Horse Price Crash

So, lots of dead horses...

... do they sell the corpses afterwards? If the charity is short of cash to feed abandoned horses then it could make a fair bit out of hocking the horseflesh to the French.

Pretty sad really, people taking on animals that they cannot afford to care for. If I ever had a pet, I'd make sure it got a meal before I did.

Oh, just wait for it, along with offal, horsemeat will become 'trendy' in the broadsheets.

I met a lady a few weeks ago who has bought 6 international standard dressage horses in the last 6 years. She doesn't work, her husband is in the army.

Can we all say mew? :blink:

I myself am enjoying Horsepricecrash as yesterday I picked up a Stubben Scandica saddle on ebay for 300 euros - new price = 1500.

Great messages on ebay e.g., "please don't try and insult me with a low offer LIKE THE LAST PERSON as this cost me over 1000 pounds new". :lol:

Lots and lots and LOTS of high-end horse/ski stuff just not selling on ebay.

I am team manager of an equine team and we are waiting around to pick up some bargains , there are around 30 horses in our team and we compete at eventing with the cost of competing a horse at a decent level of about £10 k pa the governing body British Eventing (BE ) have not made any allowance for lower figures next year and just keep carping on about how the sport is not recession proof as a lot of people will still carry on regardless seems to be plenty of denial , presumably these people think that house prices only go up

As I said we are waiting for people to get a bit more " motivated " into achieving realistic prices for their bloodstock .I can forsee a lot of Penelopes and Philippas having to do some actual paid work next year rather than horsing around on a 5 year gap year.

BE make me laugh saying it is a sport for all and not elitist , it will be interesting to see if people still compete as many horses next year or will registrations ( therefore income ) be down. No doubt Zara will still be about in her new £300k Oakley horsebox as an example of how it is a sport for all

The only real victims of the credit crunch. Its terrible i feel bad for these animals for having such stupid owners. Its a lifetime commitment that is honoured by the honourable.

Nail on the head. Despite all the tasteless horse jokes and puns in the thread, a lot on here will agree heartily with your sentiment.

Widespread superficiality, lack of honour and commitment, short termism and general aimlessness is a big factor in the parless state the economy and housing market have got into.
