aslifegoesby, How was anyone to know that you have a relationship with the seller? When a member comes on her to show off a potential purchase and the only two pictures they present are obviously different horses, what do you expect the reaction or, rather the advice should be? For all anyone knew, you were purchasing the horse off CraigsList and never met the seller before.
Your experience with horses was suspect because you didn't notice the difference, your excitement was over the fact that a cat could sit on his back, and the seller can sit underneath the horse but he is barn sour.
Instead of reading the posts as members trying to be helpful, you accuse them - actually me, of calling the seller a liar and how negative we all are. We don't know you. We don't know your experience, your knowledge, your training, how long you have been around horses, etc. This forum is a very helpful place if you give the right information and take things as someone trying to be helpful.
As for experience .... the answer to that is in my signature: Some people are around horses for 20 years, and some for 1 year 20 times.
Good luck with your purchase and I hope you get the pictures cleared up.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
