    He's very cute!

    Plus if you figure purchase price divided by years of ownership, you really got a great deal!

    True! And I still have my 39 year old pony we got for $150 and I've had her 25 years. However.....this guy Sir was overdosed on bute as a 7 year old. Shortly after the hunter pictures and before the jumper picture. That cost my over 4,000 when he was in the ICU for 9 days as he received 21 grams in one day by a friend that was "helping me" by giving him his SMZ tabs. He's amazing. My daughter only four, rode him in a show last weekend. We went to a fun show that had barrels, poles, etc, and her pony was being naughty so she took him in Keyhole and he walked up turned around and walked back. Worth his weight in GOLD and some!

    Wow! You really have a good track record for getting your money's worth!

    And you can't count the vet bills- they totally skew the math.

    Plus you could have had the same vet bill on a horse that cost much more in the first place.

    Well, it's not as if he needed to improve much!
