  1. "Mountain" Horses

    Are these Rainmakers horses? Very nice!
  2. New pictures of my girl!

    She is gorgeous!! Reminds me a little of my Mare in the first pic. I could let my Mare sit for weeks and hop right on without any worries. Gotta love a dependable gaited horse.
  3. Gaited mustang

    If there is a market for gaited horses in your area there is a market for that Mustang. I've seen a gaited Mustang advertised around my parts once & by the time I decided to call it already sold... Early bird gets the worm, eh? I think a gaited Mustang is the best of both worlds. I would take one in a heartbeat if I had the room.
  4. Horse Flipping

    Well a $7,500 horse really depends on location. You are going to find a lot less for $7,500 in Southern California than in say Tennessee.
  5. I finally found one, the search is over

    Oooh, gaited! Congrats, from what little bit I can see she looks like a cutie. Would love to see some bigger pics!
  6. Yup, got to agree with everyone else. Looks like a Chocolate Rocky. Baylee- They are known for having awesome temperments! Of course every horse is an individual but my mare Satra is a great trail mount as she is almost fearless. Oh and what a smooth gait they have... Here is my mare Satra to compare. Keep in mind their coats change alot during the year. Not a good pic but taken on my camera phone 2 weeks ago after a bath: And a pic of her as a youngin'. As you can see her mane & tail used to be very light. The colors do vary slightly from horse to horse. BTW, beautiful horse! He have a name yet? If your friend got him for $75 and he is truly a Rocky she got a steal (assuming she is able to win his trust). They aren't cheap horses. If there where horses like him at auctions around here I would be in TROUBLE!!
  7. Gaited with non-gaited

    My Rocky adjusts her pace according to who we are riding with. Like many stated- its a training issue. There is a pretty good article in the recent Horse Illustrated about this. Explains that a gaited horse should learn a slower walk.
  8. Some pics of my Mustang, Cruzer!!!

    Wow, what beautiful Mustangs! I would post a pic of our newly acquired Mustang but none of the pics that I have of him do him justice. He has a photo shoot with me on Sunday so hopefully I will finally get a good pic of him.
  9. Horse Selling Photos?

    Hi everyone, I was hoping that you all could give me some feedback. I really enjoy helping people sell their horses and thought that I might be able to make some extra cash doing it. I constantly see horrible photos of really nice horses on the internet & in the HorseTrader. To me a photo says a lot & a bad photo easily scares off potential buyers. I would like to charge people to take photos and videos of their horses for sale. Also, I would like to charge a fee for placing ads and setting up a website for the person so that buyers have all the information they need to decide if they are interested in said horse. I was thinking that since I will have to drive to see the horse I would need to charge a per mile fee. What would be the norm for this? .45 cents per mile? Also, what would be a fair price to charge per photo & video so that its reasonable for the seller as well as worth while for me? Also, I was thinking that I could make up some sort of questionnaire that the seller would have to fill out so I have all the information that I would need to make said website & put up ads. What do you think of that? Is this something that you would consider investing in to help market a sales horse? Would love to hear everyones opinions. And just to give you an idea, this is the type of webside I would like to set up for other peoples horses: Thanks!
  10. Question for the Rocky owners

    Well Satra is very people oriented however she has great ground manners. I don't think that I would clasify the breed as this from my limited experience. I would classify them as very personable however. I think the whole 'in your space' is a training issue & ground manners need to be worked on.
