Re: [RC] To bred or not to bred - Truman Prevatt

Unfortunately there are more horses bred than the economy demands. This is true of all breed. If you don't think Arabs are over bred come to FL to the auctions. You can pick up a pretty good Arab for 300 to 500 bucks at th auction if you will settle for a 14-2 to 15 hand Arab. You can also get crap if you are not careful. They are a dime a dozen. I know a couple people that make a some decent money buying them, training them and turning them around for 1500.

As long as the model that you need many horses to get a good one is followed - independent of show horses, cutting horses, reining horses, race horses (Arab and TB) or endurance horses; there will be an over supply of horses. The breeders make their money when they sell them. It doesn't matter what happens after the sell them, they still have their money. In fact the more horses a breeder sells, the more money they make. Horse breeding in most respect is a business, and in a business profit is what matters.
