.2 perchie/QH doing her first T stadium round... don't underestimate the draft crosses... they have some power behind!

    Lauren,

    What a smart forward careful perch x you have--a great team you make.

    I have worked just a couple perch/perchx in my life and both were so surprisingly forward, I really enjoyed it. If I were closer, or shippers didn't have to charge so much with current fuel prices, I'd be all over her. I'm becoming a fan of Perch/crosses. Someone get her!

    Exactly the type I'll be looking for when the time comes...unfortunately that time is still a long way away . Someone must want her so we can all be jealous!

    What a cutie! If only she were a little closer, she would be at my barn! I bet she will grow a bit too, but if she really is 15.3, she would still be a good size.

    I totally would. And I could actually afford her! It's about another month before I can buy a horse. But I can definitely think about it and see what I can do. She looks great to me!

    I think I've got my BO convinced... But if someone else wants her in the meantime, i'll let you take her! If I get her she'll be looking for a new home but I'll be starting her in the meantime.

    My current love is a perch cross Epona, thanks for posting that video! I'm getting inspired to try the move up to Training in the fall or spring. Did you have issues getting her fit for xc?

    Default Love them.

    Here is a short video of my 4 y.o Perch TB cross from last Saturday. First time he has ever seen a grid, we eventually built up to 4 in a row, and he never batted an eye.

    Aw, I hope someone gives this girl a chance. She looks nicely put together and is really, really cute. And for only $400...

    I love my clyde X to pieces. Got him as a barely-broke 7-year-old and he's turned into a really cool dude. Drafties are just the best. My next horse will definitely be another draft X of some sort.

    OP, if your BO ends up with her, or anyone else on this BB, please keep us posted on her progress!

    P.S. OP, lovely stadium round on your drafty mare!

    If someone can afford to let this one grow up, I think he looks great. A yearling QH/draft. Also in Tennessee on Craigslist.

    Thanks for the compliments on my girl! She's a peach. I just posted the pics from Maydaze here on my facebook:
    http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...5&l=1fa8e2b841

    I didn't have a problem getting her fit, in fact, at Poplar at the beginning of May we decided she was TOO fit- she was about to come out of her skin- so we backed off. She was doing 3x5 trots and 3x3 canters, but she is not your typical draftie. I'll post a thread devoted to her first training a little later.


    I am sending my friend out to check out Miss Perchie the Second, but would prefer someone else claim her! I will only be able to take her if she's going to be a fairly quick resale, so if she isn't pretty steady and quiet, it'll be a pass for me. SO... keep networking this pretty gal!

    OP, any news on this mare? Just wondering if someone was able to scoop her up. She looks like a cutie and likely worth the time and effort to bring her along.

    I didn't get her, unfortunately, and neither did anyone I know. I was hoping a COTHer would pop up and say "We got her!!"

    *sigh*
