People tell me he's ugly and that he looks like a mule but to me he is priceless and beautiful he has allowed me to live out my dream.
    This is all great fine and dandy. I have not problems with grade horses. They make great horses. My problem is when people start breeding them.

    Green Broke
    The top breeders who actually have money, profit from their horses, and sell to OTHER people who have the money.. Shouldn't stop breeding. There is still a market for those types of horses.. Whether the average joe can afford them or not.

    While the "okay" breeders, who have generally nice stock, need to cut down. We can't make anyone stop or reduce. If they're making money, they're going to keep on doin' what they do.. Regardless of 'what's out there now'.

    While there are tons of grades, people still want them. Like said before, they shouldn't be bred.. But there's a decent demand. I have a grade (four actually) and they're nifty horses. The one I'm selling I got for $600 turned him around and (hopefully) selling for 3k. From where I'm at, if the horses can do the job, someone's going to buy it. Papers or not.

    I also think a broke broke horse always holds value with all these backyarders selling their stuff as green broke cause its had a saddle on and has been sat on most are willing to shell out more for the one that's going to be of use now.

    Once a horse is trained and going well and is safe and sound it will have value regardless of registered or not. Now a well bred well trained horse will sell for more then one who is grade. However if you are looking at gelding to gelding then there is little difference unless you are wanting to show at the breed show level. Stallions and mares will always have more value if they are well bred well trained and registered.

    The guy I got my filly from has these really nicely bred horses and they are standing in a field rotting never handled just reproducing more unruly wild horses if I had the room I'd have bought a few more from him with when I got Bourbon she was a rearing never been messed with mess how many would have seen that and been gone...ha my husband wanted to be but I said no I want her project horse or not. That burns me up too if a horse has handling and is broke that makes them more marketable and less likely to end up in Canada or Mexico in a kill pen.

    Foal
    Ok here goes you do not ride paper or pedigree or even conformation for that matter I am the average owner I think..... Me and my family do not go to shows or eventing all we do is go on trail rides as a family and we could never afford the 2 or 3 thousand $ horse or own a great pedigree horse but we do have one that is a paint but the lady gave her to my daughter for helping in her barn for the summer he needed a good home and yes he is great looking boy but needs alot of training is scared of everything. My other 2 mares r grades 1 is appy other is arabXqh I think and they are the best horses you could ask for. There is too much of every thing in the world today too many people too many cats, dogs, no matter what you look at there is too much of it some well bred and others well not so much....Even ugly people that do not have great conformation have children...No offense to anyone as I am well not the best looking or have great conformation for that matter. In old days you had to meet standard to have children as well... I guess what I am saying is that some people breed for companionship and other just look at pedigree it has been that way for ever and will proble never change. You have 2 types of people the well off do and the not so well off but both deserve to own a horse and both can take just good care of them with or without big fancy barns or areana's come of us just love to hang out with our animals not there pedigree.
