We are trying to decide if we want to sell our paint stud colt. My stud colt is a bay and white tobiano stud colt born 2005. This stud is very sweet stud, my children can play with him. I have two foals coming this year, if we have more studs we will have to sell some. If this stud is homozygous for the tobiano gene what is a good price to ask for him. I know the bloodlines plays into it as well. I was just wanting to see what you all think for a good very sweet stud colt. This stud will make a great stud later on. If we don't get a good enough amount afford for him we will keep him. I have to much time and money in him already.
Thank you for helping me out.

Melissa- depending on your location the price could vary greatly. (also his pedigree will make a difference) In our area, yearlings are not bringing great prices, we try to sell any horses that we don't intend to keep till riding age as weanlings, that way we have less invested in them and they look best when they come right off the mare.

E Watkins,
Thank you for our advice about my colt. We haven't decide yet about selling him or not. We will wait to see what we have in April and May.
I was just wanting to know what to ask for him, if we sold him. We live in Mississippi.
thanks Melissa

Melissa- my best advice is to do some research and find out what colts are bringing in your area. I know for us, if we have to take them to a sale, we can expect anywhere from $300-$800 for a yearling. Now if you have something with excellent bloodlines and pedigree, it could be worth a good bit more. Also selling to an individual will be better than taking him to an auction if you decide to sell him. Good luck! Hope that helped a little !

E Watkins,
Where do you all live? I would not want to take him to a sell. I would not sell him for $300-$800 I would keep him before I give him away.I have been to two sale barns in my life time it is sad to see alot of those horses. I would like for him to go to a show home if possible, if we sell him. I was told we could get $1,500 - $2,500 or more for him. If he is homozygous for the tobiano gene he would be worth more. I think he is worth more then $1,500 now, because we have alot of time and money in him already.I hope we have fillies this time,then I want have to sell him.Did you look at him on the site, what do you think about him?
Thank you for your help.
Melissa

Melissa- We live in NE Kansas, there was a time when young horses would bring more money, but really, the economy is not what it used to be and horses are a luxury item, when times are tough, the market isn't so great for selling them. We often sell well broke horses for $2k-$3k. Maybe the market is better in your state? If he is homozygous that would increase his value but only if he has a good blood line to begin with and good enough confirmation to make him stallion material. I can't help you with pedigree information, I don't know too much about paint pedigrees. Do some shopping and see what horses of his caliber are priced at in your area, then you'll know better how to price him.

E Watkins,
Thank you for your help. I will wait to see what my mares has this April. We are hoping for a filly. Broke to ride horses here can go from $800 - $6000 it depends on the bloodline. My friend(who lives in Mississippi as well) just sold her paint gelding that was western/english horse for $40,000. I was surprise to hear that. I told her she could work with my stud colt for that price. Someone up North brought him. Who has $40,000 for a horse, I sure don't? We wish we all could get this for our horses.Don't get me wrong I would love some of the high price horses, but I can't afford those.
Take care,
MELISSA

Hi Melissa,
I just found out that the sire to my 2 year old colt just sold. He sold for 30,000 dollars. I about sh.. my pants ! I am pretty pleased that I have a colt out of a 30,000 sire.
You have to have big time money for them. Its a tax thing for those that have the money. Its a game! Many use it as a business and right offs/income and it can be done. You just play it in the field that you can and have fun with it!

I dont have a $40,000 horse either,but in my case my colts,when I get them(on rare occasion),they are worth around $2000-$3000 right off the mare,since their sire is the only breeding offspring of his gelded sire,and the rest of the sires are deceased.When in doubt go back to the sire and what his other offspring have sold for.But a good thing to remember about selling horses,they are only worth what someone is willing to pay for them.
