That is not what I am doing.......its just a cost ratio thing for me if I was buying a horse with a higher price ticket I would expect it not to be lame, not to have sarcoids, and too be conformationaly correct etc.
Now if I was to be given that horse and the sarcoid was the only issue I might consider the horse depending on the location of the sarcoid.....but again it would depend on my original budget.
But if your budget is $15,000.00 and you find a horse for $8500.00 with a sarcoid then you might consider buying the horse with the sarcoid as you would be within your budget.......the only risk would be could you get rid of it permanately???
My point is it is expensive so make sure its in your budget and that you would be happy with the horse if you could not get rid of it. I personally would not be.
