Flying to see Prospect Horses For Sale
July 4th was a busman's holiday for Elizabeth. She flew to Alabama
with a friend to check out some new Prospect
Horses For Sale. Elizabeth
is a pilot and she's always looking for a chance to get up in
the air in a small plane.
Bob Goodman, husband of buyer Dr. Susan Llewallyn
Always a Lady), is looking for a new fox hunt
horse and . . . he has a plane. Bob built his plane and flys
it from their farm in Carrolton, GA. Elizabeth and Bob discussed
where all the Prospect Horses were located and it was decided
to check out some nearby in Alabama since our Kentucky contacts
were unavailable due to the holiday.
Bob flew over to the Cherokee County Airport where Elizabeth
waited with cameras and tack for the short flight over to Alabama
to try horses.
Horses for sale - all price ranges!
Elizabeth is good friends with a breeder/trainer of Thoroughbred
race horses in Alabama. When he is done racing his horses, they
retire to his farm. Well, too many horses are now retired and they
need to find homes ASAP! Some are free, some are very inexpensive
and some are very fancy. If you are looking for a mare or gelding
give Elizabeth a call. We have photos of most of the horses but
there are too many to list.
Bob had the unusal chance to ride a few Prospect
Horses. Most of these horses are sold sight-unseen and never ridden
by the buyers because they are at the track. But, Elizabeth had
the time and Bob had the plane, so off into the wild blue yonder
they went to try horses.
Brothers - All in the "Family"
We like to buy horses from breeders and trainers we can trust.
If they have sold us good horses in the past, then we stay in touch
and hopefully they will let us sell more when they are done with
their racing careers. Our breeder/trainer contact in Alabama has
allowed us to sell many horses for him. He knows his horses go
to good homes and he can follow their successes on our Web site.
That is that is very important to him.
Bob and Elizabeth had
the opportunity of riding the half brothers of two of
other horses from this trainer. We rode Classic
Casey's brother "Creek" and Charlie's brother "Two
"Creek" is the half brother of Classic
Classic Casey and his brother "Creek" look very similar.

list of Irish Thoroughbreds.

sound horse, give us a call. Bob and Elizabeth found lots of well
priced horses in Alabama. Most are Throughbreds but there is
