How much would you pay for a broodmare?
All that "breed for the best" etc. questions have made me thinking...
What is your breaking point when it comes to the price you would pay for a broodmare?
(edited to be more precise and to focus more on the question I wanted answers for... let's see if it works better now):
If you have NO intent of showing the mare in upper levels (or lower...), and you buy solely for breeding purposes, and unless you are the kind of person who has so much money you just don't know what to do with it... (if it's your case, gimme a call I have PLENTY of ideas :lol:)... What would be the absolute maximum you would be willing to pay, for the PERFECT mare?
20k? 50k? 100k? More? How much more before you start looking for one of her young daughters instead?
Let's assume for the purpose here that such perfect mare (proven producer, not too old, right size, excellent mareline, popular bloodlines and impeccable manners, great confo, movement and over fence scores) IS available for you to purchase.
