Preparation of your draught horse or mule for sale
In a recent sale where I had the best-selling Draft Dule, I couldn't help but notice how many poorly trained you were. The successful sale of a horse or horse involves six important activities: Groom. And the more you groom and groom your pet and take care of it, the better it will look for you and anyone interested in it.
If you have a neat pet with a shiny fur and a shiny hair and a hair and a tail that are not full of confusion, you will get more and more approving looks and a better prize than one that has just been thrown into the slurry piles and covered with chips. There is no need to bath the pet every single morning or night, but the generous use of a scrubber, combs, knife, perspiration and effort will help you get the job done.
Nurture the sales pet with the same diligence and attention to detail as you would nurture a tournament pet. It is best to achieve the required effect with regular maintenance over a period of years. There is no way that you can carry out all the necessary maintenance work to give your horse its best only on the sales date.
Remember the shopper who is inclined to give a handsome horse or horse a little more than a harsh wintry one. Once the date of the sale approaches, make a checklist of items you can take with you for sale. Actually, you take whatever you feed, care for, wire harness/tack, etc.
You will find it much simpler to take a number of things with you than to need a foot shot and to pull it on with a twist because you have forgotten yours. Oldtimers say that the best colour you can have on a horse at sales times is grease. However, having the pet in top form does not mean that you can only eat it with maize and lucerne.
An arbitrary number of feed programmes will give your pet a beautiful flower. In the second part of "fit" the pet is conditioned through work and movement so that it is in the best possible state. When the only amount of free practice you can devote to this task is 10 min per days on the lunge line, do it in any case.
Horse's foot, leg, mane, tails and teeths are all part of the "trimming equation". Among the most harmful things for the cost of a horse or multi is the animal's call to be a forwarder. When this property is your cause for the sale of the pet, then you can continue.
Do not show the purchaser a horse or horse that requires a 30-minute clipping work. Search for them and work on them as you prepare for sale. Make sure that the tooth needs to be smoothed, as with almost all equines over two years old.
When you portray your pet as broken, it should be broken. A misrepresentation of an animals can destroy your good name for all eternity. The majority of horse men are friendly and indulgent when an honourable error has been made. However, anyone would find it difficult to justify selling a Coggins horse as well.
If you say that your pet is forced to work, be ready to show it to the happiness of all who want to see it. When you sell a spreader, nobody will expect it to enter the left-hand guide slit of a six-digit towbar. Begin to train the pet long before you see the first purchaser.
There is no horse that cannot be ridden, and there is no Cowboy that cannot be thrown. "In the further course the horse is not yet bred, which will not be frightened by one or the other, the other, the one or the other. There have been many papers on how to bomb a horse or horsefly.
It is enough to say here that you need to get your pet used to the environment it is in and make sure it is willing to agree to the location before trying to yours. Don't take an insect that has never been off your ranch to a round and ask it to stay quiet under all conditions.
Obviously, you should give him the chance and space to investigate all possible dangers before asking him to do so. For me as a purchaser, nothing is as disturbing as trying to do deals with a so-called salesman who apparently has no interest in selling.
You got a horse or a horse to trade, let's go in there and trade it. Let a brazen cry be for the virtue of your beast. Once I was teaching a foal to raise his foot on HZ and from right and wrong, front and back.
Your pet can be taught to take just one stride at a stretch, which is useful when bundling strains. No matter what the ploy may be, if you have a giveaway, you will be recognised as a salesman who will spend a lot of your valuable hours with the beasts. You have to yourselves as much as the beast.
No matter whether you are buying on a farmyard or buying, you will get a relationship with everyone who is interested in your game. It is the only part of the sale where the pet is almost irrelevant. Okay. You and your horse are about to step onto the sales ring. It' s my thought that you should show the beast how it does what it does best.
When he' s a workhorse, he's a mechanic. When he' s a horse wandering, let him go for a walk. There are as many ways to sell a horse or bridle as there are human beings, I guess. I' ve done some home sales and sales ring sales. Mississippi Charles Underwood of Sumrall is clerk of the Mississippi Draft Horse & School Association.
