I am guilty too of taking advantage in the market to buy good quality brood stock.
Hopefully when the market rebounds. The two of us will be sitting pretty.
That is a nice mare and great addition to your herd. Good luck. Shalom
Well-- this one I did not plan on getting. Sad series of events brought her to me. My trainer's lifelong friend- also a trainer and breeder has been fighting cancer for 2 years- and is now terminal, and instead of selling them to unknowns- wanted her placed with good people who would use her and treat her well. My trainer took a few horses as well. I send her updates and pics and she is ecstatic that she'll be bred to Dream.
But in every other case-- it has been somewhat serendipitous; these opportunities just seemed to have fallen in my lap, mostly as a result of friendships with other breeders. For instance-- just bought down another lovely mare from up North.. I have though, known that collecting my stock in these times will benefit me later as the market will rebound as it always does, and I can wait..
I wish I could keep the prices high single-handedly..lol
Yes-- we think much alike. Thanks for the compliment about Khassie!
