I might have read this wrong, you said they were having trouble getting the money together and that your were only selling him for $100? I would say that if they are having trouble coming up with $100 they are going to have trouble affording feed, farrier, and vet care, i mean what if something happened and they don't have the money for the vet care the horse needs?

If you don't feel right don't sale! The horses we just got the people had sold to someone a year or so before us and she went to see them a week later and they were in a small dirt lot with a bunch of other horses and getting kicked and bit at she went home and told her husband she wanted them back and her husband told her they went theirs anymore to make a long story short she called the guy and bought them back for more than they had sold them for but they were back with her! I am sure glad she did cause we have to great horses now! And she has been to see them once since they been with us and she is very happy that we have them!

Definitely do it before they pay, after all right now it's not their horse. I made a big mistake in selling a mare I had. Normally I google the name of people I sell to, this time I didn't and it ended up I sold her to an alledged hoarder.
I am NOT happy at all, but the person paid for her and I had signed her over and have no right to her anymore. Makes me sick everytime I think of it.

A woman can NEVER have too many horses.....

Everything worked out fine. The horse went to a great home.

They actually had a statement from their bank about the issues they had, which was entirely the banks fault.

I was happy with the place, their other horses looked great they were all fat happy and freindly, and they agreed to call me first if they have to sell him. They had very nice turnout pastures for all the horses and their was way more land than horses. I think He went to a good home.

That's great! I'm happy for you and your (ex) horse. Nice to hear when people are actually what they say they are!

I know it is all worked out now. Congrats on the sale.

I will say that I agree with JDI.

In the future I would suggest you go inspect the places you let your horses go out on trail to before they go out on trial.

You do NOT need an attorney to create a binding contract. Heck, a contract doesn't even need to be in writing (although if it's verbal it's hard to uphold unless there are witnesses).
