Dead Serious, When I first got her (Only paid $1,500. lady was a idiot) with in probably the first six months she was assesed at about $100k - $150k. She's top mare for the breed and Breed Ambassador for the Association, has tons of training in many different disciplins, championships, has many World Champions in her predigree. She's an EXTREAMLY rare breed , less than 100 in United States, less than about 200-300 world wide. Also has three international TV series contracts for upcoming series, Movie Contracts and Printwork Contracts, Endorcements etc. I was told that was a "Conservative Estimate". Sunny isn't just a "Gaited Pony".
That kind of price isn't unheard of at all really, I know of many Freisian Stallions that sell for about $200k - $250k and there is WAY more of them, thousends... My friend Jake has a American Saddlebred Stallion that's retired now,but at his top assessment was valued at about $750k .
While we're in the world of talking about Racing Breeds, There are Througbreds that just because of shear luck alone (all forms of gambling are) have been valued at or around $1-million dollars. Just because they won "big races" with the big pay-outs. But anyone that knows anything about racing knows that's something that a horse can't do "consistantly" is win races. The odds are there, and how many Throughbreds are in exsistance? Talk about "Dime a Dozen". I see people on Craigs List all the time that can't even give those overly indiscriminately bred animals away.
Speaking of Throughbreds, I know of many that were sold at well over $20million I think toping out so far from what I've read etc at about $69 Million.
