    Why exactly is this horse the only possible horse in the world you could love, ride or enjoy? He sounds like a nice horse that isn't a good fit for you. I seriously doubt that selling him will...

    Typically HR will say, "whatever you arrange with your supervisor." An oral job offer is really worthless. You want a written offer that provides the details you mentioned, salary, benefits, etc. ...

    Obviously it depends on the work involved, but I agree that the time to discuss this is during the hiring process BEFORE you start the job. For example my employer has office hours from 9 - 5, but...

    If they fire you, they are foolish people. Reliable help is hard to find. There is nothing wrong in changing the days worked. If there is, then you should work at a barn where your efforts are...

    OP, since you work in the insurance industry, you do know if your horse has a pre-existing condition, then the carrier won't cover it. It sounds like you are shopping for coverage because your horse...

    I think some basic education on how our legal system works might be in order. Contract disputes are CIVIL cases. Civil cases result in judgments for the plaintiff or the defendant. Nobody is...

    Lincoln freed the slaves and there is nothing wrong with making schedule changes whether temporary or permanent. I hire someone to feed during the week, but sometimes she goes out of town. She...

    Unless you really, really like your horse, I would recommend selling and buying something else in Hawaii. Having lived in Hawaii and shipped stuff (not horses) there, it gets very expensive fast.

    Dressage ponies are getting more popular. I would network to get the right market. I have found sales to be good IF you have the right horse, the right location and the right level of training. ...

    With absolutely no disrespect to Courtney Cooper, as I take consignments from my own breed, a sales barn will mark up horses. My sellers want to commission and board/training costs to them covered...

    If you are insuring him, then look at the market value of similar horses at the same competition performance level. It will also tell you if the offer you received on him is in the ballpark.

    If you go, swing by Windreach Bermuda and say hello my former boy, Crow. He is a grey dun Fjord, probably the only one of the island. He seems to be doing very well there and one day I will visit,...

    Send the owner a letter since phone messages aren't working. Do you know the name of the farm. Perhaps there is a web site you can check.

    Most importantly, get some therapy for your anxiety...

    Is this hoof picking an issue for the OP because it is not getting done or the OP has concerns about who is doing it? Are we talking big bucks here?

    Don't charge a mileage rate because you become a commercial shipper and may void your insurance. That being said, you may accept reimbursement for gas and expenses. Or just increase the purchase...

    The money is going to be a problem. You have seen the problem; it is unlikely to change. No matter how convenient it may be, find another living situation. This one is unlikely to work out well. ...

    I don't take the AWS very seriously as a breeder, but it will tell you his DOB. That's invaluable.

    Just want to add that whether it is a "fair" price or not to the OP is irrelevant. The price is whatever a willing buyer and a wiling seller agree upon. It's a function of the market. I do take...

    Why not ask the yearling's breeder? I assume that the chain of ownership is not that long and convoluted that you can't trace back to the breeder.

    Given the OP's past experience with trials.....nothing off the farm. If the horse goes off the farm for a buyer, it will be at my own choosing or because the buyer is paying for mileage and time for...

    The books are better than the show. However, there are too many story threads in the book and I understand why the show had to make choices. I am looking forward to the show next spring because it...
