I am looking for my next horse to bring along. I have bred, broke , competed and retired multiple horses. I just don’t have the heart to breed anymore but would love to bring up another baby I have the facility and knowledge to buy a baby and wait. Just wondering what a nice amateur friendly with nice gaits. (does not need to be spectacular) weanling go for? I do a little dressage, eventing and trail riding.
I would say that I can’t put one on the ground for under $8500 if full pkg. 2 yrs of mare care, stud fee and vettings/trip chgs, immunizations, farrier, registration/approvals/travel, USEF fee, and not including plenty of etc, value of mare, and my time and facility. Most better breeders would charge 10,500+
Thank you for your reply! Sounds very resonable.
You can edit your title. I thought Armature was a stallion name. Sounds like one.
Darn auto correct!! Thanks
Sorry for the delay in correcting the title. on my cell phone with spotty connection! Thanks for the correct spelling!
There are quite a few in the $10-$12k range, and you’ll have a lot more options if you go up to $15k.
I kinda want to use that as a name now
I just bought one, good to great lines on the sire’s side and great lines on the dam’s (in a breed I am unfamiliar with so basing this on people who know and have told me). Slightly different breeding than the average WB (WB x Appendix) but she is lovely and a good mover, and I anticipate will be a very nice adult horse. So they can be found, just maybe in different parts of the country. I would not have been able to purchase the same weaning in my state for less than $10k, and her price plus transport and PPE is less than that.
