    Default sales question

    If you had a horse that was flourishing in training but then came home with a suspensory injury. Is now sound and moving beautifully what would it be like trying to sell that horse?

    To me it as a potential buyer it would depend on the location and extent of suspensory injury, how far in the past the injury was and how long the horse had been back in regular work.

    If I were selling, I would also expect to offer at a a discounted price, the degree of discount dependent on the specifics of the injury. I would think that I sent off a nice horse for training and it did not hold up to the job at hand so I would effectively be expecting the buyer to take on a known risk.
