Re: [RC] [FWD: Is there any code of ethics in endurancehorse selling?] - Lif Strand

There's about the same amount of ethics as in selling anything. Buyer - and seller - beware. When it comes to selling living beings, it's best to know as much as you can about the buyer (or seller) before agreeing to consummate the transaction.

I think anyone who sells horses that were going to "lifetime homes" has experienced finding out down the line that the horse has wound up elsewhere sooner rather than later. If you're going to sell a horse you either have to let go, or get a good contract that specifies what you need and then follow through on it. In my case, for horses I really care about that I either don't know the seller well enough or just want to be very, very sure that I will really get first right of refusal, I sell only half interest in the horse.

I don't think there are more problems with horse sales than anything else, it's just that with horses (and other critters) we tend to form emotional ties, which complicates the deal.
