I think horses are over priced anyways. The one foal I have cost me a fortune but I dont see him being worth anymore than last year's horse I bought for a fraction of the cost.

Good for you for owning such a neat breed

i agree with you that some horses are rediculusly priced. i knew an andalusian that was 3 years old, i thing he was green broken, and he was 150 000 dirhams or 40,849 dollars he was pretty but seriously....

People have always scared me a bit, you see - they're so complicated. I suppose that's why I prefer horses.

It's a lot like nuts and bolts - if the rider's nuts, the horse bolts!

I would probably own one of every breed of horse if it were even remotely possible to ! I think many horses are overpriced, either because of their training, or their bloodline. I was very lucky to get an awesome, sweet, puppy-dog of a horse for only $500!! He is only 2, but very gentle and willing to please.

Everything can be achieved through patience!

I'd rather have a problem horse than a problem man. The horse I can work with. The man---I cannot help!
