Selling... what to do?
Okay, so I put my gelding Wrangler up for sale about 2 weeks ago, about 10 mins after putting him up, I got my first reply, then second, and third...
So far I have gotten over 10 replies on him. One lady, who was the second one to reply to my ad, is REALLY interested in buying him. She says she wants him, and we have been talking, and she wants to come down and see him... and asked me to consider this a 'sale pending'....
So I edited my ads to *Sale Pending*. She, however, has not given me a date that she wants to come down, or anything, she said she will bring a horse trailer with her (she is 4.5 hours away) but still hasn't given me even a rough idea when she may be able to make it down here. She is a nice lady and I think Wrangler would be good for her... but now here is where I get stuck...
A couple days ago, another girl emailed me. She was younger, and rides english. She says she would like to come down ASAP to ride him and check him out, but I told her the sale was pending with another lady, and that I would get back to her if she did not buy...
This girl emailed me again today, and was wondering if the lady had bought my horse yet. This is how I could tell that she also REALLY wants him.
I emailed her back and said that, if by the weekend she does not show up, I will get back to her.
Now, what should I do? Should I message back the first lady and tell her I have someone else interested, that will get here sooner, and let the second girl come try him first, or should I wait until I hear back from the first lady, even if it takes her awhile?
I am not in a hurry to sell Wrangler. It takes however long it takes. I just want him to go to a good home, where he will enjoy what he does. This is also my first time selling a horse, so I am new to this. And to be honest, I do think, by talking to both of them, the first lady sounds like she would be best with him, compared to the other girl.
Please, any suggestions?
