A picture is worth a thousand words; a horse is worth a thousand pictures

In the article 12 Tips for Selling Your Horse from The Horse website www.horse.com there are 12 important steps they recommend to consider when selling a horse.

Having been in sales nearly all my professional career, the truth is, this is an incredible list and they work. They are the basics.

However, I'd push #2 even further, having learned a thing about staging and presentation.

I've added "2.a."

It would be : 2.a. Use a hand-crafted watercolor portrait to add to your "sales" package.

It serves two functions.

1. Love. Once your animal is sold, you retain the portrait as a reminder of what that horse meant to you.
2. More Love. A buyer is going to love that you loved your horse. It reflects that you only want the best for it.

By-the-way, here's the complete list with one additional item:

1. Make the Horse Showroom Ready
2. Take Great Photos
2.a. Use a hand-crafted portrait in either oil or watercolor 
3. Get an Equally Great Video
4. Write a Concise and Accurate Description of the Horse
5. Set a Fair Price
6. Target Your Market
7. Organize (or Find) All of the Horse’s Paperwork
8. Capitalize on the Initial Listing
9. Be Responsive to Potential Buyers
10.  Disclose any Health or Training Issues
11. Offer a Safe Place for Trial Rides, and Get Signed Releases
12. Get Your Sales Agreement in Writing

If your goal is to sell your horse, these suggestions are fundamental  to your successful efforts.
