I am having troubles selling my horse. Any suggestions?
Without the crappy economy being the obvious reason, why am I having such a hard time selling my horse??
Ive had him for sale for about a month on a few websites and he is advertised in local tack stores. Im being very honest with people when it comes to his issues because I don't want any one to get the surprise that I did when he came home. Im getting lots of interest in him but im finding that im getting two different kind of people looking. I only have him listed for $1000 (is this to much or to little??) but also in my add I said im willing to go lower if he was to go to the right home. Heck, im ready to give him away for free to the right person.
So the first kind of person that is contacting me is the younger 4H girls that think he is pretty and see that he is only $1000 and think they can train him themselves. When I ask them for their experience with horse training then say "none" so I reply with "this horse is not for you unless you can either train him yourself or have the resources to send him to a trainer."
Then the second is the kind of person that they sound great. Have the resources to either train him themselves or send him to a trainer but then when I tell them about every single one of his issues because im being honest they go "o wow, no thanks!"
So what do I do?
Do I lie and say he is the BEST horse in the world?? (obviously not) or do I lower his price?? Please give me suggestions on what my next step forward should be...
