    I think you are saying that your big concern, and a very fair one, is that, given your experience, if he won't go for you, he won't go for anyone. Sometimes that's not necessarily true, and there is...

    $5/day? Can you board my gelding? ;)

    Another thing to write into a contract are dates. Such as "board until ___" a date that was longer than expected so give some cushion, but not forever.

    She said she bought him because he was pretty and available. He's still pretty and available. There are just very few people interested in that at the moment, and one of the very few already bought...

    They can be herd bound immediately when things about their circumstances change.

    It isn't a character flaw. It's a natural behavior that springs from insecurity.
