I wondered that myself at first, but then thought of these reasons. I know there are some that have pretty good bloodlines and that may be one of the reasons. I think when the word got out about pmu horse and there fate, people started breeding them better so that they would have a better chance staying out of the slaughter houses. I know most of them don't have great bloodlines, but some of them do. The other reason may be because of the care they put into them and I know some of their prices include shipping up to 2000 miles. Hey you never know, maybe you could offer them something and they may take it on a horse that has been in foster for a while.
