Okay, here's the deal...
I have an Arab that I do not want. I want a nice QH, or ANYTHING more level headed that this guy. (I love him to death, I just haven't been having fun anymore!) The problem is that technically, he belongs to both my mother and I. I'm a college student and cannot afford a horse on my own. So we compromised and decided it would be best to lease him out.
He'll be 8 in may. Here's a video link:
Now, technically it's supposed to be a "free lease". But what all does a "free lease" entail? Do they pay for his vet bills, farrier bills, board, etc? If I charged a monthly fee and let him go off farm, would I pay for anything? Are the leasers responsible for all of his medical care? Would I still have say in whether or not he gets certain medical treatments?
And last but not lease. Does anyone have any advice on how to convince my mother to SELL him? She is too "terribly attached to him to let him go."
ANY advice would help! Thank!
