Making the best possible sale ad
I'm going to list out everything I know on making the best ad I can, so if I've forgotten anything or if you have any other advice, let me know :)
1.) Details to include in ad: breed, age, sex, height, training level - good and bad, location, price, veterinary/farrier status (shots utd, barefoot, etc)
2.) Photos: well-groomed a must, neutral background, level surface, shots of left, right, back, and front, take from low angle like Conformation Forum said, action shots?, do not use phone to take these
3.) Videos: walk, trot, canter, going left and right, keep other horses out of frame, use YouTube so everyone can view easily, again do not use phone for this
4.) Where to list: HorseForum, Facebook, HorseClicks?

I have two horses I'm wanting to sell. One was actually pending sale, but it fell through because of issues with the prospective boarding facility, blah blah blah, not important.
Both need work, but they're good horses with a lot of potential - one as a likely eventer or jumper, the other was a child's 4H pony and could be again.
I'm more concerned about getting them into good homes than I am with making a fortune, but the "free to good home" thing can be a slippery slope.
Is something like this appropriate -> "$500, negotiable to good home"?
Also, what's the right way to say that I don't want to go pay for a Coggins/health certificate, have the horse sell 31 days later, and have to go get another one done because the original expired?
I know some states accept a 6 month or 12 month Coggins/health certificate, but a lot are only 30 days. Is that my issue or the buyers issue?
I think that's all my questions.
