Would you sell your horse for...


If you have more than one horse then go with which horse you had first!

I love my horses but I am a realist. They could actually take all of them for that price.

I once knew someone that turned down 80,000 for their show horse. He foundered the next month and was never rideable again.

I could turn down 100k and the horse would be dead the next day. Just the way my luck goes.

$100000 is lots of money. Most of people don't have horses nearly close in price, so asking if I'd sell my cheap one or not is a moot point, because I'm realistic and know I'll NEVER be offered such a price for either of my mares.

However those people who can afford pricey horses more often than not look at it as a business (which is very understandable, because expensive show horses require lots of investment into training, boarding, tack, etc.). So I can perfectly see when someone sells $80K horse for $100K to buy a different one with better potential.

P.S. I'm not talking about situation when horse is on market and someone is crazy enough to offer a crazy price. So Duffy, if someone offers you $100K don't turn it down! :)

It's sad to say, but I probably would..

It's not that I don't love my horse, it just would be such a good thing for my family.

The majority of the gang, in a heartbeat. The one I've had the longest, not a chance. He was born here on the farm and has been in my life for 30 of my 32 years. My grandfather was offered a similar amount for him when he was much, much younger and turned it down. I'm glad he did, Hondo is my guy and won't ever leave this farm.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Everything is for sale at the right price. If someone offered me $100,000 for any of my horses, they could have 'em. Then I'd take the money, pay off my mortgage, and buy a couple more horses.
