That's what I told her and she said, "I shouldn't have to pay anything for her since I raised her and you only bought her as a money making scheme."
Ugh. Really. Then why did I spent over 2,000 on this horse and am selling her for 500????

OP - I just want to say I am sorry if I have been coming across rudely to you. It has struck me that I have been responding less than at my best in your threads and I would just like to apologize for that.

when statements like that affect your ability to do business, they have crossed the line into illegal actions, I would suit for slander in small claims court.

I actually had to go back and look at some of my threads to see what you were talking about! Haha, no worries! You have been very helpful with straight forward information!

I'd be more pissed about the ad agency/newspaper who let that ad be posted under yours.....very unethical.

Even if you turn around and sold her for 10,000 she can't say anything. Im sure that does happen..., but she wanted $200.00 and she got it !
Some people just don't jive with there new horse, and vise versa, so why keep something that isn't suited for you. If she wants her back tell her $500, end of story.

I wouldnt even bother with her, just get that ad taken down. Time is worth money. You've put time and money into her to make her a better horse, of course she's worth more now. That's not even a big jump either. Last week I saw a filly I sold last year for sale from the person I sold her too for 1,500 more that what I sold her for and according to the ad the only thing she does more now is trot the barrels, they were also using my sale ad photo (that kinda peeved me). But everybody has their own prices, and once it's sold you have no control of what they do with that horse or if selling what they sell them for.

How true spotted! My sister bought a jumper for $1 from a friend because it was lame and the owner didn't want to deal with it. My sister turned around and put corrective shoeing on the horse, then sold it for $10,000! There were no hard feelings on either party. I could use a deal like that.

I will say, since you are wanting to sell her - I would be working even harder towards correcting some of the worst of her habits that you were posting about recently. Every issue you can eliminate will make her that much more sellable and help increase your footing in asking a reasonable price for her. I know that sometimes selling a problem horse seems like a great way not to have to deal with the problems, but I'd rather put the time and effort in for as long as I have the horse to help make the horse that much more marketable.
