Selling your Horse - What do you include?

This is just general chit-chat.

I've recently sold four of my horses this past spring.

Each one went to their new owner with:

1. A folder with all medical information in it, papers, transfers, extended pedigree and a farrier/wormer rotation sheet for the time I owned them. The paperwork also indicated they had recently been trimmed and wormed.

2. Halter and matching lead.

3. Colour coded grooming bucket (matches the halter) with all their personal grooming tools in it (they are colour coded as well).

Many of the new owners were totally surprized they got so much with the purchase price. I figured these things belonged to the horse and should go with them, especially brushes. I don't use one horse's brushes on another.

A couple of people told me they never even got a halter with their horse the last time they bought one.

Ah well, that's just the way I am. What do you include when you sell your horse?

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

All of the necessary paperwork, halter & lead rope.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

... and a handshake.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Wow, you're really generous. I could use some more brushes. Let me know when you're selling again, lol!

I gave them all the paperwork, vet records, worming records, hoofcare records, trainer's contact info, farrier's contact info, and delivered him 60 miles away.

I use Paddock Pro for record keeping and it has a nice feature called Travel Papers, I fill out the needed info on the form and print it off to give to the new owner. http://dreamcatcher.aluapaddockpro.c...cId=3&cid=6194, here's a link.

If I had actually sold this mare, I'd fill in all her vaccination info, deworming info and any health issues or quirks she migt have during foaling.

I also give a halter, lead rope, any toys specifically for that horse and their blanket or sheet.

As a buyer, I expected nothing but paperwork. I got 2 heavy winter blankets, a saddle, bridle, breastcollar and saddle pad, a bit, a hackamore, a halter and lead, a bag of grain and the requisite paperwork. I feel like I got a pretty good deal. To be honest, if I sold him I probably wouldn't include as much as I got when I bought him... his halter and lead, maybe his blankets.

The horse I sold came with: the horse, his paperwork (vet, teeth, farrier, etc), his Arabian Horse Association paperwork, his halter and lead, and his adorable fleece blanket (it had snowflakes on it )

When I bought Shamado he came with a GIANT folder! I got the horse, a halter, his Jockey Club papers, USEF horse ID certificate, ALL vet paperwork, worming info, dentist info and charts, his Arizona Department of Agriculture animal services division hauling certificate, massage paperwork and chiropractic papers, leg X-rays from 2002, and, of course, a bill of sale.

Echo, on the other hand, came with much less... I got the horse, his AHA paperwork and that's is. I had to bring my own halter to use to trailer him home.
