If you are selling a horse "as is" with no guarantee of soundness, your check will be drafted the night of the sale.
However, if you as the seller guarantee soundness to the buyer, you must wait 72 hours until your check will be drafted to allow buyer ample time to ensure the horse is in fact sound. Buyer has 72 hours to conduct vet check on the premises. If horse leaves the premises before vet check, guarantee is void.
SOUND refers to the horse having sight out of both eyes, hits the ground sound on all four legs, and does not crib. However, a seller may sell a horse sound that cribs if he announces that fact while horse is still in the ring before the fall of the gavel.
BUYER HAS 72 HOURS FROM TIME OF SALE TO HAVE HORSE VETTED. ALL VETTING MUST BE CONDUCTED ON THE PREMISES. IF HORSE SOLD AS "SOUND" DOES NOT PASS VET CHECK, SELLER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING 8% UNSOLD COMMISSION TO CROWLEYS.
All guarantees are strictly between buyer and seller. We act as agents only.
