DRAMA with selling my horse

I have "sort of" decided to sell my paint mare. She has caused a lot of problems with my horses and kicked my horse in the eye last night:/ She is really small, and for rodeo I need something bigger anyway.

I live in a SMALL town, and put an add for her on a local classified website. Her previous owner saw the add, called me and said they wanted me to DONATE the horse back to them and that I was overpricing her and they were going to post an add below mine claiming I am scamming people.

I bought the pony for $200 dollars from a 50x50 dirt lot... I fed her, shod her, wormed her and had her teeth done put her into training. The previous owners never had her feet done and never vetted her. She is now an AWESOMELY trained pony that would make a little girl a great first horse. I'm only selling her for $500!

I looked tonight and there is an add below mine that claims "the tri colored paint for sale is worthless! Don't buy!!"

I mean, wow, really???

Sorry, I just wanted to vent and say how aggravating that is......

That...I really don't know what to say to that. It sucks.

If I was in your situation I'd probably be a little jackass and say something like, "Maybe before I bought her from YOU she was worthless, but with all the time, money, effort, and care I put into her she's worth something."

Please don't do that. I just like to ruffle the feathers of people who try to get me worked up.

That's outrageous! I guess you'll have to advertise in other locations, and you can always post something to counter her's, such as "Come and see for yourself . YOu won't be disappointed"

As hard as it might be - don't engage in a fighting way with the person in question, you can certainly counter false assertions on their part, but don't resort to stooping to whatever level they opt to go to. Remaining above it and staying on task with what you are doing (selling the horse) will go a long way in helping them make themselves look like a fool.

Well, it is but I bought her for him and he knows nothin about them so... It's one of those deals. He agreed to selling her though!

We might not, we are just feeling out the market.

Put an ad on dreamhorse with a video showing her stuff! Or put a link to a video in your present ad so they can see for themselves.
