    So let me get this straight; you can sell the horse, but the rescue wants final approval on where the animal goes?

    Tell me, would the rescue then require that the new owner send them updates? How about them retaining the right to take back the horse if they don't like the care it's receiving at the new home? Because if that's the case, you're going to be SOL with selling this horse. I wouldn't buy any animal that had codicils attached.

    If I buy something, I expect it to be mine to do with as I please. Which is why I will never adopt a rescue horse. Too many crazy restrictions.

    I feel that I am getting an attitude that really isnít necessary. Itís not uncommon for previous owners to want to know what is happening to their animals. Correct? The only requirement is that the shelter wants to approve the home she would be going to. The care of the horse is solely upon the owner then. I have had nothing but a good experience from adopting Callie and people should be much more open to them. Iím sure some shelters have outrages restrictions and guidelines but I have not had ANY problems, as previously sated.

    My question to you would be Are you at all even interested in my horse or giving me advise? All this sounds like to me is an unpleasant critique.

    I'm not in the market, but I wish you luck. Your contract can include anything mutually agreeable. When I sold a mare in December, it included first dibs on buying her back. I agreed that I would do so no questions asked for 60 days, and they agreed to give me the option for as long as they owned the horse.

    I don't recall seeing anything in your post about how I must buy or else, so it is up to you. Good luck!

    That's all well and good, but if they're previous owners they have no right to know.

    It would be nice of a new owner to give them an update, but they're in no way obligated to give the previous owner any information. Especially since the purchaser isn't actually buying the animal from them.

    Why? If the horse truly belongs to you, then the shelter should have absolutely no say in the matter to whom you sell the animal. If you sell it, nobody else has any right to impose restrictions on it.

    I'm not giving you 'attitude', I'm merely pointing out what can turn into a big sticking point for selling the horse. People don't like attachments and codicils when they're buying something. If you were adopting the animal out, that's a whole different set of circumstances.

    They do if it was in the contract. If you buy land, it may or may not have restrictions on it - CC&Rs. If it does, those are legally binding. If the shelter requires approval of any follow-on purchasers, then the seller cannot unilaterally remove that restriction.

    In this case, the seller has made the provision clear. It is up to any buyer to decide if they wish to abide by it. If not, the seller doesn't require anyone to buy from her. Those in the market are free to contact her for more information. Those who aren't might consider letting her sell her horse in peace.

    If I were to sell her I would want to know that where she was going was a good home. The lady I bought her from is a close friend so she would also be a witness when she is sold. As a friend and as a representative of the shelter.
    When is say "approve" the new home it is what we decide is best for Callie. Not that we would check up on you and such. Unless that was in a contract which I have no intention of doing.
    If I were to sell her I would have a contract saying that I would be first notified if they wished to sell the horse. Any other circumstances would be stated then at the time of the sale.

    Sorry if there’s any confusion I don’t want to turn this into an argument.

    I'm quite well aware of land restrictions, thank you. Which is why I bought where there were none.

    Why do you seem to think I have some sort of vendetta against this seller? I most certainly don't. Just pointing out that in this era of horses glutting the market, it does more harm than good to place unnecessary restrictions on an animal she's trying to sell.

    I know someone who adopted a horse from TRF (Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation). She had the horse for 2 years, and he just didn't work out for her. Instead of giving the horse back to TRF, she asked them if she could adopt, not sell, him to someone else. TRF's only requirement was that they approve the facility where the horse was going. In this case I saw no problems with it, because the horse was readopted, not sold.

    If you want to place restrictions on selling something, you need to be aware that you have severely limited your pool of buyers. That's the only point I was trying to make.

    Shermy, nobody's arguing, we're merely having a discussion with differences of opinion. I do wish you luck in selling your girl, but the market really is cruddy. The information in your last post clears up some confusion I had. Thank you.

    Please take this with the understanding that I really am trying to help. The mare is a tad underweight in the photos and it would be best if you could get the weight on her, retake photos and then list all the information in your 1st post again. The fact that she is on the smaller side really is not a problem for a youth or small adult. You also have the added benefit of nice breeding and her being young.

    Please consider also posting on Arabian sites in their classified sections and also on Arabian Sport Horse sites as she looks to have little knee and a lot of extension and would make a great Arabian Hunter prospect. Try Arabianbreeders.net and arabiansinsport.org

    Wishing you much luck with her sale.

    Wow,What a BEAUTIFUL horse, I know that If I bough her (sorry that I can't. :( ) I would be fine with letting the shelter take a look so they would know that the animal was well cared for... If someone were NOT to agree; I know I would never sell an animal to them, because I would feel suspicious of their intentions for the animal. She is wonderful, good luck in re home-ing her. :)
