    I'm just guessing but I think the mid level barns (around here at least) may have the higher carrying costs but can't charge as much due to lack of amenities.

    Adding to that is the huge increase...

    Bayhawk, you are not doing any favors for promoting yourself or your breed.

    We all have breeds that appeal to us more than others. Slamming someone else's breed of preference is just poor form.
