 Stud fee was $1500, cost $550 to have her AI'd. What is a good price for a foal in utero? Sire is young but very popular. He won $25k Futurities and slot races. Asking as the seller lol.

I don't get out of bed for $5k

but if $5k works for you then I guess it's a good price

The price you have listed is fair, IMO (if it’s the one you have listed). I’m assuming you’ve covered all your bases, but I would make sure the price you’ve chosen is enough to cover all expenses for the foal until it’s weaned, since you’ll be raising it up to that point, plus have enough left over for a possible profit.

Somewhere between 2-3x Stud Fee. If the stud is marked at $1,500 for winning that much money that is what the owners feel they can get.
If they feel they can get more; trust me, they will raise that stud fee.

Anything you incur after the baby/foal is born; you can try to get, but don’t always get depending on the stud or circumstances.

But typically, 2-3x Stud Fee depending on the baby... is how I judge a foal/weanling.

 that's what I thought based on the stud fee. We pasture foal so we eliminate a lot of cost vs having them in stalls fed hay and on shavings. I have a serious buyer that emailed within 15 minutes of the ad going up. I have seen a yearling for $7500 so I figured my price was fair enough.

That’s what I mean if the stud ran out that much money and continues to do well in the pen or produces it in his foals.

You could very well be onto something early in that stud’s career and get more. I’ve had that happen before by buying yearlings or early 2YOs.

Trust your ‘gut’ and enjoy.
