|What's this guy worth?|
And recently, while getting Scout insured I discovered that whether I knew it or not I've been adding to his value all along.
So how is all of that determined? Well, from a fair market value Scout has a lot going for him. He's big, bay and a gelding. He's just turning 6 this year and he's conformationally pretty correct and desirable. When I bought him his value was ~$5000, and now it's nearly doubled due to a couple of choices I've made along the way that have helped to increase his value.
When I started reaching out to professionals throughout owning Scout it was for two specific reasons... 1. the further his training and 2. to prepare him for me. At the end of the day, I want Scout to be much more advanced than my goals will get him to and beyond that, if life gets too hectic down the road, I want Scout's "value" to be more than just a BN event horse. If I ever decided to lease him out his value will be determined by his versatility and experience.
|Has talent, needs direction|
|With my BO, playing at being a jumper|
|And even though I want him to be an eventer, it doesn't mean he has to be a one trick pony:)|
|Maybe cow pony?|
|I just need him to be a solid partner|
But what's he worth to me?
