    Selling Foal Questions

    So I bred my mare with the intent of keeping her foal (with the help of my parents) but because we're remodeling the house and I'm going to Pre-Vet school it just isn't the right time for having a foal since I won't have the proper time to work with her or the funds I need.

    My question is, is it possible to have a contract that if the new owners must sell her that I will be notified first so I could potentially buy her back. I'm not sure how it would work because obviously the price of her will rise with training so I wouldn't be able to buy her back for the price I sold her unless noted in the contract but that would cause the new owner to lose money.

    I know there are a lot of experienced horse men/women out there. Anyone have any thoughts on what I should do.

    Thank you

    You can have a contract that states you have the first right of refusal if they decide to sell the foal later, but you can't guarantee that they will actually follow through and the contract isn't likely to stand up in court. Once the foal is gone, you have no control over it at all.

    Worth repeating.....Why you want to think VERY carefully before you breed your keeper foal.

    Tessa is right, once they have gone, they are gone, sure you can add a buy back clause, but you can't enforce it.

    Any time you choose to sell, you have no say in where the horse goes or what is done with them. The sad truth in the horse world is that nearly everyone is out to make a buck, once that foal leaves your property it could be sold a dozen times. The only way to make sure you will always know where the foal is and that she is treated fairly is to keep her! Good luck in your decision, and if you decide to sell.. I hope you find a honest buyer who truely cares about the well-being of the horse! :)
