Hi Maryanne and all!
Maryanne, your report that a man paid $19,000 for
a Kiger mustang cracked me up. It reminded me of the arabian prices
in the 1980s!
I own a Spanish Mustang (not a Kiger but to me all
the Spanish Mustangs, Spanish Barbs, Kigers, and Wilbur Cruce horses are
genetically pretty durn close). I love the little guy more than words
can say and I also know that there are quite a few more like him being
bred by responsible breeders who are asking quite a bit less than $19,000
for them. (I paid $750 for Dino!) Of course, if anyone wants to offer
them big bucks they'd take it in a heart beat because they are breeding
for the love of the horses. Kigers are the only ones I know of that
are being "marketed." Dino is 4 1/2 and is going on his first big
ride next week: 6 days in Death Valley (not endurance, an ETI trail ride
but a good intro to multi day stuff I think). I'll let you know how
he does when we get back.
Happy trails, Laney
