Recognize the words to the song from the 1960's television show, Mr. Ed? 

That's also part of the title of an article by the research team at Tierra Grande magazine, the flagship periodical of the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University.  I read every edition cover to cover...it's a great source of Texas related real estate information for both professionals and consumers.

Appaloosa Horse with Saddle

 

The complete title of the article is: 

A Horse is a Horse, of Course, of Course. . . Unless it Predicts Land Prices

It's an interesting anaylsis of Texas land prices compared to thoroughbred yearling sale prices. 

 Maybe a stretch, but here in Texas we take both our land and our horses very seriously!

Although the article was originally published in 2010 is gives some interesting historical background that is also relevant in today's Texas real estate market.

Happy Trails to you and yours (that's my horse Sky in the photo in 2010...isn't he handsome...and still kicking up his heels in 2016).

Nice looking horse.

I rode a horse one time - it was fun until he started bolting for the barn and I had trouble staying on.  The saddle was loose, lucky I didn't end up under him.

I did stay on, but my thighs were bruised and sore!!

 Virginia Hepp  Sorry to hear you had a bad horse time.  I used to teach riding and train horses for a living and understand how horrible some experiences can be.  Hope your bruises healed.  I still get fresh ones weekly.    Real estate is a WHOLE lot easier than horses!!!
