Good grief.....that is not much money.

Save a year or, so and get something worth putting the time and effort into.

Eh, it doesn't hurt to look anyways. I know a few breeders who used to sell their yearlings for between $1000-$1200 just a few years ago but now are lucky if they can get $900, the economy is bad... and it is very possible to get a young horse for around that asking price. Just gotta keep an eye out.

Good horses will always sell...and for good money.

But, let me ask you.

Why put the time and effort into raising a foal if the economy is that bad???

Because you love horses...? Not trying to argue, just giving the OP some encouragement.

No, no, you can. But it's just different to raise and train one yourself, just depends on the persons opinion and choices. To me, it would be worth the time and money. I could spend more on one close to home. The one I have my eye on currently is $600, but $800 to haul her out here so that's why the low price tag of what I can afford

Get some quotes on here and see what happens.

Be mindful not all foals haul well.
