lol yeah i bet it is! im doing 60 now so a little better! hoping to get it down to 50 though!!

although i do have a lot more time now than i did, plus if i can get this yard i can cut it down to 40 and have more time for buying and selling, especially with my friend helping me i wont find it so hard!

OMG 80 hours a week? Thats illegal!

Id say about 1000 max as she needs bringing back into work etc and wont have done alot

just for the mare or for the both?

Aren't coloureds usually quite a bit more expensive than you would usually pay?

how do u mean?

Coloureds are usually cob-like and they're always more expensive than thoroughbreds aren't they? Maybe I'm just talking rubbish, I just always thought they were.

yeah i thought so, im lucky i got cj cheap but only cos he was a colt! lol all the others ive bought have been alot more expensive

I'd say 1200 max for both.

I'd go in as cheaply as poss.... you can always go up on the deal (but not down!)..... they both will need a lot of work - and you have got the winter, stables & feed to consider. (Although that could be to your benefit - price wise!).
