Sometimes the best horses are the ones that don't cost alot. Like 5,000. True they may not have the best confo ever. But for most ppl a cheaper horse is best. Most ppl don't want to show. As it so expensive to show. I would love to get my own QH and show in the district but with a baby on the way its already difficult.
I understand what is being said bout what would you take care more? Something that cost $200 or something that costs $30,000. I would take care of both. If its cars. I would drive the cheaper one throughout the week and drive the more expensive one on weekends or special occasions. But that's speaking of cars not horses. Horses you have to feed everyday. Take care. Cars you just put gas in them and with a lil mechanical work and your set.

Apparently so.

Teenagers don't like to be told they don't know everything, or that their worldview might be skewed because of their lack of life experience.

The good thing is that she'll most likely grow out of it. I know I did.

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...

THAT'S THE PROBLEM! SLAUGHTER HOUSES AREN'T CLOSELY REGULATED AND NEVER WILL BE! I completely disagree! It's not necassary! And ever thought about how many horses going to slaughter are stolen? Alot of cases the horses are stolen. And don't give me the captive bolt crap that stuns them anyway. Have you seen a real video of it? They get popped in the head by the bolt more that ONCE! To get 'stunned' If you can't afford to euthanize a horse get someone who will shoot it for you for christ sakes! Shooting it is a whole lot quicker than that captive bolt I can assure that. Don't say slaughter is necassary until you put yourself in front of that captive bolt, people. People overpopulate the planet! Why not slaughter humans! Oh wait cause that's unethical, oh yeah Horse slaughter is so much more ethical huh. Just cause I think horse slaughter is unecassary doesn't mean I'm not in reality. Reality is humans are evil. And for the wild horses, I read where they are putting cougars around to reduce the population, A cougar kill is much more necassary than slaughter because slaughter the fright lasts for the days they are enduring to get there, when a cougar chases them it's split decision and adrenaline and endorphines kick in so the horse won't feel the pain as much. Horses are slaughtered because what? There a delicacy to Europe and such places? Sounds pricy. If a horse get's slaughtered why not spread it to third world countries? Cause they are pricy. That's one thing America did do right was ban horse meat.
