    Default More Fun - Canter Cuties!!!

    Time for more fun! So much depressing stuff going on (tornados, FEI etc) what better way to lift spirits than SHOP!!!


    I think this guy is gorgeous- worth driving a trailer through NYC gorgeous. Got some heel to him and great bone. Really classy looking horse.

    This filly is really nice - leggy, heels, good angles. Looks like an "old timey" TB

    Nice pedigree too. http://www.pedigreequery.com/agrappina


    This guy looks like a good prospect too. Neck set isn't as good as the first two, but still a very nice horse. Pics are little funky.

    Completely drool worthy, especially the first two.

    Don't the hind legs look wonky on the grey stallion?

    That grey filly is lovely! I usually only have an eye for the big 'uns since I look plain silly with my heels hanging below a horse's belly. I've been keeping my eye on this lady. If she's still available once I have my farm I may have to go get her.

    I think he's standing on an unlevel crack in the pavement. I looked hard too before I posted him.

    Agrappina, please! What a lovely girl in pics and on paper.

    The pedigree on the gray stallion makes me drool, but he seems light behind to me in the pictures. I certainly would not kick him out of my barn as a gelding though!

    I love the first one, the stallion. Twinkle Star is cute but I am not crazy about the way he stands so much over his front legs. I used to ride a horse like that and he always felt unbalanced. (I felt like I was walking the plank all the time.) When standing under saddle, his front feet were always under my feet. When he tripped it was like being on a teeter totter. Since he's that way in all the pics, I assume that it's his natural stance due to conformation.

    Gypsymare,
    That mare was in my barn last month at Mountaineer, I haven't seen her recently but I know she was still for sale then. She is just as nice in person as her pics and very TALL girl.

    Wow!! The first two are stunning.

    Nice breeding as well. That stallion, would make someone one heck of a gelding!

    Yeah, I haven't WANTED a horse off a few photos in a while, but man I wish my circumstances were a little different right now. That's a nice horse.

    LOL I threw the bay in there so everybody wouldn't think I was such a grey nut, which I am!!! Just something about those greys...

    For what it's worth

    Agrappina's sire stands/lives at our farm, although his owner is now only breeding him to his own private mares, he is one of the nicest, level headed, breeding stallions I have ever been around, puppy dog personality and is a total saint! He is well loved and is a total mooch also has always been and is now a picture of health and soundness. Lovely lovely stallion!
    Forward is good

    Pretty sure the gray mare is sold already. At least someone I know called on her and was told that.

    Thanks for the update! If all goes well I'll have a farm in July but then I'll be a bit short on funds for a couple of months. Need tractor, run-ins, upgraded fencing, etc. I wonder how firm her pricing is. 5k is pretty high for an ottb.

    5K isn't high for a tall sound one who has been let down, and is at the farm. It is a bit different than buying them while they are still at the track. Good luck...hope you can get her.

    Looks like she sold. 5K looked like a reasonable price for her - Lovely mare of a sport horse type, already let down. The really nice ones (uphill, tall and sound) don't last long and don't go at fire sale prices.
