He is one gorgeous boy. I think he could be worth quite a lot to someone, though personally I would never buy a horse for more than $15k. I'd rather buy a nice green horse, or even baby, for cheaper and train them up myself ;] I'm also not into the hunter or AQHA world though. I don't think turning down those offers was ridiculous. If it wasn't the right time, it wasn't the right time. Besides, if you were offered that then, imagine how much you could be offered when he has even more training on him. Right now I am horseless, but I wouldn't have sold my old guy if I had been offered $100,000 for him. I was too emotionally attached, and I would have felt incredible shallow for the rest of my life for giving him up that easily.
