Default Buying a horse-couple of questions (not sure if our relative is telling the truth)

So my cousin wants me to buy his horse.
I go over to look at it, and I think it is blind.


He tells me, " I told you it didn't look too good ! "

Horses are a waste of money. That is unless it is a show, rodeo, or race horse. Something that can return money. Other then that all they do is eat and cost you money with vet bills, and fairrer bills. So unless your going to be making money off this horse don't buy it.

Well there are only three horses I know of.

Real ones that produce manure like you.

Broncos that give you pleasure and heartache on the trail and eventually cost lots of money.

Mustang, makes heads turn, costs lots of money, and usually rusts out with in a couple years of Michigan Winter Driving.

ever perform a cost-benefit analysis on having kids? how about building a jeep? getting married?

money is only good for the exchange of goods/services, e.g. things of this world. ultimately, everything on this planet fades away, depreciates, crumbles to dust/ash. so... extrapolating it a bit further, even things that do net a postive return on investment are meaningless in the end...

I wouldn't recommend buying a blind horse. Nothing but trouble.

If you are seriously looking for a horse, let me know. My family breeds registered quarterhorses, and I can probably get you one cheap, delivered.

How much for the blind horse? It may be a good deal.. What if it just needs glasses?

I bought a Jeep that supposedly had a blown motor. Turns out the motor was fine, it didn't have a transmission.. :tonka:
