    Contacting the buyers of horses you sold

    When I gave my mini away in late March/early April the lady I gave him to promised me she'd send pictures of him during the summer, but she never did. I have her email, and I've thought about contacting her but than I have second thoughts... I don't want to sound annoying or anything. I'm just curious about how well he's doing, and I was really looking forward to seeing the pictures. I know some people who do it, but I don't know... Would you find it weird if one of your horse's old owners called/emailed you?

    They always say they will contact you and most of the time they don't. E-mail her. What is the worst that can happen?

    I emailed and asked about the pony I sold over summer, she was happy to tell me how he was doing. The good and the bad. Wrote out a super long email even lol

    I actually "friended" my horse's previous owners on Facebook. I regularly post pictures of him and write updates about things I've done with him. I like that - it allows them to see as much or as little as they choose.

    E-mail her. The worst she can do is ignore it.

    If they are anything like me they might feel like they would be bothering you, so I say send them an email :)

    I friended Sammy's previous owner and facebook and she's trying her hardest to find time in her schedule to come out and see his progression. She wasn't one of his past abusive or neglectful owners so I have no problem with her seeing him. She's just so busy!

    I think as long as you don't harrasses them if you emailed her and she didnt reply try once more then leave it. Maybe she just wants to keep him to herself etc and thinks you may want to come see him etc or your checking up on him.
    Also my horses old owner really really annoys me wanting to see her, ride her, visit her like she still has something to do with her soo I igniore her requests as its my horse now I don't want someone coming down to my horse and thinking they did better etc once you sell the horse you have no rights to them its purely owners dicretion

    I see nothing wrong with sending a short, polite email along the lines of; I was just thinking about Dobbin and thought I would send you a note. How is Dobbin doing? I hope well.

    If they respond, great. If they do not respond assume they prefer to not have contact from you.

    I completely agree with MaggiStar, it is their horse now.

    I don't find it weird at all. I was asked by previous owner too in past and in fact I LOVE sharing their pics - how they grow, ride, etc. If it's a loving owner he/she is always proud of the horse and willing to share. So far I haven't seen exceptions.
