Im just woundering what price I should ask for one of my horses.

She is an 9yo Wetherbys Reg 17.1 Chestnut TB Mare By Presenting (sire of gold cup winner)
Nellie is a very sweet mare, and only offerd for sale as a boodmare or light hack as she pulled a tendon when racing around 4-5 years ago now. Sold straight from the field. Eligble for the ROR in hand classes. Good to catch. Lives out all year round with just hay/haylage and No Rug!! Lots of bone, would breed excellent hunter type foals. Now here's the bad bit....She can be slightly unsound when lunging on her tendon that she pulled. I am only putting her up for sale as wasted.

She's is 100% sound it's only when she's putting a lot of pressure on her leg she tends to dip slightly, for example on the lunge in canter.

If she's not sound then about 300 probably :( It's a pity as she sounds really nice!

How long is it since she had her injury?

Umm not a lot, sorry!
If she is unsound then she isnt eligable for ROR classes, im pretty sure they need to be sound fpr them!!

If she is unsound when putting pressure on her leg, then surely she's not suitable to be a broodmare?

In all reality she's probably worth meat money...

I think I will just keep her in her field for forever and a day. We saved her from going for meat when she pulled the tendon, the meat man said he would give 700 for her. I could never send any of them for meat!!

Good for you, I could never do it either. Sorry you didn't get the answer you had hoped for :(

Personally I would keep her, the only thing I would be willing to do is loan her out as a companion only or give her away free as a companion, I would never ever let the meat man have my horse :( good for you for not.

Sorry to be a pedant but she is not 100% sound if she dips even if only slightly!

17.1!! thats on big TB

You might manage to sell her as a nice hack or to a home that knows how to cope with a horse with a slight problem, most people should know that circle work really isnt ideal for a horse with tendon issues anyway and as long as you are upfront about it then it shouldnt be a problem

as she is an ex racehorse, has a problem with her leg and also her height she would probably be a 700-800 horse i would say although you can pick some ex racers with apparently no problems for around 500
