I was considering breeding my mare this year, she is World Champion sired, pointed in APHA breed shows, leading our open local show in Halter and 19 and over classes, and is as kind and gentle as anyone could want.
Then I found a yearling sorrel and white tobiano filly, possibly homozygous, registered with nice bloodlines and very cute. For $200.00. Put down the deposit yesterday, pick her up after the brand inspection this week.
Everyone is right. The market has collapsed for horses, and they are out there for a pittance. I bought my new filly for less than I would have spent on the pre-breeding vet exam! And Whiskey, my wonderful talented mare, gets to keep on showing with no health risks. Win, Win!
