I got JJ for the sum total of zero dollars. I adore that horse. He's worth as much or more to me than any of the horses I've paid good money for over the years.
I find it insulting that you would believe those of us who take on a horse for little or nothing would treat them less well than those for whom we've paid a hefty price.
It doesn't work that way. Horses are living, breathing, sentient beings. You can't compare them to an inanimate object like a car. It's like comparing apples to kangaroos.
I take good care of my vehicle as well. Brand new it cost me far less than $20,000. I've had it for 13 years now, and I've spent a lot of money keeping it on the road. So there goes your theory out the window for horses AND vehicles.
