I wasn't sure where else to put this so I decided to put it here. I've been searching horse adds here and there looking for that one horse that I just can't resist. I've been looking at rescues and PMU sites and for the life of me I just can't figure out how they price their horses.
Take this guy for example. He's one of my top choices due to his looks (which is really all I have to go on).
PMU5135 (Gries) - Horse Details
He's a gorgeous draft cross, 6yr stallion. BUT at 6yrs old he's never been handled, he's not halter broken, he's a stallion (not keen on the stallion temperments) and they want $2,500 for him! He's got nothing exceptional in his bloodlines listed so I just can't fathom how they think he's worth $2,500?
Right now $2500 can buy a stunning, dead broke draft cross with the tack thrown in! Lol
Anyone have any ideas? I contacted the people because I am fairly interested in him but I can't imagine paying more than $700 for that horse. I wouldn't even know how they would manage to ship him to me!
