    The horse market is overloaed with mediocre horses for sale, with the down economy many many horses are not moving. Sadly as a horse rescue I was offered 44 since THanksgiving week! There are weanling and yearlings, some registered going through the auction house and feedlot for $35-60 a head. Its really really sad [​IMG] I hope you can keep him if you can't sell him he will be a cute boy.

    I know all ~ the horse market [​IMG] No problems keeping him- I have over 300 acres, and my SIL can always use another rope horse.
     
  6. Quote:I can not believe what has happened to the market. People are just going to have to stop breeding all together. The process of AI darn near destroyed the high end market. We got out of the horse business 4 years ago and we took a punishing even then.

    The wife kept ONE horse and now we could not give her away. She is push button with two glass eyes and of top on it all a beautiful medicine hat. We have a few freinds that tell us people are calling them and asking if they could drop thier horses off on thier property. No one wants to feed for the winter. We all hope this will get better, at least some in the spring.

    I went to the local auction and sold one of our minis we no longer wanted (he is ~ 2 inches too tall and we did not want to spend money on registering him, we only keep class A). I got more money for the mini than people were getting for BROKE, PAPERED and CUTE mares and geldings. It was just pathetic. We had a lady from the local riding stables bring us a horse for a ccmpanion for our mare. She told us to keep 'em cuase she could not sell 'em.

    Heck, you can buy Lamas and Alpacas CHEAP here. They used to cost a fortune and many are registered or have babies with them and pregnant for next year !!

    Yeah I got mostly 'out' when prices were still high- but I saw this coming. Down to 6 broodmares - from 38.
