I know a lot of times you get what you pay for, but geez.
Well, I think $2500 is more like the least you can normally find one. I see them advertised $5k-9k here also. That is too rich for my blood. If that is what is costs to get a reputable one, I will have to keep combing the gutters, lol!
Really, I DO think some good horses fall through the cracks. But never when you are looking for them you know! My neighbor got a 7 yr old Fox Trotter mare for $800. I was- and still am, a bit jealous. I really would have liked to have gotten a younger horse. But hey, God sent me the one I got and I love her to pieces. I'm sure there is a reason things worked out the way they did. And I keep telling my neighbor I want first dibs if she ever sells hers.
