In the last month we have sold several of our horses and helped to sell a few for others. If you have ever seen ‘Lilo and Stitch’ (the cartoon) I have said that I feel like Lilo looking for each horses ‘one true home.’
I noticed something interesting though. About three quarters of the horses sold to people who lived out of state.
When I look back over my years of dealing with horses I have also noticed that this is a trend. Even when I was young I remember people saying with awe ‘I bought him from out west’. Back then I lived in Maine so that could have been Indiana!
Have you seen this? Does it happen in other industries? Anyone have any thoughts on this.
