Instead of actually asking as to why the gelding is being offered without papers people pointed fingers of it being "fishy" or "crooked." When in actuality the papers were lost, we never got around to transferring them. Hence being offered without papers (it's not like the option wasn't available) because most people who've been interested aren't looking at him for AQHA point shows. Most have been looking for a trail horse, small show prospect etc.

I do appreciate everyone who pointed out the rules etc. I hadn't known about any of them. These are the first horses I've ever tried to sell. So thank you WSArabians & Saddlebag. I just wasn't sure how to list him & now I know. Which is really all ANYONE had to say instead of attacking me. Whether that was the intent or not, that angry post was in result from that.

Corporal, I'm not in Cook County so wouldn't have any idea what goes on in there. There are probably about 5 barns within a 15 mile radius, most of which are filled by me. The horse business isn't great around here but it's obviously not hurting. People are just far more pickier on what they buy. And I wasn't blaming ANYONE for not being interested in the prices. You don't like the prices? Don't buy 'em. I have NO problem selling those horses for less to go to a good home. That's ALL I want to do. Yet everyone here seems to think I'm some freakin' crook. I've owned both those **** horses for 7yrs+ so I think if I was just looking to make a quick buck off them I wouldn't have held onto them for so long. Hell, I would give them away to the right home. For me it's not about the money & never has been. I made a rookie mistake with the papers thing & I can totally admit that.

For future reference, if your selling a horse as papered, you should have the papers with you.

Even if the prospective owners now aren't looking for lineage etc, who's to say that down the line they may need to sell and the new prospective owner may want papers.

Good luck though in selling them.

*Insert something witty*

I've let everyone know who's interested in him the situation as to why he's selling without them. I'm not shady person out to deceive people (not saying you were hinting at that). Every perspective person gets told the same thing. If they want his papers I will give them the copy my dad made years ago & they can get it switched. It was never a big deal for me so I never bothered with it, he's a gelding & I never wanted to do breed shows.
