I too have noticed a huge jump in pricing here in Illinois and Indiana
also. I bought my arab gelding, Tristan, for $1200, not a bad deal at
all. He was considered a 'show ring reject' (not enought flash?!) or he
could have gone for $3500. I think it also depends on what breeds are
most prevelent in your area. Here, Quarter Hoses are the main thing.
