I've been restraining myself to try and say nothing about the filly's unregistered mother being pregnant again, with probably the same unregistered sire's baby.
Because making more grade horses is such a great idea.
It is a shame. If you read in the breeding section I got this mare and foal as a rescue project. The previous owner didnt even know when she had been bred. And no it isnt the same sire. They had the little dam in with another arab stallion. They are both being taken excellent care of now. I havent the foggiest notion as to why she is bred to be honest....think it is a real shame.
I suppose it also does depend on your area. I have seen MANY weanlings same as her going for much higher. I know someone that sold an unreg. Grade Colt for $700 a couple months ago....
Hmmmm...well...i was just curious. But now I know why curiosity killed the cat
At this point I will leave her adoption fee blank and work it out with her new home as needed. I am not worried about what I sell her for or trying to make money. That wasnt the point of this thread. I don't care what she sell for. I was asking what an average person would say... something between the $25 I can buy a halter for and the $400 the pony breeder says. Sigh....obviously not an easy answer. When I bought her for $200 I was happy with buying such a cutie.
Thanks again...didnt expect so much response
