Something for Nothing and Nothing for Something...
A. The Market sucksI can Haz for $200.00???----------------------->
You can Haz for $40,000---------------------->
B. Too many grade, untrained, broken down horsesC. No money to support said horses.
So, a lot of people as you can see by your local craigslist or dreamhorse ad, are in desperate need to rid themselves of their horses. Horses that either, they bred, bought cuz it's perty, or oh my holy hell who knows!! So then WHY is it that is these people are desperate to rid themselves of these" burdens" are they so retarded??? Here's an example: http://www.dreamhorse.com/show_horse.php?form_horse_id=1334243
OK, now, in who's F-ing lifetime would pay 4K for this horse... mmmmm not me. As a matter of fact I feel as though my intelligence has been insulted... BOYS AND GIRLS! DO NOT spend all of this money on a horse that is so far from worth it. It's not reg. not 100% trained well, OK, 4K worth of training and it's 13 yrs old!
It's funny because a lot of people contact me for horses. "Do you have a perfect, kid-safe pretty, easy keeper, that will win all the time?? Oh and I'd like to buy that for $800" I'm sorry wha...?
What was that? You're an idiot? Oh OK I'm glad we understand each other now. It always goes BOTH ways!! Either people have a horse that is ugly, lame, broodmare only, grade, old, blah blah, that they need 80 bazillion dollars for, because he's sooooooooooo worth it. OR you have some LOOKING for EVERYTHING in a horse and want to pay, mmmmm 50 bucks...
You know who can be the biggest culprits out all of them?? Trainers! HA! It's true. Trainers, think they are all knowing and all wonderful that they can turn horse poop into diamonds!! WOW!! I"d love to meet that person. I've got A LOT of crap and I could use some damn diamonds! You never hear anyone say "you're full of Diamonds." Now do you? Nope it's ALWAYS, "YOU are full of SHIT!" And for good justifiable reasons...
People ALWAYS want SOMETHING for NOTHING! Amazing, immaculate horse = $50 and of course NOTHING for SOMETHING crappy, horse non broke, bad conformation = $10,000!
Buyer AND seller beware! KNOW your market. Google names and farms, call your vet, farrier, friend, anyone NON-biased to the horse you're looking at. Consider age, soundness, feet, what the horse has done. A 20 yr old horse who spent 10 yrs on the track and 8 doing Grand Prix Jumping is NOT going to BODE well for you!!! Oh and of course Back yard breeders! STOP IT YOU ASS HATS!!! We have ENOUGH to choose from. THANKS!
