People can be so sick, This economy is showing a lot of peoples true colors. Unfortunately when all is said and done these cases will cause the powers that be to impose stricter regulations on breeding operations. They do need to impose regulations and fines for backyard breeding creating mutts. I will probably stir up a can of worms saying this. But oh well... However there are pros and cons on all arguments. Most people treat their horses as an investment and to a degree it is. Unless it is a consistent winner in events or classes it is a hobby and a pet. Too many people buying prospects that do not work out and try selling them saying "I spent $2500.00 for the horse and another $6,000 on training so I'm asking $10,000 dollars for the horse. Sorry but the average person does not agree with that kind of logic. The painful truth is You took a gamble and lost, That is the harsh reality of it, do not try to profit from the loss at the horses expense by holding out for your dream price if you cannot afford to feed the poor creature. If your Barrel Racing, Roping, Jumping prospect does not cut it for you then sell at reasonable price to someone just getting into the events. Anything you own is a gamble. People should lower their standards and take the loss rather than holding out for the Brass ring, Resulting in the starvation deaths of so many innocent animals.
