Re: [RC] selling horses - Pam DeMerchant


Unfortunately, prices all boil down to supply and demand.  As long as there is 
gross overbreeding (a lot of it done under the guise of "adoption"--ever notice 
how many horses up for "adoption" are less than a year old, not old or 
unsound?), prices are low.  If your buyer can find what they want (a finished 
endurance horse for under $1500), they'll go elsewhere.  If they can't find it, 
they'll be back for your $3500 finished horse.  I feel sorry for honest sellers 
in this environment.  I would love to be in the horse business, but after 
serious consideration in choosing a career, chose to go with a non-horsey 
career that pays enough to support my horse habit.
