Horse shopping and horse selling both can be very stressful, and no fun. There are lots of dishonest people out there, or ones that are downright ignorant.
That's a really unfortunate situation, newhorsemom. If you don't mind me asking, what are you looking for? And what are you planning to do? I hope everything works out for you. (:
I will start horse shopping again next year (when I have a budget again, and when I am all healed. Ugh) and I can tell you... I'm not looking forward to it x.x
The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.
