Selling my youngster

Post  Ritchie on Mon Sep 15, 2008 3:15 am

Just want some ideas guys.

I can't afford 2 horses atm. I am struggling to just keep them in the paddock and fed, shoed and the like.

BUT I really don;'t wanna sell my youngster. I don't want the money that I would get from selling him. It's more abou the saving of feed, breaking in and the like.

In about a year I expect to be in a much better financial position.

My question is - can you lease youngsters out? then get them back in 2 - 3 yrs? I would have thought that it would be unfair for the leaser as they put all this work in to a baby (breaking them in etc) and then they have to give them back for nothing. Any ideas guys?? *sob*

*hugs* Ritchie.

Not too sure what to suggest. As you said, some people would be pretty hesitant about leasing a young horse and then having to give him back.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm any chance of finding some cheap agistment at all Ritchie???

Bit further out from where you are but that you can just throw him out for 12 months or so to grow up and be a horse that you dont need to check on him all the time? That the property owner keeps an eye on him??

Meant to add, that young Gryphon that we have, hes here on agistment cos we have paddocks for him to be in ........ his owners just pay for his feed and water usage! Craig just does the trims on his hooves for nothing and he gets wormed when the rest of them get wormed! Smile

That's good news ritchie, good ol Mum n Dad ay Very Happy

My Mum N Dad help me out when I need but fortunately (touch wood) I have been able to cope so far...........But Not long after I purchased my house (4yrs ago) I came down with a bad case of shingles and couldn't work so the bills mounted up a bit ...........Mum to the rescue, bless her she came around took all the bills off the fridge and paid them then she went to the shops and bought me about three weeks worth of groceries. Parents are great when you need them afterall we never stop being their babies. I am lucky they stand by me and sounds like yours do too. Wink
I guess my Mum and Dad realise too that my animals are my life and the most important thing in my life. They even refer themselves as Nanny and Grandad to my fur kids, hehe they are funny. lol!
