Okay so finally my question is... how much do you pay for a OTTB. I mean like buying wise and medical expenses(if they differ from an non OTTB). And what experience level do I need to have? Its kind of a stupid question but I want to know what experience levels people have when buying them. I know OTTB and horses are big commitments and are hard work and I totally understand that and im dedicated. And where could I find one near northern IL. Websites please??
