    Sounds to me like the trainer wants to kill the deal for money reasons which I can only imagine. Maybe trainer will get a fee if she brings in a buyer, but would not if seller finds her own buyer...

    Oh, and budget for hauling your new horse to your barn. Get quotes. I paid more to haul my horses to the barn than I paid for the horses. Yes, I have cheap horses, but just sayin'.

    If you take seabreeze's good advice, you could put aside a few month's of budgeted fees to start your emergency fund.

    Two issues I would think about are your horse's welfare and your budget. Think about your philosophies on adequate horse care, including feed, environment, and social needs.

    Maybe think of this in terms of him as a young person starting his first job, rather than as a mentally/emotionally delicate person? If you think long term, you want a son who knows how to...
