Customer Question

We are Quarter Horse breeders located in SD. We host a production sale every year as well as sell private treaty. We sold a 8 year old registered Quarter Horse gelding 4-3-10 to an older gentleman who was using the horse for his personal use at his farm/feedlot. This horse was in excellent condition and health. He was current on his vaccinations and sound in every way. He paid our asking price of $8,000 and asked us to hold the check for 3 days to try him in his environment. 3 days later he called and was pleased with the horse and agreed for us to cash the check. Now over 7 months later he called and states the horse is cripled and was that way when he bought him. He wants us to buy the horse back for $5,000. We have not seen the horse since it left our possession April 3. What are our legal rights after 7 months following a sale? Thank you, Doris
