She's priced cheap enough to be affordable but high enough to assure a good home, which is what we are after for this girl.
My point is simply that, if they cared to actually get her a "good home," they would give her away and hold her as long as necessary to find the right people, not play the threatening auction and sell-to-the-first-person-that-comes-along card. If I actually was in need of a horse like this--and I'm not--I could get one for far less than $300. Their misplaced concern is quite honestly just misidentified greed. No horse is going to sell in three days, anyway, barring a miracle.
