Buying/selling with/without halter?
I wanna throw a question out to all of you:
When you buy/sell a horse, do you get/provide a halter?
I always thought of it as an unspoken rule that the horse comes with a halter and I have always provided one when I sold a horse.
I am right now in the market for a new horse and have inquired about a few and was told - more often than not - to bring my own halter...
The mare I bought in December didn't come with one and luckily we had one in the truck... I find that odd...
How do you feel about that?
Am I too particular about it?
Yes, you're being too particular.
If you get a halter with the horse, great. If you don't, so what?
I always take a halter and lead line with me when I pick up a horse, since it's never a given that they're going to give you either of those things. Besides, I'm just going to buy the animal a new one anyway.
I always bring my own just in case. Both of my horses came with a halter but I don't use it. I am very picky about my halters and Each of mine have their own and it kinda gets on my nerves when it's on another horse. Grrr..I think If I sold a horse I would provide a halter, but not a really expensive one. I've sold a horse before and I didn't have time to grab one of my older halters for the man because he didn't have a halter so I was REALLY not happy when he took my $40 halter and my lead rope..I went to get halter and come back and he had already loaded the horse and got in his truck.
Some states (not sure which though) have laws regulating that the sale of a horse includes a halter and a lead rope.
I think it is common sense that the seller include a halter with the horse. Yes, it will be their oldest and yuckiest halter ever. But it is a halter.
I have never asked though. I have an emergency back up halter with me, just in case. But I approach the situation like the halter is part of the horse.
My first horse came with a really pathetic excuse for a halter. I still have it, when I sell her, I'll offer it with her. I wouldn't give away her good halter. Just like I am sending her to a trainer shortly, obviously I'll send her in a functional, sturdy halter but it won't be her good one, that way if something happens to it, I won't be upset.
Always bring a halter and leadrope when you pick up a new horse. My last one came home in a halter and dog leash. Remembered to bring a couple different halter sizes, forgot the lead rope!
I always sell a horse with a halter I also tgink they should be privided when baught

when selling we have always provided a halter and when buying we have always received a halter.
I always sell with a halter & sometimes a lead as well.
i have always sold my horses with a halter, and would provide a lead also if the buyer needed one. obviously i'm not going to give away my best or favorite halters, but i personally think it's just the right thing to do to send the horse you're selling with a decent halter.
on the flip side, when i go to buy a horse i always bring a halter and lead. i would prefer the horse to come with a halter, but if not, i'd like to be prepared. it's not a huge deal if someone doesn't want to include the halter with the horse, especially if they only have a horse or two. maybe they only have really nice quality, or leather halters? i wouldn't expect them to hand one of those over to me.
I have never gotten one with a horse!
