You may have noticed I'd stepped back a bit from publicising everything but thought I'd let you know I might have a viewing lined up. I want to ask more questions first.
She has said she would accept 3k, and that it still sounds like a reasonable offer.

she looks a nice stamp i hope all goes well when you go look at her

Lovely looking horse, she has a very kind face.
Wish you best of luck :)
Has horsey got a name?

she looks lovely. Hope this one goes well!
16th February 2010, 08:05 PM
Haven't asked! I barely asked her anything, will ring back tomorrow, wasn't really the right time before.
16th February 2010, 08:46 PM
She looks really nice. I noticed the updates were lacking, I really enjoy following what's what with your search. Good luck, hope you get to see her. x

She looks honest, but quite plain. I'm not keen on her back end, looks a bit weak, and I never like seeing them worked fully booted up, always makes me suspicious of why they need boots if they're not jumping.
The advert says very little, she's not proven in any discipline so it would depend what you wanted her for.

Am not going to say too much as you have not asked for opinions and don't want to speak out of turn,but would say get a full vetting,and ask the seller why she's willing to drop her price so much.£750 is a lot to be offering to drop before you've even seen the horse!!
Good luck with it,if you like her that's all that matters,just remember eyes wide open!!

Good luck loony, shes a pretty girlie :) x

Good luck with her she sounds just up your street!
17th February 2010, 11:19 AM
I really like her she sounds a lovely mare. Hope it all goes well.
I always work my horses fully booted after years ago having a horse spook and gouge an inch long half cm deep chunk out of his boot on the fence. His leg was fine which it wouldn't have been without the boot so boots aren't necessarily there due to a movement issue but just in case :)

Good luck with the viewing, she does look a nice honest mare, very kind expression. x

Shes lovely, hardly says anything about her in the add, which is strange considering the prices up as.
17th February 2010, 12:12 PM
Agree with Rhea, does she look wither high?? and low backend? Might just be the pic though. Good luck
17th February 2010, 01:00 PM
Good luck with the viewing - she reminds me a bit of Ben - is she irish draught?

I like her Emmalou.
I don't think it is appropriate to pick out little conformation faults because, obviously if a horse is conformationally excellent they are not going to be in the range of purchase of any of us! All of us on here have horses with less than perfect bodies. We love them because we clicked with them and they have other enormous attributes that far outweigh any minor imperfections.
My Stan has a weak backend and a big head but he is lovely and great to ride. What's more I saw these faults when I first laid eyes on him but I still wanted him. If she feels sweet for you under the saddle and your heart melts when you get up close to her then wow! :)
Sorry Loony, when i looked at the pic it was what i saw and as Jane says if she feels "sweet under the saddle and your heart melts" then youv'e found your perfect horse. Good luck

17th February 2010, 03:39 PM
Best of luck dearest!!!!! She looks lovely x
17th February 2010, 04:47 PM
Good luck! She has a lovely face.
Just on the topic of your horse hunt - sure you won't have missed this beauty, but just in case! HM002H623
I think he is absolutely stunning and sounds amazing.

I emailed about him actually and they never replied. May ring them next week, won't be able to see 2 horses in 1 weekend.
