As my farrier said to me: "The cheapest part of owning a horse is the purchase price." Does my farrier charge me a lot more than he charges my for my daughter's horse? Yes, yes he does. I knew this when I bought my horse. Yes, he eats about 3 times as much daughter's horse, but guess what... I've wanted a Belgian draft for 20 years, and I'm finally in a station in life where I can afford one. I wouldn't trade him for anything.
When asked "what are you going to do with that?" My stock response has always been "Why get my fat ass on him and ride him."
