Just a little project pony as Lacey is still out of action for the foreseeable future and he seems like a nice little horse to me.

I think he looks nice, but to me £950 for an unbroken 6yo in this economy is an awful lot.

There isn't really anything cheaper up for sale unless its smaller and I'm too tall for much smaller.

I think hes overpriced, try haggling them, doesn't look 14'2 but photos always look different.
What about these?

Im guessing you and your mom have made up, if your looking to buy another?
I honestly wouldnt pay anything near that amount of money for a pony like that. I think you would be better off looking for something more 15.2hh. You can get plenty of horses out there half the price who are just as good. Im sure Classic Astra is selling a mare who's up for a project?

nice, a brick house as we call them. lol...happy haggling..start at 5oo and hopefully meet more your end!

Rhea - thanks, I like that 3rd one, will have a better look at him when I've got more time, the others are a bit young though if we wanna get going fairly quickly as its not to keep.
Now I live with my boyfriend, my relationship with my mum has been much much better - if she starts on me I can just leave to a place where she can't contact me right away, plus not being at home seems to have stopped her getting at me so much.
Its kind of gonna be a project with a friend? She's going to university in September and sold her pony about a year ago ago as she couldn't drive and found cycling to look after her pony before and after school too much with the work load she was getting (darn private schools :P [I joke]). So she used to go riding with me on Willow and me on Lace a couple of times a week, but obviously with Lacey not doing anything we can't. She'd really like a horse to do a bit with over the summer but didn't want to buy 1 as she'd have to sell so soon, and couldn't find anything she liked on short-term loan.
Soo we were talking about this a while, figured we'd get an official written contract ect just incase of any issues, and with me taking a gap year before uni, if we didn't sell it in time before she has to go to uni, I'm still around to look after it and sell it.
I didn't type that up before but as people can be a bit funny and judgmental of me, I thought it was better not to just in case.
We're looking for a cobby type, 14.2 - 16hh really as I'm quite tall and she's quite small (so doesn't want a massive green youngster to ride & handle), 4 years on (so provided its got handling ect sorted, it'd be mature enough, obviously depending on the animal itself, to start working). Pref cobby because its more likely to be cheaper to keep in sense of feed, possibly shoes that sort of thing. Also if its the sort of 15hh mark, its more likely to fit the rugs I've got for Lacey & Willow so saves costs there, and again a cobby type would be more likely to fit the saddle i've got especially for projects (It's adjustable and fit Rio, my old haffy, like a glove).
I'm open to any suggestions of any ponies if you've got any :)
Was defo planning on haggling for the little dun I found if he's suitable. I thought that once in his summer coat, schooled ect he'd look quite smart, and if he was capable of doing your average PC/RC stuff he'd be in a good market to sell as he'd perfect family pony size/type imo.

Sorry if you thought I was bombarding you with ponies! I do like this fella, with a bit of tlc and winter coat gone he'll look ace, best of luck wiith the viewing :)
8th February 2010, 02:52 PM
I really like him, looks a nice sort. If you like him just try to get the price down a bit. Also the written contract sounds a good idea :)
8th February 2010, 02:59 PM
No, not at all Rhea, I'm open to any ideas :D, just we have a little criteria is needs to fit to be suitable for us
Thanks Coloreded (sorry don't know your name). I don't think we will fall out, or there be any issues but with something this big and expensive its better safe than sorry :)
8th February 2010, 03:13 PM
Looks nice, again agree with others, price is a tad steep.
8th February 2010, 05:24 PM
trudee is up for 950 as a project horse...
8th February 2010, 05:33 PM
Thanks, I've pmed you :)

You still looking for a project now that you've found out the problem with Lacey?
