So we shold make horse ownership an exclusive club? I have understand as a 16 year old world views are a bit ignorant, but who should decide the floor price. What if a well bred horse turns out to be a dud? Who should over pay for that? You need to realize that these horses weren't bred for slaughter, but that is the only demand. I have seen well bred horses sell for $200 or less at production sales.
Many people that can only afford a cheap vehicle take better care of it than some that can afford to buy high priced vehicles. Why? Because it is of value to them. Same goes for horses. Just because a horse is well bred and high priced doesn't mean it won't be abused or neglected. I know of a horse that was bred by a backyard breeder that has won world chamionships in it's class.
That being said I know a bunch of people that breed without thinking of consequenses, but your suloution isn't realistic, or would it solve many problems...
