Ok any foal experts out there? What do you think of the legs on this one? Am I delusional to be hoping that she’s about to take a step forward in each and every photo?
Also, if you’re selling her, why bother to breed her again?!
“I have a reg. AQHA dun mare for sale. Has a buckskin tobiano filly on her side will sell both for the price of $1500 firm. Will breed her back next month or sold before. Filly can be reg.APHA.”
I know foals can look a little wonky at first, but, um, I fear for the little one. And the (potential) future little one in that mare’s baby oven.
On to the part where they’re selling mare and baby, but if not sold in time they’ll breed her again.
I need to take a breather.
You don’t want mommy or baby, but if no one takes them in time, you’ll create another one that you (presumably) won’t want either. Where’s the logic in that one? Wake up and smell the beat pulp! In this horse market, impregnating this mare will not increase her value, nor will it encourage potential buyers.
One last thing, what’s going on with that mare’s feet? Farrier care people, it’s not just a suggestion, it’s what we like to call a necessity. As in, get your goddamned horse’s feet trimmed! You know that stud fee you’re about to pay? Why not save it and use the money for some trims? It’d be looked kindly upon by potential buyers! Ooooh dear, you weren’t planning on just putting her in a field with a random stud, were you? No no no, that will not do. Not at all.
