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?
