Horse Price...

Just got a question. Can you really tell how much someone paid for a horse by a picture.....I know price also includes the horses training, age etc. I know this is a stupid question but I ask cuz when im looking at other pictures I don't want to assume hey someone owns a selle francais that means that horse was 10,000 dollars. I would rather not assume anything that way I don't upset anyone. But is it rude to ask what someone paid for there horse?

You can't tell what someone paid for a horse from a picture. There's just no way. you can't even really tell what a horse is worth from a picture. And even knowing what he's worth doesn't mean that's how much was paid. People pay more/less for horses than their worth all the time (although I suspect people usually end up paying more; only the lucky few end up paying less).

as for it beig rude to ask how much someone paid for their horse, I don't think it is. But I know there are people oput there who would find it rude. I don't understand why, but someone people are like that about money. They won't tell you how much they make, how much their house was, etc. I personally don't find it rude at all to ask such things. But again, there are people out there who do so I would tread carefully.

Yah...Sometimes when I look up horses on dreamhorse some of the horses that sell for 2500 look like they should sell for less because they either are not broke, old, under or over weight etc. It seems like the horses are over priced to be honest. But with the horse market I have seen soo many good horse selling for 500 or less.

I think what happens a lot with the over priced horses is that people think they can get back what the spent on the horse, which is just not realistic. With the under priced ones they are either not as good as the ad claims and so they are not actually over priced or they have been on the market for a while at a higher price with no success at selling. Or they know they aren't going to get what the horse is worth.
