Advanced Engineering Economics
The purpose of this economic analysis project is to determine the profitability of a horse breeding business. The project specifically considers breeding the Paint variety of horse. The finest Paint horses are known for their striking brown/white or black/white colors. The objective is to breed horses for color, since the horses with the most brilliant colors are obtain the highest sales prices. This type of business would cater to the Western Pleasure horse enthusiast. The typical customer would use the horses for either pleasure riding, showing, 4-H, or a combination of the three. This analysis is of use to the prospective horse breeder. It is assumed they already have land as a part of their primary residence and an interest in horses. This is also assumed to be a part time undertaking.
