need advice for my situation
I don’t if anyone can help me, can give me some advice
My husband and I bought a baby Hannovarian stallion a year ago, it was in very good shape. I know nothing about horses, he had been dealing with horses for last 20-30 years, he did take a good care of the new baby, unfortunately he was hospitalized since November, the horse stayed in the farm near the house, the farmer just feed the horse and did the basic cleaning, my husband died 2 weeks ago, and leave me this 2 years old horse, I can’t keep this horse by myself, I talk to the lady who sold us the horse and see if she can help me to sell it, she can do that but will charge CAD$600 a month (including boarding & training) plus 20% fees of the selling price, she gave me 2 options: quick sale - will take about 1 month to give the minimum training and put on some weight, and lower selling price (she estimate at $3k-4.5k), or selling at top price (estimate at $3.5k-6k), that will take 2 months for more training, preparation…….
I don’t know which one is better, quick sales – just to get rid of it even losing money, or take the risk for the top price, hoping I can break even, my concern is 2 months from now will be mid-July, and if I can’t sell it before winter, probably I have to wait for next year, you know the winter in Canada……I don’t even know the selling price she told me is realistic or not.
Thank you very much in advance for all your comments
