Subject: Buy Out of State - Don't limit yourself
In reply to: Anya Copeland 's message, "Friesian Gelding Colorado" on 18:07:54 08/28/12 Tue

Iím from Michigan and I purchased my Friesian from Connecticut. Obviously there are shipping costs involved but you can negotiate the selling price to offset the shipping in many cases. I negotiated my purchase price for 50% less of the asked price and he was a lovely 1st premie Grand Champion colt and received STER predicate stallion last year.

You can also buy through a Freisian auctioneer. For example, the Friesian Connection (in Michigan) just auctioned 18 horses through Addis Equine, Inc. You can get on their mailing list by emailing a request to info@addisequineauctions.com. Also to view the current Friesians going through November 13th auction go to http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?llr=ze4ek4iab&v=001hkrcbzQb4VUBkqGPlPEc1VBhp4hj2oPHqo4MMaG8-Ze77MBBUkuxIF4Q4e8OD87DtfHj3YZRWPm-7-lVqCgg1SkPPmZ0q6T95vu_l3cA668%3D.

Addis Equine, Inc appears to hold numerous auctions for FHANA breeders.

I would recommend if buying out of state that you:
1) always deal with a reputable breeder,
2) physically see the horse,
3) if not able to personally see the horse then view lots of videos and photos,
4) have the horse vet checked.
5) ask for a copy of the registration papers
6) if the horse is an adult ask for the linear score sheet.
