I can't afford that extra $1500 for the papers, that would make me pay $2600.
I really like this horse already, it was like that instant connection.
The thing is is saying "The papers or no deal," would mean no deal. She isn't in a hurry to sell him at all.
Would it make sense to have her transfer the papers to my name and then just let her keep them? I just want the horse to be mine, in every possible way with no risk or strings attached without forking out 1500 more.
I called the AQHA, they said she has to submit to them that the horse has been sold without papers and his registration number and registered name must be on the bill of sale as well as a note that he was sold WITHOUT the papers. She has to get a hold of the AQHA with my information so that way the horse will be legally mine as far as the AQHA is concerned however, she will retain the papers and I will not be able to buy a copy of it from the AQHA unless she resubmits the sale saying that I now have the rights to his papers.
