    I think your mentor has given you bad advice. If PB's friend wants to leave with her, then so be it. If you have a busy barn and more demand for your time than ever, then you won't be with an empty...
  2. Agreed All the OP is doing is stalling Buyer A. ...

    Agreed All the OP is doing is stalling Buyer A. Buyer A wants too schedule a vetting now. I would let her schedule it and that puts her in the head of the line. I would not encourage other buyers...

    Marriage counseling does not necessarily save a marriage. It can help with understanding why divorce is necessary and working through some of the property issues of a divorce. I'd say the OP's...
  4. I would get the heck out of the middle. Suggest...

    I would get the heck out of the middle. Suggest that they seek counseling and step back. The current crisis likely has much deeper roots and it is something that they need to resolve themselves. ...

    I'm a BO. My question is did the future BO make any attempt to contact the PB after the one month delay? I certainly would if I were holding a stall for someone.

    I agree that the deposit does...

    What exactly are All The Things you need? I do most of my shopping online as it tends to be more convenient and many times, cheaper. Now if All the Things I need are heavy or bulky, then I might go...

    Mr. IF grew up in a house that backed into a cemetery. It was very quiet and much nicer than having another house behind them. My MIL sold the house a few years ago without any problems.

    There is nothing wrong in telling your boss that you applied for another position. In fact, it could be helpful as it signals that you want to do more. If you don't get the new job, at least your...

    In a due respect, the current job you have is a dead end job. You need to move into progressively more responsible positions where you can learn new skills. Here is a chance.
  10. OP, it's not just being the "better match", it...

    OP, it's not just being the "better match", it has to be that they make an offer. Do not hold out for an offer from them. I've sold many horses in my life. Most people do not make offers or if...

    But he could be found guilty of other counts. It takes a long time to read the verdict, apparently because in South Africa, the judge explains the reasoning behind the decision. She recessed with...

    Why not build a run in on skids so you can move it when needed. We have done that with great success. I would be very reluctant to convert a garage into a run-in, if nothing else because of the...

    There is no reason why you can't let Buyer B do an on the farm trial for a week and keep showing the horse. Just put that in your sales contract. I would not keep a horse off the market unless I...

    Makes no sense at all. You x-breed to improve, like adding TB or Arabian blood to warmblood lines. You don't cross gaited with non gaited. I feel sorry for the offspring.

    Word of advice on abandoning furniture. Don't leave it in the house for the landlord to dispose of. Leave it outside for trash pick-up or take it to the dump. I am not sure why you toss book cases...

    If you are going to lowball the price by 80%, don't bother. Just pass. I sold a registered warmblood mare with a bone chip in her hock about 18 months ago. The price was reduced to reflect the...

    When my sister divorced, she got a share of his pension and he got a share of her pension. It worked out in her favor because he had the higher income/better pension. She's now 65 and she is very...

    I don't do a vet check unless there is a contract to purchase. My contract allows the buyer to decline to purchase AFTER THE VET CHECK for any reason what so ever. The deposit is completely...

    If you are going to sell, do it now. He's 15. The older he gets, the less value he has on the market and the less chance he may have to get into a situation you like.

    If his living situation...

    Trust me, you'll get many more people telling you that they want to buy your horse than will ever make an offer for your horse. Keep showing your horse to prospective buyers. If someone makes an...

    I am following along. The US drivers are doing well. Chester Weber is favored to medal, possibly win it. The two other Americans are mid-pack after dressage. I'm looking forward to the marathon...

    She would find it helpful to start attending some Al-Anon sessions herself. It is very easy to develop all sorts of co-dependent behavior when involved with an alcoholic, much less an abusive one. ...

    Thanks RDR. Ironically Eric Canter represents the district where my farm is located (we live elsewhere at the moment). I think he had some good connections with Wall Street and the banks in the...

    Well I am a pretty blunt person. I would ask if he wanted to go the TB and I would tell him that I enjoyed his company and spend time with him socially. I'd also say that I didn't want to impose...
