Wheeler was local (about 2 hours from me) he was $900 and Waylon was about 3 1/2 hours and cost $1200. Last I heard Waylon was for sale. He went to a riding camp for at need children and they were afraid of his size. He is located in n/w Iowa.
Where are you from? I know that will play a large part in your cost.
In the heavily forested area of Texas. I'm wanting to buy a horse after college, which will be in a few years, but I'm going to attend college out of state, in which state I have no idea yet. I'm basically trying to weigh out the pros and cons of a draft or a draft cross comparatively to a lighter breed, but it's so hard to get an answer because it depends on the horse specifically.
