Prices range from around $800 – $1200 for a gelded male with no breeding potential to many thousands of dollars for top quality breeding males and females. Females can be worth anything from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands depending on their age, quality and breeding history. The females are valued because of their ability to produce crias, which can be sold providing very good returns on the initial investment. Top quality males with good offspring have a high value as breeding animals also – they can command high incomes for their owners in stud service fees.
