Needless to say, for a person selling a horse, the market is tough. But those of us looking to buy, it isn't all that bad.
I went out to a farm yesterday that had 27 horses, not all for sale, but most. He had there a nice 2yr old PerchxQH cross for 400, another older bred paint mare for 500 ... This man's horses never went over 500 in price.
I have to wait until July to start buying, but I am wondering, do any of you seasoned horsepeople see any end in sight to these low horse prices? I went with my trainer yesterday out to this farm, and we got to talking about my waiting until summer to buy, and she made the comment "You can wait, but you'll pay more next summer, why buy something for thousands of dollars when you can get it now for only hundreds?"
I know no one can predict what the prices will do, but just curious to get someone else's point of view on the topic.
