Well here is her reasoning, she bought him a year ago from a show barn and she couldn't stand the way the horses were treated and she doesn't want stretch to go into a home like that again, here is a copy of the email:
i am not up on my showing that much either. Stretch's dad is "larks trust fund". Stallion owners will start an "incentive fund", I believe the foals have to be nominated for the incentive fund when they are born. When the horse is shown on the QH circuit, the incentive fund will pay money for that horse winning. What this does is encourage owners to compete their horses and the better they do the better the stallion looks and the more they can charge for a stud fee. Because stretch is nominated in the incentive fund, he can be competed in the QH circuit shows and win money. You must have the papers to enter him in the shows, so the papers make him more valuable. But stretch hates that kind of showing, it is high stress- unlike open shows which can be more relaxed, but even that depends on the person. I felt it would be better to sell stretch at a lower price without the papers to someone who will do the fun stuff he likes such as trail and team penning. His papers can be purchased separately for an additional $1500. I do not want him to be shown on the circuit, I do not want him to be stressed and unhappy. Open shows do not require papers either.
In her next email she said I could have a copy
of his papers. If I buy him without the papers, he is 1100, but with would be 2600.
If she has his papers and he is registered to her does that make him legally hers? He will still be registered to her, and that makes me nervous, what if she takes him away? :o
