I'm pretty sure I made a huge mistake not making a contract. - Page 3 - The Horse Forum

Flyin, if it's any consolation, it's unlikely she'll get $7,000 for him. It's a buyers market right now, and she'll be lucky to get $1,000.

I do feel badly for you, but as you said, the horse is no longer yours and his current owner may do with him as she wishes.

What you did was a good thing, and nothing can tarnish that.

Congrats on your upcoming nuptials.

Yes your right. I went back and took away the dollar amount from my post becuase I realized she uses this forum also... I don't want to create issues... so this is really all just water under the bridge. I just hope someone else can learn from all this!

I wanted to offer her $3000 but I don't think she would consider that a "reasonable offer". I wont waste her time with it. Hehe

Honestly, I would call her if it were me. You did her a HUGE favor by giving her a show horse for that price, and I know if anyone did that for me I would willingly be forever in their debt. In any case, it can't hurt to call her up and offer to buy the horse back for < 3k.

This is a terrible situation, but really has given me insight on ALWAYS having a contract, even if the buyers/sellers are friendly and honest, because sometimes things happen that are out of their control, even if they do want to do the right thing.

I guess your right too... I can always offer her the $3000 and if she doesn't take it no harm done.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure she put a lot of work into him too... he was not show pen ready when I sold him but he was being ridden walk jog and was pretty unflappable for a then 3 year old.

Ugh I just noticed this thread was started in Dec 2010 so really I sold the horse 9 months ago.

I would definitely offer her the $3000..... It sucks that she bought the horse from you for $100 and turns around 9 months later wanting to sell it for that much! I had something similar happen in a trade. The horse was an ex-cattle horse that was just a bit much for me. I traded the horse for a supposedly really well broke trail horse, that dumped me every time the wind blew wrong. A few months later I saw the other horse for sale on craigslist. The lady said that she wanted the horse for herself and made it sound like she wasn't going to sell him.

100% Anti-Slaughter and PROUD of it!

Well I put my offer in, we can only wait and see.

I don't know why she is selling him, so please no one jump to conclusions that she just wanted to make a profit.

Perhaps somthing happened and she can no longer keep him, maybe she was ambarassed to tell me, or thought I did not want him back... who knows.

Like I said, its all wait and see now... I just hope she gets back to me either way... I'm looking for another horse anyway but I sure would love to have this one back!
I will never sell another horse again that's for sure!

I would have probably had another person go buy the horse back as my 'agent'.
Imagine her surprise after the deal
Hopefully you will get YOUR horse back.

Sadly, again I find myself saying this,..., "No good deed goes unpunished".
I truly hope you get YOUR horse back FSL.

Good luck, and keep us posted

Yeah, I'm not counting on anything though... In my experience the only person that does anything 'just to be nice' or 'becuase they really deserve it' is me.
