I did not imply whatsoever that cheap horses end up in bad homes. My point was that unbroken youngsters at auction are NOT likely to find a good home. There are wonderful people who manage to save a few, but the grim reality is that due to the economy, most youngsters at auction do NOT end up in good places. And by that, I mean usually a slaughter house, not a neglectful or abusive home.

IMO I think its sad slaughter houses are closed in the US because it just means more horses are going to be abused and neglected I do belive how it was done should have been changed but not quit Also it hurt the horse market that was already hurting. But I think you have a BEAUTIFUL mare I am in arkansas and I would give you 900 for her if I was buying another one right now : ) But if you would regret selling her don't do it because I sold one of mine awhile back and I miss him very much even though I know he went to a good home.
