    Actually I went back again and became really attached to her, set up right of first refusal and scheduled a vet check and trailering... And yesterday they sold her without even calling me. I am so heartbroken about losing her. :( I guess it's back to the drawing board.

    Really sorry about that
    Horse buying and selling can be very frustrating. I sell a lot of weanlings for the ranch I work for. Sometimes I have one listed for month without a respond, then, all in a sudden, two or three serious buyers contact me and it's difficult to juggle through it without making the one or the other mad - or not having the foal sold at all at the end. So I do understand what the sellers went through, too, but I try to make it a point to call the other party at least for a heads up. I'd never sell one to somebody else without warning if the person had been already visiting a couple of times!
    Just out of curiosity: Did you ever talk numbers (price) with the seller?

    We did! They were firm on the asking price and I agreed to it. When they didn't give me the right of first refusal like we agreed, I offered (in desperation) above their asking price as a competitive bid and all the owner would say was "I am so sorry, you were so good together and I really wanted you to have her" because apparently her husband (who made the sale while she was out of town) refuses to tell the other buyer about the mistake. All they will do is offer to return her deposit if the buyer changes her mind, and let me buy the mare.

    ^ sorry to hear that. But I am also a firm believer in "things happen for a reason". The right horse is out there and you will find it. Keep us posted on your search!!!
