Online stalker...No, I do not want to buy your horse, thank you very much ... VENT
I have a sale barn and advertise some of my client's horses on Facebook, Bigeq, dreamhorse, warmbloods-for-sale ...
I have been receiving a bunch of messages from a person that I do not know in the 1st place trying to advertise her horse for sale.
At 1st I took the time to answer nicely but now it is starting to get on my nerves.
Is it common practice ?
Anybody else has been harrassed by sellers when they are not even looking for a horse?
I have had people I don't know at all advertising some of my horses for sale on their website
I have had trainers using pictures and videos of me to market their horses after I went to try their horses for some of my clients. Of course, nobody ever asked me.
I have had people using my name in an ad to sell their horse after they had owned it for 9 years (not so sure, the training I put is relevant after 9 years...).
But it is the first time that I get people sending me ads of horses for sale in response to ads of horses for sale.
I would reply telling them you'd be happy to help market their horses, give them a list of your rates, the amount of commission you'd expect, etc, and ask for their address so you can send them a bill up front!
