My friend's wife trains horses/ponies for a living, the end result is an increase in value over time.
She thinks she has hit the limit of the value the pony is going to get, any my friend has now found new employment, so now it's on to new opportunities.
I will likely own another horse in the future, but it will be for me, and not an investment. I used to ride when i was growing up, and occasionally end up on horses now. My girlfrined rides in amature classes now and has her own horse as well.
I'm surrounded by animals (though none are mine, i just pretend they are and look after them all.)
Was just at the barn tonight with the girlfriend, and snapped a few pictures.
her horse is a monster at 17.5 hands.
